Trying to get pupils motivated into doing work after they have had a 3 day break is very difficult - trying to get myself motivated is an even bigger job!!!!! That is not strictly true, the 2 day holiday I had was spent preparing for my crit, doing research for my essay and some cleaning. Therefore I was productive.
Seriously, Life as a student is very busy indeed. They expect you to prepare for your classess, make presentations up, complete a portfolio AND write an essay all in such a short space of time. Its crazy.
Yesterday was Valentine's day, and I hate valentines day. When is there going to be a student teachers' day?????? Where all the pupils bring in gifts to their student teachers.
I nominate..........21st January.
