I am just completing student teaching in a middle school. I am an elementary and early childhood major. My cooperating teacher, supervisor, and myself feel that I would do much better in the younger grades. I feel that I did a terrible job during the past couple of months. I wasn't able to manage class time to fit in homework time, I had trouble with classroom management, and I always wanted to do too many activities in one class period. I feel like a failure. I feel miserable. My final reviews have more needed improvement areas than positive remarks. What do I do? Does anyone else feel this way? I feel that I was placed in such a high grade and it was a shock. Changing classes and the teaching styles were mainly direct instruction and I feel more comfortable teaching hands-on. I tried teaching hands-on but that didn't work because the kids weren't used to it. I just feel terrible. Please help me, tell me the truth, will these reviews hurt me? I just can't get over how bad of a job I did. I tried to do what my cooperating teacher wanted me to do, and I still feel that I didn't reach that.
