I'm going to say that if my student teacher wanted to do something totally against what I believed, they would be on their own. I would not help with any behavior issues because the student teacher set it up. There would not be two teachers working in the room. I probably would stay in the room but just be an observer. When you have your own classroom, you will not have extra help. Also it appears that the classroom teacher would have the students again for 6 weeks after you are gone and then would have to bring everything back to the way the classroom teacher had it before. I think your college is way off base in requiring things different. If the college wants that, then they need to find teachers only gearing towards their philosophy or have their own school. I was asked if I would have a student teacher and I said yes. I have not received much about what the college is asking for. The college was encouraging cooperative teachers to sign up as collaborative teachers which would have required me to attend several classes on my own time without pay to learn how the college wanted to do it. As stated before, I get nothing out of it and I don't know about my school, but I'm not giving up my personal time. May be selfish but I don't feel that I need to do that. Maybe next time, find someone else.
