I never thought I would feel uncomfortable in my first week of pre –service teaching because I am confident that I am equipped and trained enough to teach.
I believed I can be a good teacher with my standards.
I am ready with my lesson and materials for teaching.
I set my criteria and expectations on what and how would my teaching and my students learning should be.
I am so excited to implement my lesson to my class hoping I would teach them well and they’ll learn something from our lesson.
It tuned out that I am the one who’d learn a lesson from them.
Teaching students who are older or same as the teacher’s age become an extra challenge for me.
I feel uncomfortable for I expected to meet younger students than me.
I found their behaviors awkward for me .
It is the reality that I have to face day by day. It made me realized that it is true, age doesn’t define maturity.
To become a teacher one must be prepared and expect the unexpected in the classroom.
He should have self- control at all times.
