Day In My Life - Student Teaching

Hello Monday. Leaving the weekend behind is never fun but as someone who is more productive when I have a routine or schedule, I suppose it isn’t all bad (at least that is what I am telling myself). As many of y’all know, this semester I am doing my student teaching practicum in a fourth grade classroom to finish out my time as an Education Major at Furman. The classroom I am in is the same one I got to visit twice a week last semester, so fortunately I know the students and my cooperating teacher pretty well, which makes this transition into what feels like the real world a little bit easier.

As I am easing into my full time teaching I have been able to teach a number of lessons in math and social studies and will continue to expand that to other subjects over time. While no two days are the same at the school I thought it could be fun to share what I am up to generally each day. I am slowly figuring out how to make the most of my time at Furman and hope that that will get easier over time.

Well, there you have it. A typical day’s schedule this semester. While there are a number of challenges that come with student teaching (getting out of the car when you arrive at school & trying to figure out when you’re going to pick up your packages from the mail room at Furman) forcing myself to go to bed early has been a little difficult. Reading at night has definitely helped with that, and I know over time I will continue to get more and more tired so it may start to come a bit more naturally.

I hope y’all enjoyed this look, however, if you’re looking for what a normal day used to look like when I had class I have posts about that here and here.


  1. That's so awesome how you can spend your student life racking up experience teaching. It'll set you forward for the future for sure!

  2. I can totally relate to this routine! Mine was so similar when I was student teaching. It's such a new routine, totally different from college life; although it is totally worth it in the end. You've got this girly!

  3. The early wake up is SO hard to get used to, but eventually it gets easier.

  4. I always love your Day in my Life- so fun peeking into your life at Furman!


  5. Your story is very interesting and it's great that you are managing your time well. Unfortunately, I didn't know how to do it properly before, but I am grateful to . Thanks to their help, I have more free time. Even then, I knew I needed help and I was failing and I couldn't find a really good resource to help me. It's up to each individual to figure out what will help them get the balance they need and when.

  6. This is a good post. This post gives truly quality information. I’m definitely going to look into it. Really very useful tips are provided here. Thank you so much. Yellowstone John Dutton Corduroy Jacket Keep up the good works
