This is my last semester of grad school! Woo hoo! I am taking my student teaching course and a course (forgot the name!) which is geared toward helping student teachers put together their portfolios. Our university requires a massive portfolio: a 3" binder, full to the brim of many different components so it was a blessing to have them offer a one credit course for all the student teachers to take. My students start school tomorrow so I am gearing up for everything. I am so excited and nervous!
