I applied for a teaching job with a couple of odd elementary schools in the cityâ€¦ I didn’t know if I would get any calls for interviews, because it was our first year out of school.
- I had numerous interviews plus a single of the principals wanted me to join his team, however he asked me if I would be interested in teaching the third grade.
I was happy to teach any grade or any subject as long as he was offering me a job. Since I was a first-year mentor, I didn’t have a classroom of our own. I was forced to teach from a portable classroom outside. Some of the older mentors told me to beware of the portable classrooms, however I easily haven’t had any troubles at all. In fact, I kind of love the portable classroom. I have a lot more room than the other mentors plus I have many walls that I can use for bulletin boards. The classroom has a ductless Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system. I have access to heat plus a/c that I can control on our own. I am sure there are lots of reasons why a classroom is better than a portable building, however I have had a hard time coming up with a reason why it is a better situation for me. I am easily enjoying getting to know all of the students. I never thought I would have a class room of our own plus I am positively excited to have a portable, modular, or stick plus brick classroom full of students that call me their mentor.
