And now I have to go to a “celebration” for all of the student teachers after my students disappointed me in every way imaginable. No one would follow. I had incentives of watching movie clips. I had reading broken down into segments and reading stragegies prepared. I had a skill to be learned. And? One of the most disappointing days that I could imagine as one of my last 3 days. My students are back to bad habits as soon as we get out of content that does not appeal to them.
I regret playing basketball twice in two days because I now have no energy to go work out and brush some of this big bummer off.
