First InternshipSo I feel like the title tells it all. I am currently in my first internship in a middle school science class room. i teach six classes of 7th grade and one class of 8th grade. The best way i can explain this experience is overwhelming. I am only there two days a week and i have 130 students and a good chunk of them have behavioral issues or dont speak english or home issues and i just dont know how to adress it all. And to top it off Im not the most assertive person in the world and am having a horrible time managing the classroom. To be completely honest some of my kids scare me. My first period class is a behavioral support class. Almost everyone of those kids have a learning IEP or a behavoral plan. Its crazy!!!!
So anyone have any advice?????
