In this situation, it sounds like hac felt it was very obvious the STs were there ONLY to observe. Given that situation, I still feel he handled the situation professionally by simply asking the ST to stop assisting the students. I know I keep repeating this, but the ST overstepped his bounds in this situation and he should be mature enough not to get his feelings hurt when he was asked to stop.[/QUOTE] That is exactly why when I was doing my observations, I always asked if I could help. Sometimes taking initiative is not the right thing to do.
