Student teaching is a time where you get to practice your skills, make professional connections, and learn invaluable lessons that will help you become a great teacher. It is also a time where you have to use every skill that you learned in your college courses. Plus: earn the respect of your students and be able to manage them, be on your best behavior at all times, all while showcasing your best qualities. Sound scary? It may sound a bit overwhelming, but if you know what to expect then it can be an opportunity of a lifetime.
