Here it is the second last week of summer. The sun is shining. The weather is perfect. There is the carefree hum of the streets. There are no screeching halts of school buses. There is no 6am alarm. There is no three o’clock exhaustion.
So why am I so bored?
I mope around my house. I take naps. I watch “Important Things with Demetri Martin.” I cook a lot (right now I have a tomato sauce simmering on the stove). I read my book half-heartedly. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I want the school year to start! I’m sick of this endless expanse of open time. I want to be in the classroom. I want to be reading to students. I want to be improving my teaching. I want to interact with the curious young second graders I know I will soon meet.
I suppose I’ll just have to wait. And, wait. And, wait.
I did meet with my cooperating teacher. My placement is at Smallwood Elementary (which is so awesome) and my teacher is incredibly nice. She is professional. She is prepared. She is a breath of fresh air. I’m eager to learn from her.
So now, I’ll just have to wait it out. I’ll have to get over my boredom and enjoy sleeping in, enjoy the open time, enjoy the cooking. I know that student teaching will come and I will be ready for it.
