I leave for California, AH! I cannot believe it's nearly here already! I'm not really only feeling moderately prepared, but positive about the fact that I am a good teacher. I just have to show them that! I'm so grateful to have Kelly with me again this year and to not be alone. Last year when I received my email telling me I had been "unsuccessful", I felt so defeated... But, reflecting back I realized all the things I could have done better - mostly, commanded the room. I had zero self confidence and control... which is so unlike me.
All my steps are ready to go, and I've practiced a few times. I will be doing a dry run with Wendy and some students tomorrow night... Eep! :)
This exam is the hardest most terrifying thing I'll ever do in my life. If I can conquer this, I can do anything..
