I'm doing my prepracticum now and I'm going to an 8th grade classroom once a week. It is going fine but I really haven't built any relationships wish my students. I know I only go once a week but I see the kids waving to the para, etc. and the teacher has really good relationships with the kids. I finally know most of their names and I work with them in math. But I feel like my students are less comfortable with me than my mentor. I tried to help a student today but he said he was waiting for my mentor. I feel like I don't know my students at all and it makes me worried about taking over next semester! Advice?
