Please reply if there is anyone going through the same thing as what I am about to explain. I'm really depressed and losing all self confidence in my teaching - am getting to the point where I'm seriously considering giving up. I am currently in my main placement, half way through, and am going through bad observation after bad observation. The comments are always the same, my behaviour and class management, relationships and expectations of the children, and resource management are all good to very good but when it comes to my lessons there is something that always drags my mark down. I was told today by my mentor/class teacher that I'm boardering on a cause for concern because during observed lessons something always goes wrong. Common comments are that I didn't stick to my timings, my objectives are confused and plans are not effective in considering all possibilities. If anyone has any advice please please please help me, I'm really struggling to improve. Seems like no matter how hard I try I can't make these changes successfully. Thanks so much!
