Mrs. B is my cooperating teaching for my student teaching experienece. I cannot express how lucky I am to have her. She has been beyond helpful and her years of experience in teaching have helped me excel in many things already.
I’ve been in Mrs. B’s classroom since the beginning of this year. I used to only come on Wednesdays, but now, as a full time student teacher, I am here every day. Since the beginning, she has had me co- teach with her. Most of my classmates don’t have this opportunity as they spend a lot of time observing. I find myself to be extraordinarily lucky because Mrs. B has been throwing me in every day, on a different topic, since I’ve been here.
Another thing Mrs. B does that sets my experience apart from others is that she communicates so well with me. I feel like I’m constantly getting emails from her about what to expect the next day, what I need to prepare, things she found interesting or even things for me to read because she thinks they will be beneficial to me and my future and current classroom. I know I can never stop growing and learning as an educator and she reminds me of that daily.
Aside from preparing me and making sure I’m always learning, Mrs. B has been so loving towards me. She always takes the time to tell me how much she appreciates my help and stops to give me a hug at the end of the day. She’s understanding towards a bad day mood and she genuinely cares about my wellbeing, phycially and mentally. She reminds me so much of my Nana, as her personality with the students as well as myself, is so sweet and kind.
It’s safe to say that I have, by far, the greatest cooperating teacher and school placement ever and that I will be so prepared ( I hope!) for my own classroom next year! ❤
