Hi all, I am at my first placement of Secondary English PGCE. My mentor is very rude also she knows the pupils from primary. Today i had an observed lesson and after a while the HoD came to observe me as well. The HoD is a very bad observer she huffs and puffs amd sighs and shakes her head at everything i was saying. Then the pupils clocked on i was being observed and one of the pupils just kept asking on questions and not listening so i said to him "did u not listen what i said 2 mins ago, please listen" and that ****** my mentor off in the classroom she went and apologised to the pupil on my behalf destroying my credibility abd then ripped into me after the lesson sje was deeply personally offended with the way i spoke to him they are her children i m a guest in HER school i should watch the way i speak because they are HER children she thinks of them as her own and should stay in line. Also premier pathway trainees are training in the school as well and they alwats come up and ask how the lesson went and i say it went okay or alright. And they report it back to my mentor who thinks that i think i m a great teacher. She was like do u think u are a good teacher? My colleagues are not lying they come and tell me. I get so nervous in her lessons now cuz i never know what might set her off. She doesnt respect me doesnt talk to me properly. Doesnt get back to me about lesson plans with 4 weeka left till christmas i m starting to break.
