I am about to embark on a new adventure...a student teacher. He is one year younger than I am, so I feel a little more out of my element since they are not as young as the "normal" student teacher. I also know of him from high school, but wasn't friends with him back then. (And for all of those of you who know I am single, he's married.)
I don't know why I am feeling inadequate lately with my teaching, but I am. Knowing I am going to have a student teacher is making me second-guess whether or not I am qualified to have one.
In a classroom that is primarily workshop oriented, I am a little hesitant to hand over everything. What advice do you give to a control freak? What advice do you give to a teacher who has never had a student teacher?
Thanks in advance!
