I still have some things to do to prepare.
Like read the student teaching manual.
Overall, I'm very excited.
But I have some concerns.
That are not at all teaching-related.
What will I wear? Technically, there is no dress code, but it is business casual. No jeans. My closet is a little pathetic right now and could easily go for a nice overhaul. Unfortunately, that just isn't in the budget.
What will I eat for lunch? My current office has a full kitchen - with an oven, stove, microwave, refrigerator. Can I bring my own lunch? Where will I store it? Will I have easy access to a microwave, or do I need to bring cold lunches? Where will I eat? Classroom? Teacher's lounge?
How will I stay hydrated? Sometimes I feel like I have the smallest bladder. The more water I drink, the more often I need to sneak away to the potty. I won't have the luxury of just heading to the bathroom whenever I like. I also
Will I be able to get enough sleep at night? I already have poor sleeping habits. Will student teaching help me correct this or make it worse?
How will this affect my workouts? I begin training for Grandma's Marathon on Feb 13th. Will I be able to successfully focus on both? Will I be able to incorporate exercise into my daily routine and actually get more energy rather than have it zap my energy?
I know I'm largely needlessly worrying. Once I get started and into a routine, this post will seem silly.
But right now, I'm concerned.
Any lunch / hydration tips for me? How do you stop from needlessly worrying about the small things?
