Interview with Mr. Callahan

What was the worst experience that you had as a student teacher?

Planning a whole lesson and it just not going as expected.

What was the best experience that you had as a student teacher?

Just realizing that you got through to a student, that they understood
something.

What are your plans for the future?

To get a job. To get my own classroom and continue doing this [teaching].

Interview with Ms. A (Ms. Alterio, technically, but she prefers to go by Ms.
A.)

What was the worst experience that you had as a student teacher?

Having a classroom full of unresponsive students. When you think you have a
great idea for a project and they just don’t respond. You feel like you let
them down more than you let yourself down.

What was the best experience that you had as a student teacher?

Having a lesson that you’re trying for the first time turn out to be a great
success and you get a lot of student work from it.

What are your plans for the future?

Hopefully to get a teaching job. Hopefully, I can find a stable job in a
good school system with kids that want to do art. (Not that the kids here
don’t). After that, hopefully I can manage to get some of my own artwork
done on the side. (Ms. A loves to design web comics and graphic novels.)
