|Detailed lesson plans. You'll never use them in real life...but you've still got to make one every time you teach in field experience, just on general principles.|
Hi, my name is Miss Briana.
This is my friend Miss T___.
How many of you can remember a time when God protected you?
Oh dear God, help me, I'm a teacher! A BIBLE teacher!
Not really, not yet. Just field experience. Every single class in the Elementary Education program here requires you to have so many hours of experience observing and teaching in a real-life classroom. But it's still scary every time. And to start with Bible class?!!
I have skipped a whole morning of intensive Bible-study "boot camp" weekend seminars to take a mental break and then finish this Bible lesson for the third-graders I'll be meeting tomorrow morning. It's scary I tell you.
Bible class? Okay forgive me, I was home-schooled. We never had Bible class. We had family worship, but no class. Help me, Lord, I feel like I'm heading out to give Bible studies. I am heading out to give Bible studies. This could help make or break these kids' opinion of Christianity, of God. Bible class is the #1 scariest class for me in the whole curriculum. Who cares that it's not on TCAP or ITBS tests and I'll never teach it if I end up in a public school. It just is so...important.
So I pray. Sometimes, it can be good to be scared! :)
