I'm still waiting to hear back from that interview. I left a message and talked to the guy's assistant. I'm hoping to hear back sometime today or tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed for me my readers. I need a career job, not a shitty minimum wage job.
I have put together a bunch of lesson ideas and projects. I'm especially excited about a project based around Washington Irving's Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I am also excited about the idea of a class blog project. It would be a great way for 3rd graders to be online, safely, and to use the skills they are learning, also the parents could see what their kid is up to. I also had a great idea for an academic club: Natural History Club. Each month the club could put together an exhibit based on a pre-chosen theme like Foods of North America or History of Printing or Native Tribes of Arizona or Natural Mathematics, etc. It would be like going into a single exhibit at a museum, only put together by elementary kids. Below is an image of some basic information that could be used for part of an exhibit. Cool huh?
I've been looking at reading lists and all kinds of stuff. I would like this job a lot. It seems like fun, hard work but fun.
