Placement, it’s here. Oh my goodness, I do not feel one bit ready.
After always being one of the last to find a placement this time, I found out really early and I think it’s made me so much more nervous.
4th time lucky, right? So far I’ve had a great run with placements and had some incredible mentors, however, I was told prior to my first placement that everyone has one placement that doesn’t go 100% no not even 50% to plan, that you have a horrible mentor and dread every minute of it. I haven’t had that one yet and each time gets me nervous that this one will be it. Will it? Hopefully not. I honestly feel like I’m going on my first ever placement.
I honestly feel like I’m going on my first ever placement all over again. It’s in a special school, and they run differently to mainstream schools even in the special education programs (each of those run differently too). This time I am with the same kids ALL DAY! Just like primary teachers. I don’t even know how I’m going to use ICT, or what I’ll be teaching.
I hope everyone else is less stressed than I am. We’re on the homestretch for the semester, we can do it!
