I have less than a month of student teaching in Kentucky before leaving for Italy. It seems just like yesterday I started the SKyTeach program and now I am about to graduate. I am so nervous and excited to be apart of this experience; to be immersed in a new culture and grow as a teacher. I will openly admit I am scared to leave for a month, fearing things will become exponentially different. But I have to look at what is best for me. In the long run this will help me more than staying ever would. It will prepare me for situations that I would never get to experience in my current placement.
Now in the “home stretch” there is a lot of organizing and planning to do before leaving.
Until next time,
