Be Yourself Don't Make The Same Mistake I Did!
Grade Level(s): K, 1-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12
Submitted by: Angela

My advice to you is to try your best to incorporate your newly learned skills about well balanced learning centers groups, etc. I stuck to the curriculumn book, fell into the round reading trap, and when the principal came to observe me she said she was disappointed that I had not formed learning centers and group activities. I had so many new ideas. I could have shown her what a great teacher I could really be! I think she got the impression I was just like her older generation of teachers, and that was not what she was looking for. So please be fresh and innovative student teachers this is what principals are looking for. I missed out on a job opportunity at that school that another student teacher has scooped up. Learn from my mistake don't be a follower... Be a LEADER!
