Had my second day of work today. I was worried over the weekend because I didn’t get a scheduling call, but turns out they lost my phone number and only found it this morning.
I’d like to think I’m improving, but who knows. Time management remains a crucial part of my problems. I have the desire to go in depth into every question, but unfortunately it’s not possible and becomes a great waste of time. This is especially true when students are uncommunicative.
Speaking of communication, I’m having a hard time getting through to some of them on a personal level. It’s difficult because I’m an introvert, and I’ve had to adjust to become a bit of an extrovert. I’m also having trouble keeping up their energy level, though I seem to have solved that problem by changing up the way in which we went over questions.
If class wasn’t enough, I spent three hours getting home on buses. Sadly, my house is only 15 miles away from my workplace. Maybe next time I should just walk home and save an hour.
Every time I get out of class, I feel like my brain has completely shut down, and I don’t feel like doing anything but sleeping. Next week I begin two two hour sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays. I can’t imagine how I will feel then. Probably very unhappy.
