I'm currently a student teacher and I'm spending another night crying my eyes out. I've failed an essay and didn't do very well in my first observation, but I've been told to "Keep going" and "Honestly it gets better, you have the qualities to be a great teacher it just takes time!" So my question is, how much time? How many agonising days wondering if I'm ever going to be good enough? I really like the pupils and I want to improve, but I just want to know if it is all worth it?
