Well this is my first blog entry and for my own sake I wish it wasn’t because I know it’s not going to be too positive. I should have made one right when I got accepted into the Corps but I didn’t think about it. Anyways, I am a 2011 CM that will be working in New Orleans tentatively teaching secondary math. And let me add there should be a HUGE emphasis on tentatively because I took the Praxis II Math Content Knowledge test today and it was unbelievably hard! Much more difficult and different than any of the practice exams I used to study. I know that I haven’t done math since high school and although the concepts aren’t super hard, they are just unfamiliar. Leaving the test site I was really discouraged and upset but after talking with my Dad I realize that it’s over and done with and I’ll just need to do more studying before the next test in March. However, that is also a concern because I studied using the material TFAnet provided and ETS provide so if those didn’t work I’m not sure what else will but, I’ll find a way. No way is my TFA experience going to end before it even begins.
