Student Teacher Observations

Discover. Play. Build.

I have had a wonderful student teacher with me this fall. Amanda is getting her ESL endorsement added to her existing certificate. I have learned so much, and hopefully Amanda has learned from me as well.

Friday was an important day: Amanda's supervisor from the university was coming to observe her. She was nervous, but she had a solid plan for the two hours that he would be observing her. Of course, one student had to leave just before the class started thus leaving one student without a partner. Looking back, this student leaving might just have been a blessing in disguise.

Everything went so WELL! Amanda was so excited! After talking with the professor, she came back and said: "I am so excited, I need to high five somebody!"  Her joy was contagious! 

So, today, I am celebrating Amanda! She has worked hard to be where she is today. She will be a great teacher in her own classroom! I am just sorry that it will no longer be with me. Amanda will be an asset to any school that will hire her!

Thank you, Amanda!


  1. Wow a two hour observation! That would make anyone nervous!

  2. This experience certainly will fuel her joy of teaching. I like that you are kind to celebrate someone else's success.

    1. It is your success too since you have been guiding and supporting her. :)

  3. Consider a high five coming from me too. :-)
