a days observation

14 Aug

What is the deal with time these days?   I feel like this summer crept along and then suddenly sped up to neck breaking speed for 3 weeks.  It slowed down for a little while to what seemed normal and now it’s preparing to take off again.  Exactly 3 weeks from today I will be boarding a plane and headed first to London and then to Prague where I will stay for one, sure to be exciting, difficult, learning-filled, scary, and amazing time earning my TEFL certification.  

I feel like I’m down to the wire and I’m not ready yet.  But at the same time, if I was to leave tomorrow I know I’d be fine. 

School started yesterday and I’ve been subbing and helping out every day.  It’s been good to see the students at the beginning of a year.  After having seen what 8th graders look like at the end of a school year, it is a drastic change.  And for that matter, the 6th graders are SO little.  Wow.  I can’t believe how little they are.  AND the variance of growth spurts within the grades is rather startling. 

When observing a class today I recognized the spark in the students that I have missed all summer.  I love watching kids choose learning.  I love it.
