My first goal is to always conduct myself as a professional. This is very important to me as a future teacher because of my height, being five feet nothing I know that it is more difficult for me to command the respect needed by a teacher. With my past experience as an assistant teacher at Globe Theatre it was much more relaxed, the kids calling us by first names and being more like a friend to them, but I know that this will lead to problems when I am in charge of my own classroom.
– Incorporate the method of getting their attention that their teacher uses.
– Communicate with students in a way that shoes them that I am their teacher and not their friend.
– Dress professionally every class.
-Discuss with Co-op how she feels I have done with these steps during our post conference as well as taking note of how the students act when they are talking with me.
