So today we start teaching our demo lessons to real students at New Teacher Boot Camp. We continue teaching demo lessons tomorrow too. I don’t have a lot to say, except for some reason, I’m super nervous. I know I’ll never see these kids again (they volunteer to come in for community service credit for their community service requirement), and I know my performance doesn’t really matter in the long run, but I’m nervous nonetheless.
Maybe it has to do with the fact that they are there specifically to evaluate me, and the tables have turned. I’m not the only one doing the evaluation. Maybe it’s the fact that some of my new teaching peers are going to be watching me teach too. I don’t know. But hopefully it’ll be over soon enough!
