This should be interesting

My department head approached me today and asked if I would take a student teacher for 6 weeks in February and March. I was immediately flattered by it, especially since I have only been teaching about three years. Otherwise I have mixed feelings about it. Basically, if the intern turns out to be good, well I think it's a good idea. And if the intern turns out to be bad, well then it was a bad idea. Either way, I guess I am attracted to the idea of leaving a mark in a different way. I shape students every day, but this is an opportunity to touch students I might never meet.
