Teaching the Kiddies
So, I'm gearing up to start a teaching gig tomorrow. I will be doing part time work teaching elementary school kids writing. I'll have three groups: 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. Never taught kiddies before, so I'm excited to see how it goes, I've already got my lesson outlines for the next two weeks so I'm as set as I can be for now. I never had any aspirations to be a teacher, but I love to talk, especially if it's about something I know anything about, so I think I'll do just fine, pretty sure being a writer can only help me be a good teacher for these kids. All I'm hoping for is that they're as close to angelic as elementary school kids who have to take classes in the summertime can get. If they aren't....I guess anyone can be bribed with candy?
