Video taping is done, which is a HUGE relief. And a month has managed to slip by somehow. I’m starting to realize that I really lucked out in a lot of ways. The supervisor I have is great. He’s supportive, open to ideas, and understanding about the learning curves of new teachers. He really makes it seem like it is about my learning and he doesn’t make it seem like he’s inspecting a car or some other non-human object when he does his observations, which for me is huge.
My cooperating teacher is beyond supportive, very open to different things, and actually enjoys her students (which isn’t always the case I’ve found).
If I can get through this month as strongly and successfully as I got through the last one, than I should be o.k.
