The last week…. beginning 13/December/2010
It is the last week at my first school. I have a lot to get done this week before I can end so I’m not really feeling that there is only a week left.
My observation is on Wednesday with my year 7s and I know it will go well, the lesson planned is really quite different and quite fun.
I am still sleeping only about 4 hours a night. Been working damn hard to get all the paperwork done. On top of that I couldn’t tell you where the time goes. The worst part is that I am always working! I think I have just fallen so behind and now anything I do takes twice as long and I can’t seem to increase my productivity rate. I have spent the past week (and will spend the next few days) trying to get my paperwork sorted. It is incredibly difficult when I don’t have a printer and school has told me not to outdo my quota. I need to add more detail to my evaluations and topic plans (apparently I have to do some sort of mind map as well?!).
It is also absolutely freezing these days and pitch black all the time. I go to school and it is dark…by the time I leave to come home, it is dark. Not really sure how long I can go on like this. My room is a disgusting mess. I haven’t eaten more than one meal a day in about 3 weeks. I miss home terribly.
I can’t keep this up. This may not be for me.
