Substitute Teaching

It's been awhile since I have been last on here posting. Now back in the United States and home in the KC metro, I am looking for a full time teaching position. I graduated the day after returning home and since then have been applying to every school district in the kc metro area. I am currently working for Independence School District as a substitute teacher. I am grateful to have a sub job and it has helped me keep refining myself as a teacher. I got to teach p.e. for K- 2 at a school, which is something I don't have a lot of experience with. I also have been taking a lot of early education jobs, which is something I never really pursued in teaching since I was only elementary ed and not early ed. It definitely is different from elementary ed. I have had to handle lots of potty incidents and diapers, sat through nap times, and sang songs (for those who don't know me all that well, I am a horrible singer- so it was one of my biggest fears singing to strangers.. even if the strangers are only 3 years old).  Tomorrow I have a long day ahead of me at a school I haven't been to before. It is an early childhood- head start school so shall prove to have some funny, good experiences I am sure! Just wanted to give a little update. Will write more later. I have a plan for this blog that involves education articles, projects, lessons, and ideas. excited!!!
