Student Teaching

Thursday, August 8, 2013

Today I’m linking up with The Polished Teacher for a Student Teaching experiences linky event.  

I had a wonderful student teaching experience.  My collaborating teacher was wonderful and taught me a lot about classroom management, having a smoothly running classroom, dealing with parents, and keeping organized.  She even threw an “End of Student Teaching” party for me on my last day at school.  She had sent a secret note home to parents and all of them sent in small gifts (ok, some sent in VERY generous gifts) for me to open at the party and then all of the kids and I made root beer floats.  The principal even came!

This year, I’ll be hosting a student teacher for the first time.  I figured – “I’ve been doing this for nearly a decade, I suppose it’s time to host a student teacher.”  I’m very excited – even more so after meeting her last week – but a little nervous.  If any of you have hosted a student teacher and have tips to share, I’d love to hear them!

Also be sure to head to The Polished Teacher to share your experiences and read about others’ experiences!

How sweet that you were thrown an end of student teaching party! Sounds like you had a great experience! I'm looking forward to learning all that I can about classroom management! I am already thinking about how hard it will be to say goodbye! Yikes! Thanks for linking up!
