Hi everyone! My name is Ally, I am a senior math major in TEP and I will be taking over the blog this week (so excited :)!
I usually start off my mornings by getting up around 7am and going to the gym (sorry forgot to take a picture). This morning was particularly hard to get motivated as I was up late last night watching the Red Sox win the World Series (yay!!!) in addition to it being a terribly gloomy, rainy Monday morning:(
Afterwards I usually head to my one class of the day, Geometry, and then it’s off to Sullivan Middle School to observe where I will be student teaching in the spring! I observe Mr. Bousquet’s 7th grade math classes and I will be taking over a few of them next semester.
Today was unique because the teacher I observe had prep periods most of the time I was there so I was able to observe other teachers at the school teaching various subjects. Specifically, I used my time to sit in on a History and English class. It was super helpful to gain perspective across different subject areas and observe other teaching styles!
After returning from Sullivan my day consisted of homework, homework and more homework…. oh and emails! Super fun, I know.
I will check in with everyone again soon, stay tuned!
