Back for the Holidays

It has been too long since I last posted anything. I have a bunch of pictures on Randy's camera, but I don't know where the cable is to download them to the computer. We are moving out of our apartment soon, and I can't wait. Our neighbors don't know how to be quiet at 3:00 AM. The new apartment will be bigger AND $200.00 cheaper. Hooray!

I am so excited for Christmas! Thanksgiving was a blast. We had dinner with my family and played games. On black Friday, Randy and I decided to sleep, but we went to Target at 10:00 am and got Elf. Later, we went and ate dinner with Randy's family who was in town. It was good to see everyone.

I only have one full week of student teaching left. It has been a good experience, but I can't wait to be done. It will be nice to be in charge of my own class where the students won't see me as just the "student teacher" :) There is one girl who must not think that i know much. Listen to this story. We were playing music Bingo, and the teacher clapped the rhythm wrong, so she asked me to help and I fixed it. A few minutes later, the know it all girl said "Can you clap the one rhythm where you had to help Mrs. Hoffman?" Yeah, that's right. She thought that I was the one who needed help. Lol, not that it really matters. I just want to the kids to believe that I know more than them. Way more. Randy would call me a music snob right now :)


  1. The thing is that we ARE music snobs. And I hate to tell you that even though we're brilliant and each a musical genius, sometimes you mess up as the real teacher. It's embarrassing at first, but it helps remind those kids that we're humans. And not robots.

    Now I just laugh when they have to correct me. :)

  2. I know what you mean! When I'm teaching in front of a class, it almost makes me embarrassed if they ask a question I don't know, because then the students look at you like, "You must be an idiot".

    No matter what the state of California says, there are about a million things about history that I DON'T know! But then again, we all know how kind high school kids are... ;o)


  3. Ha ha ha! How cute! It's something that you'll be able to look back on and laugh, right? I hope you love your new place!
