I just got a call from the Principal from the H.S. that Jim gave me the info for.  Now I'm more confused then when I started this whole process. 

The principal had lots of questions for me that I couldn't answer.  The ones I could, I didn't feel like I was giving him sufficient information because I don't have sufficient information.  I was under the impression that he's worked with students from my program before and from what I'm hearing, it sounds like he hasn't.

All I know is I have to do 200 hrs of "Student Teaching."  125 is supposed to be observation and 75 is instruction.  This is to take place from January-March.  I don't know why they want it all done together and why the observation can't be done seperately.  No one is telling me a damn thing! 

No, I don't have curriculum management instruction yet.  Not formally anyway.  But it's not as if I haven't made lesson plans and carried them out.  I take that class next month.  All in preparation for January when I start this whole mess of actually being in the real world. 

Yes, I understand it's confusing for someone who is a School Counseling student to be doing student teaching when I'm not going to be a teacher, but that's the damn requirement set forth by the TSPC.  I didn't make it up just to give myself something to do. 

All I want to do is get the freaking hours done and get the requirement over with!  I'm looking forward to this part of it, but I hate the hecticness of the stupid red tape and not knowing what I need to do because no one at my freaking school has a clue what's going on.

If I could get this worked out, the h.s. would be fun to teach at.  It's alternative and works with at-risk kids.  So it'll be a challenge, but I think I can work it out.  But that's if I can get a straight answer on exactly what it is that I need to be doing.

I need to talk to Jim tonight and ask him all the questions the principal had for me and then call him back next week. 

I think I'm going to go cry.  It's a shitty day so far.

Oh and my toe still hurts because I dropped the rice cooker on it last night. 
[Error: unknown template qotd]Eeyore.  I'd probably want to kill Tigger.  Even though he'd probably figure a way to bounce himself out of the damn elevator, I'm not entirely sure he wouldn't kill us in the process.  Eeyore may be gloomy about being stuck, but he's gloomy about almost everything.  At least I could sit and give him a hug.
