I can't believe that the school year is almost done. University classes are over, job applications are piling up and interviews are exhausting. As much as I am enjoying my time with my student teaching assignment I am definitely ready for summer break to come. I look back to who I was when I started the program, and I feel so much different than before. I have learned so much about the different "hidden" aspects of a classroom like student dynamics, ways to use visuals, and making sure that what you are teaching is actually interesting. When the hidden things are addressed, a lot of the bigger issues like classroom management simply work out. Overall, I am mostly excited to have my own classroom and really try these techniques from the beginning. I just hope that things work out next fall!
