Earlier this week I was in one of the other classrooms (2nd grade), and there was a student teacher. She reminded me of Kristin Kreuk, as she looked mixed -- Asian/White. Don't ask me to say her name; I don't know if I can, if I even remembered it correctly. She was wearing a polo shirt(?) and a sweater, covered with a North Face fleece. Her jeans were a bit frayed, because they were too long. Tennies. She was rather slender, as well. I sometimes think that teachers have a greater propensity than members of other professions to become Uhmerican (i.e. obese).

Anyway, I was there nominally as the "supervisor" since she was the one doing the teaching, while the teacher was at a meeting. I can't say her class was more difficult than the other classes at that school, but being an observer is much different than being the one who must handle the discipline. I wonder what her thoughts on teaching in a public school were after that hour and half.

I have a post to finish on classroom management/discipline...
