I have been student teaching for over three weeks at a first grade level which I am not happy about. I really cannot deal with kids at this age level. I am so frustrated that I am thinking of quitting and getting an educational studies degree instead then go on and doing courses in reading education. I am overwhelmed and depressed and I feel like I have made the biggest mistake of my life. I do not prepare for my classes and I really do not seem to be able to get myself together. What is so sad is that I have been an A student all through my college career and all my teachers have high hopes, and here I am unable to go on. What can I do? I am very ashamed to talk to my teachers and I am at the edge of quitting, with graduation only two months away.
