I'm Miss Hooyer

I have recently finished my second day of student teaching at West Lyon. So far it has not been too stressful. The 7 a.m. leave Dordt time has been a bit tiring but I think I"ll get used to it.
The teachers I am working with seem very helpful and the students aren't bad either. I have a lot of names to learn. And I've learned that you really can't tell what grade a student is in by looking at them. There are some huge 5th graders and tiny high school students and when they're not in their respective grade-level bands, I have no clue. But I am starting to know some of the students.
Tomorrow the plan is that I can lead 6th grade band through the beginning of their new method book for 10 or 15 minutes. No extreme planning necessary for that, but it will be my first time with a large group there so I hope it goes well.
Thanks for your prayers, thanks for your interest. I'm off to orchestra.

Today (Friday) I've added pictures of the band room and the office area (complete with anonymous students- I don't think it would be professional to simply post the picture of them).

well "Miss Hooyer" (that sounds wierd) just think, you're sleeping in 1.27 more hours than me! I think that the smiley kids are quite entertaining and their anonymousness is appaling (when I first saw it I thought they were wearing masks, but alas, they weren't) anyhow, thanks for the hat!

Hi Hannah!
I just went to your apartment to get my western civ book and other lost items. Anyway, I hope you are having fun at school. I have to skip spanish conversation to go to the NISO fundraiser... sad....
