Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap

Acclimating

Some things I still need to get used to:

  • Being (and introducing myself as) “Miss Mason.”
  • Being asked permission to go to the bathroom
  • The spontaneous barrages of personal questions (and determining whether or not I should answer them)

[EDIT: I started writing this blog post in February, and realized I left it as a draft all this time.  Looking back at my student teaching experience, I'm curious what else I would have included on this list.  I definitely still think that the politics of teaching are more complicated than the content, but I also know that I'll be held to higher standards in TFA and I'll be holding my students to higher standards, so we'll see if that changes.]
