I am a CSU student and just started my student teaching. Im on their Track A program so I observed for 1 quarter and started my student teaching this quarter and Im "done" at the end of the year. I got switched at the beginning of the quarter because the original teacher I was under decided she did not want a student teacher anymore because she got a new admin position and only had 3 periods with her kids and didnt want to give up 2, which is completely understandable. Only problem is that I had to go into a new school, new environment, new everything and start over and take over. The new school Im at is ok. Im currently student teaching two classes - 2 world history periods, and 1 U.S. history periods. I havent fully taken over, instead I have been "team" teaching with my master teachers. The master teacher I have for U.S. History is great. He helps however he can, and allows me to use his lesson plans, and is pretty easy going. His style fits mine exactly - lecture, powerpoint, just getting up in front of the class and talking. The kids do their own work and if they want to learn and pass they can, and if not, its their choice. I was in all AP/Honors classes in high school and thats how most of my teachers were and thats how I succeeded because thats how 99% of college classes are. At any rate, my other teacher started off great. She was very helpful, very friendly, and easy going at first. This previous week, however, it all went downhill. I needed a lesson plan done for this past friday and while I got it done and got excellent reviews from my evaluator, I got the entire lesson into my master teacher the day before. I understand this wasnt cool, and I understand her reason to be upset. At the same time, Im at the school site from 8am - 12pm, then I go home, do homework/assignments for my classes, then head to class from 6pm-10pm from mon-wed. She gave me a week to do it, but with classes, falling ill, and dealing with family obligations, I just got behind. Im not trying to make excuses, just give an explanation. ANYWAY, all turned out well, and the lesson went well. So...my dilemma is that my master teacher has been very quick and rude with me ever since. I even wrote her an apology letter, and took full responsibility, etc, EVEN after she told me to my face that she thought I wasnt "taking this seriously" and that I needed to "learn a little professionalism," etc. That really pissed me off personally because why would I be going through all of this if I wasnt taking "this" seriously? I mean she had a right to be upset, but I feel as though now its just personal. She has been nothing but rude to me for the past week, and while she is still helpful as far as arranging for me to visit other teachers, make copies, and the like, everytime I ask her questions about my lessons or what I should do in certain situations, she just says, "Do whatever you want, its your lesson." Either way you have it, its getting to a point where I feel uncomfortable and am dreading going to the class. Her style of teaching is very different from mine, which is fine, but it seems like if I deviate from that style she doesnt appreciate it too much, yet she tells me to "do what I want." When Im in her class I feel like Ill make a horrible teacher, but in the other class Im happy I do what I do. I dont know what to do...I think if this continues another week or two, Ill have to talk to her or my university supervisor. Ive always had nothing but pleasant experiences at work with bosses, managers, etc so this is all just very foreign to me. Any thoughts...any of you run into something similar? Thanks.
