I am always a little anxious to begin a new semester in school, whether it be as a teacher or as a student. It is a little nerve-wracking to start something new! However, after our first class on Wednesday, I feel much better about the semester. I always like "seeing" everyone in Teleplace and getting caught up on what is going on in their lives, and now that I know the expectations for the semester, I am ready to get started!
I enjoy the ladies of our cohort so much! Everyone has a great, positive attitude about our classes, and everyone is so passionate about literature! That is definitely a great environment in which to work! The discussion we had about young adult literature was thought provoking and interesting, as everyone had great points to add. I also really enjoyed decorating our teen room. Teleplace is sometimes very frustrating, but we were able to add a couch, some bean bag chairs, and some great teen posters. I hope that it would be an inviting place for teens to come read some great literature! I am excited to delve into some great young adult literature now!
