I’m in my final three weeks of my student-teaching placement. My mentor was absent today, and I was in full control. I have to say that I find the days where I’m solo have to be some of the best days. I think I truly find my own style when my mentor wasn’t there. He’s been such a great mentor, but being solo is nice. I always second-guess myself whenever my mentor watches me. Did anyone else feel that the days during student teaching when your mentor wasn’t there were very beneficial?
