    Re: Suggestions for Student Teachers
    By Bertie

    Clip to ScrapBook
    -ask questions, then listen to the answers, take notes, write things down
    -reflect, know yourself, your strengths, your weak areas to work on
    Three student teacher later, here are some things I could add

    -take advantage of this time in a school to soak up all possible experiences, staff meetings, parent meetings, grade group meetings, report cards, marking, supervision, after school stuff - its all part of the package.
    -If you get a prep, observe or volunteer in another grade, to expose yourself to more information and more experiences.
    -Get some file folders and make copies of everything you are allowed to copy, from everyone. File by grade, by subject, by theme, by month - whatever will help you find them again. There is a wealth of experience and material that you have at your fingertips, so take it all!
    -don't speak to parents about their child - leave that to the classroom teacher - remember confidentiality and do not speak about individual children out of the building.
    -enjoy the experience, and I hope you get a mentor teacher you are compatible with!
