    Student Teaching

    The one that stuck out to me is flexibility!! I just finished student teaching in a primary resource room in June. My teacher was very appreciative of my flexibility. I didn't always FEEL flexible, but even if I did not agree or want to do as she asked, I not only did it, but I smiled :) as I did it, LOL. I got a glowing evaluation and I really did end up having an ok experience. My university professors really stressed that we did not have to agree with our coop teachers...but we should do as they asked with a great attitude. The goal is to leave with a glowing eval and get a job!!

    One other thing. I had no problem with this, but I did notice that some of my younger classmates did.....when your coop. teacher or univ. supervisor ask you how you could have done a lesson, etc. differently...really reflect on it. Don't be defensive or make excuses about the kids' behavior, etc. We all know that there are times when it isn't entirely our fault that something doesn't come off as planned, BUT, the idea is to let your supervisors see that you know things could always be better and you are always thinking and reflecting about how they could be better. GOOD LUCK!! It will go fast!
