Feeling very overwhelmed! I no longer am looking for my dream grade or school, I am just looking ANYWHERE for a job. Any tips or suggestions are accepted! :)

PHEW! Student teaching is DONE DONE DONE! I can't believe it!!! Tuesday was my last day and it was so sad to say goodbye to those kids! They were very concerned that I was leaving and said I should teach them 3rd grade- they are 2nd graders. Well didn't that just melt my heart!!! They brought in books for my classroom and my supervising teacher made me a shutterfly photo book... tear... tear.... She is the best ever, I couldn't have asked for a better class! They truly helped me become a better teacher.
On to Currently.... Link up with Farly!

Joining Farly over at Oh' Boy 4th grade for Currently!
Listening to college basketball, DUH, best sport ever, and my Fiancee is the biggest college fan ever I pretty sure! Loving my student teaching, going so well! Thinking that I should be planning because I now have complete control of the classroom, YIKES! Wanting a new car because mine is old and really think I deserve a early graduation present! Needing to look for those o so many jobs, ((sarcastic tone)). And my name is Jenna so I love me some bling bling so put jewels, love me some jelly beans, and hate those jumping jacks!! Love to exercise just hate those! :)
Student teaching is going REALLY well! My teacher is really awesome, and I have learned so much from her! We have been working on a unit on the Iditarod and we will be following our mushers along as they progress through the race! These second graders are awesome, I couldn't have asked for a better class!! We are starting a science unit after our spring break, which is next week, we have same as college because we live Bloomington, IN home of the HOOSIERS, which are number one by the way.... ANYWAY as I was saying, we will be planting peas! The kids are so excited! I am also beginning a writing workshop unit on small moments!!

Getting more things to teach as my student teaching is getting farther along. I have second graders I am now teaching Science, Math, and 2 big units. The big units are the Iditarod, which I think I'm going to talk about Alaska also. The other unit is about Global Awareness, the teachers got a grant from our city to buy books and fund a field trip for this one, we got three books If the World Were a Village, A Life Like Mine and Material World: A Global Family Portrait
For the Iditarod unit the second grade team is inviting a speaker from the community who used to be a teacher at this school and did the Iditarod Teacher on the Trail Program. She wrote the book The Double Life of an Alaskan Sled Dog. She is amazing!! She is coming in to do a presentation,every Tuesday in February and then in our individual classrooms we will also be teaching it.
Do you teach the Iditarod or global awareness in your classroom?? Love to hear!
