Student Teaching

25 Things I Learned From Student Teaching

It ended about a month ago, but everything about it is resonating in my head. The students, the teachers, the parents, the failed lessons, the joyous lessons, and the lessons I learned. As I’m about to face countless interviews (mock and real), I’m going to have to answer the questions that seem so obviously answerable to me, but for some reason are the hardest to articulate in a neat little response: “What’s your philosophy of education?” “Tell me about yourself.” “What’s your biggest strength? Weakness?”

“Why do you want to be a teacher?”  

I’m not so sure I can safely say my current answers to those questions are concise, understandable, or outstanding, but this list should get me started.
