Well, I'm all done with my first day of student teaching. Today I just had to watch, observe, and interact with students. Only one thing to say: THEY ARE CRAZY
Students don't know how to respect teachers and it's sad to watch a teacher with 20+ years of experience not be able to get respect from his classes.
A sign of how the day went...the first thing my cooperating teacher said to me after classes were over was:
"Well, that's a day in the life of a teacher...Are you coming back tomorrow?"
Of course I responded with chuckle, and then a somewhat weary "yeeesss?"
Sure I'll be back for another dose of these crazy 7th graders, but they're not going to know what hit them when I start teaching (next week?) and their teacher can be disciplining them...simultaneously!!! :D HAHA!
That's all for now...time to finish my glass of wine, pack my bag and lunch for tomorrow, then SLEEP!!!!
