I will be student teaching this fall. One session in sped, one in elementary ed. My uni does the placement and so this is a new school district for me. I have done extensive time as a volunteer/sub in another district. Here is my question: I was given the names/emails of the teachers I will be with. I have sent a brief introduction email to each. I have not heard anything back yet (it has just been a few days and it IS summer vacation time!). I would really like to meet them both prior to the official start day, which is the day before students arrive, in order to find out about their rooms/philosophy of life/etc. Has anyone any advice to offer for facilitating this? Am I just too doggone happy about student teaching and I need to back off? What worked for all of you (or didn't) when you were at this point? Thanks!
