I finally got my student teaching assignment!
Good news is: it is at the school I wanted (only 9 blocks from my place!), it is with the teacher I requested (woo hoo!), and it is with the cutest little 3rd graders. I don't start "officially" student teaching until the beginning of October but I went in on their first day of school and met all the little kiddies.
I am excited and nervous!
Any other teachers out there with some words of wisdom?!
