OMG! I missed my way!

I get to work in a new school!

I find myself in a new  classroom! 


That’s the way my head has been screaming at me in the past few weeks 😂😂 but I’m okay. I seriously am. 

I don’t know about other teachers but I’m sure this post will resonate. Getting to a new classroom means I have to:

  • Learn the names of my children 
  • Note their peculiarities and prepare my Lesson plan to suit each needs
  • Be super cool and friendly (ask any 3rd Grade teacher. Yep! #iteach3rdgradetoo 

And loads of others… But no one talks about getting familiar with the environment. 😭

I bumped into so many classes that aren’t mine at all! (thank God no child had resumed then 😇)

I missed my turns a lot (please blame the structure 😂)

I kept bumping into things that I didn’t see (I have to change my glasses) 

So what did I do? 

I requested for a tour around the school. Yes I did. (because daughter of man cannot come and be disgracing her ancestors 😂😂 – This simply means that I’m tired of missing my way and had to do something about it)

Now that all that’s done, I can proudly say that I know my way around the school just like I know how to eat my favourite bread. 

So I’d love to hear from you. 

 When you got to that school how did your first few weeks go?

My primary school wasn’t that big enough to mix classes up, but my secondary school was super big and all the classrooms looking alike. I just noted a distinctive dent outside my classroom which I always used as a benchmark pending the time I can navigate my way blindfolded.
Nice write up

I think I’m good with description. I guess I didn’t find that as a challenge.

From my personal experience i think it’s normal for one to miss their way in a new environment. But, in your case i blame it on the super colourful texture of the building.
I teach too but right now i don’t wanna start teaching my colleagues here in the University. If you go and “gbagaun” lasan, be sure you just got yourself a new name.
I missed helping my cousins with their assignments though.
I hope one day I’ll be able to impart lives just like you
I won’t wanna shower you with praises before that small head of yours start swelling.
Keep it up dear, I’m inspired.

During nysc, and getting used to the environment was not difficult for me, let’s say God and the school’s structure was easy to learn!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
