Finally...a job!

Current Mood: busybusy
I was finally hired as a teacher...right here in Michigan! It's a new program through the Southgate Adult and Community Education program and the Guidance Center. I'll be teaching kids 14-18 who are wards of the court and are in a juvenile justice program. I have a ton of stuff to do though. Since it is a new program, I was hired to not only teach it, but to also create the entire curriculum. This includes curriculum for English 9, 10, 11, and 12, plus Algebra 1 (don't even ask about this one...yikes!), and eventually history as well. I also have to make the handbook for the program and get my room, rules, and procedures ready. On top of that, I have to learn the computer-based learning program that we will be using in the classes. And...my students will be at all different levels, so I have to assess them and pretty much teach all of them at a different grade level with the curriculum.

Classes start the 15th of this month, and I have about 10 weeks once classes have started to create the entire program curriculum.

I haven't been this busy in, well, forever I think...
