Last night, around 8:30 or so, I was notified that my long-term sub position has officially begun today. My main goal for today was to get through it. To begin to aclimate myself and teach the library lessons. I was a bit thrown off by the presence of the book fair which had taken over the entire library. Luckily this is the last day of it and on Monday, the library will be back to "normal." I put normal in quotes because I have only been there twice and am not well versed on what normal really is there.
I am almost certain that Mrs. R will probably drive me crazy before the 7 weeks are up. She did not interupt me while teaching classes (she actually had left by then)...but gave me a lot of unsolicited advice and other comments.
The kids were not too bad. I did have to correct some misbehaviors...it being a more challenging school (a step outside of the city limits). I had the mischievous child, the interupting child, the ever-so-slightly-but-cannot-quite-pinpoint-it disrespectful child, the I-need-to-separate-you-two boys, and also the bossy-tattletale-class-reporter child to deal with. I guess that is pretty typical.
