I consider being a student teacher one of the most fulfilling and challenging task I have ever been into. Looking back, I realize that teaching doesn't only enable the teacher to convey his or her knowledge and skill to his or her students but in fact, teaching is a two way process where students also play an active role of educating their mentors the more important lessons in life.
My role as a student teacher exposes me to 26 sophomores each with different personalities, intellectual level, ideals, and communication techniques. From this diverse population, I have painstakingly learned to accept an individual the way he or she is. At first, I am really impressed by the intellectual excellence of some of my students while I loathe the slow-learners. In a classroom, it is inevitable to encounter students who, due to their lack of interest, motivation or perseverance, find it very hard to grasp the topic being discussed. However, these slow- learners teach me how to make the lessons more interesting and how to give much-needed encouragement.
