Yesterday was my first day as a high school teacher. I had come to the school on Saturday to clean up my desk, which was still cluttered by the previous teacher's stuffs like old worksheets, books, CDs, test booklets, etc. My teaching schedule is still a mess, too, so I only get to teach five classes in two days, Monday and Tuesday, and for the rest of the week I'm off again.
The last time I taught a class of high schoolers was one year ago, yet somehow I found myself already feeling comfortable talking in front of the class yesterday. I hope it is a sign that the rest of the semester won't be as hard as I thought it would be. There are still more things I need to learn, though. I'm still confused about the new curriculum and I still need to get to know everybody at school. Also, my desk is still a mess and I need to dump three boxes of the previous teacher's file. Now if only I could find an easy way to take all three boxes without asking for help from anybody (I haven't known anyone!).
But I found a meme in the textbook for eleventh graders! So all in all, it's pretty good so far :)
