Field Observations

I started my field observations yesterday morning. I'm observing a 3rd grade class this semester. This school is definitely a lot different than the other schools I've observed at before; it's only 11 years old and definitely full of the more privileged, advanced kids. I'm not sure if I will like it ...

I didn't do anything in the way of actually interacting with kids. The classroom teacher told me she only wanted me to observe, so that's what I did. It wasn't too bad, because the kids had music and gym, so I was able to move around. But still ... I really hope I get to do some real things next time I come. I know I will do some actual teaching eventually, I'm just hoping that day comes really soon.
