I'm currently in my first semester of my student teaching where I go to my classroom once a week. When I met my first CT, we seemed to get along really well. However, once the school year started, I noticed that she seems to be really frustrated with me. When I walk in the classroom, she says good morning and then immediately says something negative about a project I completed for her. One week, I didn't put the butcher paper on the bulletin board correctly. When I fixed the mistake she pointed out, it still didn't meet her standard. The next week, parts of the poster I made weren't cut perfectly straight. Even though everything was laminated and ready for the wall, she wanted me to redo the entire poster. After that, she was frustrated that there were left over bins from when I organized her library. When I explained that some of the books had to be condensed so everything could fit, she said that this should have been thought of when I first organized the books (which was over a month beforehand). ll of these comments have made me feel that I am not good enough, and that no matter how hard I work to make things perfect in her eyes, it won't happen. If I can't make a bulletin board right, how on earth can I teach to her standards? :unsure: I taught my first lesson this week, and it absolutely flopped. Granted, I know that I should have prepared more than I did. That is completely my fault. However, it didn't help that she made comments during my lesson such as "You should have gotten that laminated" in front of the students. Halfway through the lesson, I took the class to specials. She asked me how I thought my lesson was going and I told her it was awful. Right then, I broke down in front of her, which was completely unprofessional of me. Honestly, it was the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to me. She told me she was going to take over the lesson when the students got back. After school, we were reflecting on the day and I mentioned how we're polar opposites, as in she is super structured and firm, and I'm more easy going. She wondered if I thought that we weren't a good fit, and if I needed a new CT. I don't know what she meant by that. It seems that when I'm there, I have to walk on eggshells to make sure that I'm not going to do something wrong, and when I'm not there, I worry if I can handle becoming a teacher. This is the first time I have ever struggled or felt anxious in a classroom setting. I know that I have the passion to become a great teacher, but is passion alone enough? So I guess my question is whether or not I should contact my univ. supervisor about this. Student teaching was something that I've been looking forward to for a really long time, and now that it's here, it's one of the most stressful things I've been though and I'm not even there full time! :help: Any advice, ideas, etc will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
