I dislike big tasks. They overwhelm me.
Parent teacher conferences.
End of the year slide show.
I have never done a slide show before. Let alone one on a deadline. School is out on Thursday, so if I'm going to do it, it has to be now.
Mrs. Jones is creating a slide show. She is young and all and knows all about PowerPoint. So hers is going to be Ah.maz.ing. I know. I saw the beginnings of it yesterday.
Because of that I felt compelled to create one for my class. (No, I'm not trying to keep up with the Jones'! Ok, maybe I am.)
All those sentimental feelings. Looking at old photos (from this school year). I just want to capture that in a memorable way.
Fast forward 4 hours.
I have it put together to the beginning of April and I just want it finished. I'm not even sentimental anymore.
It is 5 minutes, 28.3 seconds long. Tomorrow. I will pull it out again tomorrow.
Next year I am so going to do this month by month as it happens. (Giggle, giggle, yah, right, how am I going to have time for that?)
Speaking of next year... I am going to have a student teacher next year. I get to meet her on Wednesday.
I had one once before. Back in the nineties. When I taught special ed.
So, it appears I have another big task ahead of me.
I need help blogger friends.
1. What do I need to do to be organized for a student teacher?
2. What do I need to do to be organized for a student teacher?
I hardly feel organized for myself, now to add another person in.
If you don't respond, I will have to scour blogs, and Pinterest and I don't have time for that. I'm going to make data binders and pacing guides and all manner of goodies. (Big task?)
