She called me by phone after school started, however, she should have
contacted me in some manner PRIOR to the beginning of school. At this time,
observation of the opening of school is not mandatory by my principal, but
it should be and may be next year.
I do feel that there should be some contact before school starts and a
telephone call is good.
Our student teachers are supposed to bring a written autobiography with them
on their first day and this is helpful. Some time together BEFORE the
students arrive is good, because it does give you a chance to meet each
other and have some time to talk. That's why it's a good idea to visit the
school during the work days, prior to opening of school.
