Model School

This week in staging, we started model school where we’re each assigned a class and teach in that class for 4 weeks. I’m teaching 3eme (the equivalent of 9th grade) and it’s an absolute mess because it’s the first time I’ve taught a class of 35 kids in a language I started learning a month ago. Cut to a psycho Nasara yelling at bunch of 15 year olds in broken French in the hopes that they understand enough to comprehend that finding the conjugate of a square root is both fun and engaging. Not to mention I confused all of my kids for a solid 5 minutes when I forgot to put a tail on my 9 because you need those here. But you’re supposed to be bad at teaching now because it’s not a “real” class and it’s okay to make mistakes. Right? RIGHT!?

Type A Hadden is loosing it just a little.

  1. Hang in there. It’s just one of the lessons you are learning….even here in the states when we start a new job we can have no idea what we are doing in the beginning. In a few months you will be a pro!!!! You are still learning….and yes you are type A which means you face challenges like this with confidence 🙂

  2. Being out of one’s comfort zone is where the learning and growth begin, although it can be frustrating and scary. I was flustered by an American community college student not only not silencing her phone in class, but ANSWERING it! I can’t imagine another country, culture and customs. You are much braver, and will be that much stronger than me, for these experiences! Go Type A Hadden!

  3. Parlez-vous francais? Too bad you can’t head to Butler to work on that French of yours 😉

    I’m having so much fun reading your updates! Keep them coming!
