balancebunny-deactivated2012041 asked: Can you suggest some teacher blogs I should follow? - I'm one semester away from my student teaching :)
Teacher Dare Day is a successful recurring feature in the Tumblr teaching community. I wanted to suggest another possible recurring feature for us. I’m a member of a teaching fellowship cohort, and we have an online thread that members can update called “Soundbites: Highs and Lows,” where fellows post one part of their life (teaching or personal) that is making them happy and...

Teaching Tolerance: Bringing 9/11 in the Classroom... →
I was 18, almost 19 on Sept. 11, 2001. I was also doing a field experience that year in a K/1 combination classroom. The students had lots of questions, and were scared. Teaching about 9/11 at that time, and with that age group was all about making them feel safe and emphasizing treating each other kindly. A decade later, the images of that day still make me tear up. I can’t imagine...
jnrrrrrry asked: I went to a public UW school and paid full tuition while student teaching. I've never even heard of discounted tuition for student teaching. Where do they do that?
How did you manage student teaching?
Not in the “how were the kids” way, but tell us: How many credit hours did you receive? Did you still have to attend classes? What kind of hours did you put in at your placement? Did you have multiple placements? (GWALP had two in one semester). Was it a year or a semester? How did you handle your finances? How often were you evaluated? Did you have academic requirements?
katy-mylady asked: I'm currently student teaching, but in a graduate program, but I do have to pay full tuition. During my admissions interview, I was even cautioned against working during student teaching, so in my program they told us up front. That's definitely not being detail-oriented if DePaul didn't say how much work full-time classes and student teaching would be!
frsh2dth asked: Hi Team Teachers. I have a question that I need to broadcast to all teachers and student teachers; I figured this was the best place to do it. I need to know who had to pay full tuition while student teaching. I attend DePaul University and next year I will be expected to teach full time (as a student teacher) without being paid. But in addition I am expected to pay full cost tuition (outrageously...
