Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Tonight I'm preparing for one of the most important parts of student teaching: videotaping myself teach. Starting tomorrow, I'll be taping myself teach three days in a row.
I will be working with a reading group consisting of six students, and I'll need to tape myself working with them for the next three days. After those three days are over, I'll need to pick just fifteen minutes worth of footage to submit to the state to prove that I have what it takes to become a teacher. There is a lot of pressure.
The students that I'll be working with, along with the rest of the class, know what I need to do and understand what the next three days will be like. I feel like we're all on the same page now, and I'm ready to begin taping the lessons. I have a plan, and I'm excited to put that plan into motion. I'm extremely nervous, but I'm ready to go.
Wish me luck!!

My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
