    I guess the kids left their tables without cleaning up and left the tables earlier because I told them they could do something else but I had my reasons. Honestly I didnt do anything out of the ordinary so I dont know why she got mad at me. Not looking forward to dealing with this tomorrow especially since Im not sure why I did wrong.

    What were your reasons for letting students leave their tables messy?

    Yeah, I think we need more information, it doesn't make much sense right now.

    oh.....um.....well.....i was just going to put it away for them, theyre 5 and

    I have seen the teacher walk around the tables picking up their scraps to throw away I guess to save time so

    I folowed suit and figured this is a teacher who is not so into the whole "clean up your mess" thing

    And I just didnt think of it ...

    Shake it off and accept it as your first lesson learned. You're the teacher, not the chambermaid. Have a great Wednesday!

    I agree. Teachers have to model expected behavior. If you see her (teacher) clean up after students and then you do it and she gets upset, it may send mixed messages. I would not do that especially when I know a guest or sub teacher is watching me. If I did not model that behavior, I would tell the aide or guest teacher at the end of the day to have the students accountable for their own behavior by cleaning up. It is a learning experience for the teacher as well as the student teacher. Have a great day and enjoy being with the students.:)
