I've been helping out and observing in my host teacher's classroom all this week. We've decided that I'll start teaching in a week and a half (so soon?!) when they start their new unit. I'll be teaching all about rocks and minerals, which means that I will be learning a lot of this stuff just before I teach it to the kids. Should be interesting. The unit will run for four weeks, at which time the school goes on spring break. After spring break, the students come back to family life, which I'm legally not allowed to teach and for privacy's sake not allowed to be present (which means I get a three week spring break, all in all). After family life, the students move on to studying the atmosphere, which my host teacher tells me is really fun. All in all, I'm looking forward to the next few months.
