Life As A First Year Teacher

Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

Preparing the move

Well this is a weird feeling. It started with my own TFA email. Then my own apartment. And now my own blog? Real life is getting closer and closer each day. I’m finishing up my final thoughts and reflections on the pre-institute work before packing for induction and institute that seemed so far away. Where did all of the time go?

This is the last week of “freedom” for quite a while. Next week begins my life as a TFA corps member with induction in Indianapolis, and in two weeks I will be in Phoenix preparing for my time as a teacher in an Indianapolis classroom. After institute I have one week to move to Indianapolis, and in-service begins for Arlington High School teachers! I will be challenged more than I ever have in the upcoming weeks, and I don’t know if I am ready for the challenge. I know that it will be very helpful, but am I ready for the hardest task of my life? Preparing my heart and mind is the first step in overcoming the difficult challenges at institute, and that is just what I will do. I must remember one thing: I can do all things through him who gives me strength.
