Courtney Langton

Courtney is an aspiring high school teacher. Her teachables are History and English, but she's happy to teach anything that doesn't involve numbers or formulas. Her particular interest is in promoting gender equity and anti-oppression both in and outside the classroom. She writes a detailed To-Do list every morning, and enjoys nothing more than a good book and a plate of bacon on a rainy Saturday.

First Impressions
Tuesday, September 1, 2009

I had one class today... and I'm exhausted.

I also helped a don put up the 12 zodiac signs on her floor ceiling using paper stars and tape. This may have contributed to said exhaustion.

I also recognize, though, that a lot of the exhaustion just comes from the fact that today was the first day and that we were all taking in a lot of new information. Nothing was really all that unexpected except for the registration process (where I was told I needed a new student card and then informed that I didn't). I've been racking my brains, trying to think of something else to say that would be interesting but I'm drawing a blank. But I also thought I should at least drop a line to say that the first day went as expected. I did not react in any sort of extreme fashion, which I suppose was good. No arms were waved.
