As I was at the conference, I was talkig with some of the teachers about classroom management. Some of the storis they told were very amusing and I'm glad they were able to laugh about it. However, it makes me so nervus to begin field. As of right now I don't feel ready to teach! I'm hoping being in block next semester will really help. Older kids can sometime have attitudes, and they can definitely bring them out during class time. Now, I 've had to manage rooms full of people before and it has its challenges, but I think a classroom is going to be different. It has the same people everyday and they are going toget tired of being there, get distracted, and other things. This is one of my biggest fears about teaching. What if my classroom isn't controlled?! So I started looking online for advice. There are so many articles online and blogs that teachers keep on this kind of informaton. It made me feel a little better. But i think the best resource we have is our professors. I spent some time discussing this with one of my professors and I already feel better about this. I'm still nervous for field, and even more nervous to student teach. But I have a semester to prepare! So good luck to all those others out there who are getting ready for field or stuent teaching as well!
