Sara: I had to reply to you. Remember only those who do nothing never
fail! Yes, you will have some lessons that "bomb," some days when nothing
seems to go right, but keep a positive attitude and the next day is a new
beginning. Overplan in the beginning if possible and expect the
unexpected. I have a student teacher now and I tell her the same things
and she is doing a great job. Be yourself and do not try to model yourself
after some ideal or some other person. Be fair and respect the students
and in the long run, you will have a good experience.
