Learning to be a Teacher

Today I supervised a group of my  student teachers presenting lessons to small groups of children in preparation for teaching a whole class.  These student teachers  had never worked in inner city schools before.  As a result, a lengthy discussion ensued about the nature of the children at the school and what they needed.  I was both impressed and touched by the depth of caring and desire to improve their skills to reach the children in their classes.  I left the school feeling very reassured and hopeful about the future of education.  quote
