It seems so natural working at a school. Yet I found myself worried about all the things that need to be learned and goals that must be accomplished. I felt defeated by the invisible presence of things that weren't being learned. Then it hit me. I need to know the standards for the school.
I asked the principle and he gave me a short list of things that these kindergarteners needed to know. I can do that. It is attainable in 4 months to teach these things. Addition 1 to 10. Counting along a number line. It's possible!!! I can teach that :)
What a relief it is when the goals are clearly stated and fear is dissipated.
All will be accomplished...of this I'm sure
