Teaching Day by Day

Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

First Post

Well, Hello y’all (I need to start working on my southern accent since I am going to be moving to Mississippi in less than four days).

I can’t believe that it is already here. I am trying to enjoy my last few moments of home and calmness before my whole world gets turned upside down. I think I have read every single post on tfanet that is remotely related to institute in the Delta, but I still feel like I have no idea what to expect. These past few weeks have been a complete blur. At the beginning of May I returned home from a semester of student teaching in Chicago, that weekend I graduated from the University of Mount Union, then I transferred from the Metro-Atlanta region to the Mississippi Delta, I switched my placement from early childhood to art (thank the lord!), then I had an interview, got hired, and now I have to get on a plane and head down to Mississippi for a summer that is going to be far from relaxing. Even though I am nervous and I know that this is going to be the most challenging experience that I have ever taken on over the course of my short life, I am excited. So excited that I keep catching myself getting sidetracked and day dreaming when I have essential things to do like starting to pack. Writing this blog post is a perfect example of my extreme procrastination.

Anyways, I just felt I had to write something to get the blog rollin’.
