Perhaps your student teacher just doesn't have a "fun, fun, fun" type of
personality. I've had twelve student teachers, all with very different
personalities and strenghths. The challenge was to try to help them see their
strenghths and use them in the classroom. There is room in teaching for a
wide variety of personality types and instructional styles. One of my most
successful student teachers was a very small, young-looking, timid person who
had the most incredible talent for really listening to students. It took a
little while for the students to get to know her, but once they did, they
never forgot her .....Good luck!
