    Cooperating Teacher
    By Eileen

    I have just finished my first placement and also had a positive experience. My Cooperating Teacher included me in all activities, asked my opinion, and made me feel as though I was part of the group no matter where I was in the school (in the classroom, teacher's lunch room, etc). One thing he also did was on the first day. He told the students that now there are 2 teachers in the classroom, so that when I am speaking, they would behave well and have to listen to me. He really made me feel comfortable and important.

    He also gave me very positive and useful feedback when I taught in front of the class. He would ask me beforehand what I wanted him to watch for. I learned so very much from him. He gave so much of himself. I always felt comfortable asking him questions and he always had time for me.

    I am happy that you want to do your best with your student teacher. I can imagine that it's a difficult task with tremendous responsibility. I thank you on behalf of student teachers !!!
