The problem with there being so much time in between my last practicum and student teaching is that I get jitters about thinking of stepping into a classroom and taking over.
I know once I get in there and get going and see how things work I’ll be fine. But it’s the next two and a half months-ish until then that I have to be jittery whenever I think about it.
At least this summer I’m finally able to have a job (no place has been willing to hire me for just as summer position before, which was all I was previously around for), plus I’m hoping to get back involved with my local scout troop again.
Question for anyone: did you also work a job while you student taught? Was it difficult to manage both? I’m hoping to work at Pizza Hut while I student teach, for gas money and to hopefully stay off my parent’s budget (who are letting me live at home, generous and, in my mother’s case, clingy people that they are), but I’m worried that I’ll have problems keeping both in balance.
