first day of student teaching.
well, i made it through the first day! there weren't any kids, so i guess it really hasn't even started yet---but i still get nervous about what to wear (i'll come back to that subject), where to park, what room to go in (even though i already know), etc. but i got into the building fine, found my teacher & we had a great time together! we just had a few meetings & worked on getting the classroom ready for the kiddos (her word). ok, back to my outfit---after carefully planning just the right thing to wear (a pair of light blue w/ white pin-stripe capris, with a white v-neck shirt & yellow sandals) it all back-fired on me. this morning, as i was getting ready (brace yourself, this is an embarrassing story) i couldn't get the zipper to stay up so i (since i didn't have time to pick something else out) used a small safety pin to hold the zipper up. problem solved! not. so at school, mid-morning, i use the restroom. zipping up, i PULL THE ZIPPER RIGHT OFF! oooops! now what? well, i do my best with the safety pin, & spend the rest of the day tugging at my shirt to try & cover the zipper area. wow. not ideal, but i made it through.
