I'm currently two weeks into my complementary placement and I'm really struggling with the whole course... and have been feeling like this since mid-November. My main school, the uni and my complementary school know the situation but I'm not sure they know just how bad it is. A lot of the time in the classroom I'm just not enjoying it - having to put up with obnoxious, chavvy kids really wears me down and I'm increasingly finding it hard to come up with engaging, educating activities - that whole edutainment thing. My lack of creativity was criticised at my main school, along with my behaviour management and my ability to motivate kids. All of which were absolutely valid. I've tried being more assertive with the kids but just end up angry and hating it more. Every day seems like a battle just to get through and I'm also falling behind with the work for uni - no idea what my master's assignment is going to be on. I don't think I have the right attributes (creativity, optimism, resilience, assertiveness) for teaching and I just feel that I've made a really bad decision in taking this course. Is anyone else feeling quite this bad?
