Also, lessons from student teaching

We left this out of our methods courses.  This may sound like a given, but I think that my mindset could have been better focused to this transition into student teaching:

Never choose a group of students over another.

I caught myself almost trying to make an excuse that I chose to prep for one class over another… and I realized the disaster in that thought track early on, thankfully.  Now, on top of my two most-used folders for planning the rest of my student teaching experience I have this as a reminder:

Never excuses.

(And when I see that, I think, in an Ahhnold! voice: Stop Whining!)
