So here it is... Wednesday night. I just came in from class a little while ago. Not my classroom, my class at CCNY. My classroom looks GREAT!!! I've already gotten compliments from my supervisor and others who have just passed by. I was going for the bright, early childhood look, and it looks really nice. My chicka chicka boom boom tree looks really good too. Now I am nervous though, because as good as my room looks, I hope my teaching is as good. though I an no longer a fresh out of college teacher and though I have already been slapped by the reality of what the school system is really like, I want to be creative and innovative this year. I want my students to be totaly into me and learning with me. I am not too fond of the school I work in, but I really want to make a good first impression for my students and their parents and I want to stay that way so that my students learn and have FUN!!! is that too much to ask? Help me. How can I stay enthusiastic throughout the year?
