December 9, 2009
This experience for me has been so rewarding. It is the reason I wanted to become a teacher. I have become really close with the student I mentor and it is coming close to the end of my observations. When I first started this experience it was difficult and at times I wanted to quit. This is what teaching is about though, challenges. Challenges are obstacles that you take head on no matter how difficult because you believe you can succeed with them. Although at times I did not think I was making any progress, I was it just was not apparent at the time. In the end, I feel like my student has made incredible leaps and bounds. His attitude is very different when he comes to the program from when I first begun with him. He acts out a lot less then when I first started with him.
