Ricki,
I was there 2 years ago (student teaching). Since then I have found many
things different. The first thing is play the game. If your coordinating
teacher is strict, be strict, if she is easy, be easy. This year I started my
first full time job. Everyone told me to be mean until Christmas. Probably
about 10 teachers told me that and then a teacher of high school English
said, "Love them but be firm." She meant that you make your rules and stick
by them. You can still like them and be good to them. You can care!!!! I
have been sticking to this and it works wonderfully. If they know you care
for them and are not just a person up there you will get more from them.
