I finished my teaching practical yesterday – and…
I got straight “excellents” on my report from my supervising teacher. She tells me its the first time she’d ever given straight “excellents” in 28 years of teaching. (me proud much?)
Too bad it will still only count as a “satisfactory” in my official results … and that’s providing I can decipher the next assignment’s requirements and write something vaguely intelligent within the next 3 days.
Best not to count chickens before they hatch ….but I know I’ve got a 7 (high distinction) for my multiliteracies subject and am hoping for at least 6s in my other two subjects.
But I’m soooo tired (really – teaching is a very tiring job) and am quite miffed that the university boffins have the hide to ask for another 2 assignments the week following field placement. Don’t they know that we need to spend a week in recovery after prac?????
One more week and I’ll be a free woman … at least temporarily.
Now, can someone tell me what the “key educational issues facing teachers today” ?…. in 200 words or less…
