Did you ever feel like you were never going to get through it? :unsure: My observations have all been great. I have classroom management down pat. My timing and pacing is getting there. The kid's assessments are great in the things I am teaching them. But as I posted in the student teacher thread, my ct and I have very different personalities; she is very "Type A" with lack of a better description, and I am more laid back and calm, and somewhat of a procrastinator, but I get the job done and done well. I know I annoy her because I don't think like she does, and am not as meticulous, which is not to say I accept mediocrity, quite the opposite, but I have a more gentle approach then she does. She has the bar set very high for the students and that includes me, but some days I feel like all she does is criticize every single thing I am doing, even something I am doing the first time...and by criticize I mean be slightly mean about it. There is a difference between giving feedback and saying " You did that all wrong and you forgot this and you forgot that and why did you do this and that isn't good enough" statements. It is making me feel like she will never give me a recommendation since I don't teach the way she does. We just have different styles. She's regimented and I am firm but gentle. I have talked to my supervising teacher and other teacher friends and family who have given me so much good advice, but I am just venting on here because it feels like I will never finish this..Dec 21 feels ions away, and I still have one more class to take on.
