I think I'm having a crisis of confidence. My first two teaching practices went swimmingly, I achieved outstanding for both and loved every minute. I'm undertaking my final TP now, am around half way through, and so far I've hated it. My mentor is supportive but my class teacher is very critical, and I feel I've lost all my confidence and actually deteriorated as a teacher. My class teacher is nice, but she doesn't realise how difficult I'm finding the cricitism as she intends it to be helpful- but for example, she has stopped my lessons in front of children to advise me or take over, she tells me I'm doing things wrong but doesn't give me advice on improvement, expectsn me to do everything the way she does but sometimes that doesn't come naturally to me etc. It's difficult as the last thing I want to do is confront her about it, she's trying to help but she's never had a student before and I'm aware that she's finding it frustrating. I think she probably thinks I'm a bit incompetent now because I've lost so much confidence that I'm constantly asking for advice about every tiny decision in case I'm doing things "wrong" . I guess what I need to know is how much advice and support I can expect if I managed to secure a post for September.I feel this TP has been difficult and I haven't had the chance to experience many of the things I was hoping to, such as using APP to assess and target setting. It's also very difficult to gather evidence of how children with SEN are working because they're just taken out by support staff and the class teacher doesn't seem to know much about their IEPs herself- it's all dealt with by the TAs, which I find quite unusual. I'm really worried that I'll go in to my first job and look like a complete fool because I'll need to ask so many questions. Some things that have bothered me are: Will I need to write my own timetable or is this already done? How will I know how the school want me to record assement and targets etc, will I receive policy documentation for the school to work with? Will I have a proper induction where I can raise any issues or will it just be a matter of being thrown in the deep end on the first day? Will I have any support or guidance with ability grouping and when to do it or is it just something that will fall into place? Sorry for all the questions, I feel I've been eyed as some sort of half soaked idiot at times on my TP when I know I CAN be a competent teacher in the right environment . I thought it was a good thing to ask questions but my questions seem to be irritating the staff, who seem to think I should automatically know everything about how the school operates and how to teach.
