Student Teaching Update

I had my second observation today and if observations aren't bad enough with just my supervisor, she brought her supervisor to observe her! Geeze, talk about NERVOUS! This morning I was really wondering if I was going to make it to my observation let alone make it through it. BUT low and behold I survived. My supervisor and her supervisor were very impressed and said I was a natural, WOW talk about a compliment. I was pretty much glowing from ear to ear for the rest of the day.
Student teaching is so much fun, I am really loving it. As of Monday I will be solo teaching for 2 straight weeks which surprisingly I am not one bit worried about. I have the most incredible Master Teacher, Michelle Cherry, who has believed in and supported me since day one. Also I love our class. Our students are wonderful. We have our talkers and our daydreamers but they are all loving kind students who enjoy learning. I have to brag a little because my math lesson today was on 0 less, 1 less and 2 less and at the end of the lesson all of our students got 100% on my quick check worksheet (earning themselves 10 minutes of around the world math facts on Monday). Also 18 students out of 24 passed their end of the week spelling test (earning themselves doughnuts for Monday Morning, YUM).
I can't believe I only have three more weeks with them before I move on =(
