So, this is my ninth week in my student-teaching experience. Things have been going great. I love what I’m doing. Today started off great. I was positive, the kids were positive, and I felt that this week was going to be great. Until after lunch today. My mentor and I teach all morning and then have a break in the late morning/early afternoon before our last class. So, I felt funky going into the final class but just ignored it. I got the kids started on their warmup and then started going over it with them after a few minutes. As I was talking, I completely lost my train of thought and couldn’t finish. My mentor had to pick up where I left off. I decided to brush it off and continue after the warmup. As I was talking, I just felt nauseous and had to run to the bathroom. When I returned, my mentor asked me if I was okay, but I said yes and moved on. The school day continued, and after school, I mentioned that I did, in fact, get sick during the lesson. My mentor told me to stay home tomorrow, and I feel horrible about it. I really wanted to get through this experience without any absences, but that’s not going to happen. He’s told me that I’ve been doing great and probably just need a day to recuperate and take care of myself. I just can’t stop feeling guilty or feeling that I let him down.
