I Want to Be a Good Influence

I just found out on Friday that I'm going to have a student teacher this semester. I guess she starts Tuesday.

Anybody have any advice or tips for me? I'm looking for teachers who have mentored student teachers and also teachers who have recently student taught to give their 2 cents' worth. Oh, but you know, anyone can chime in!

I've had practicum students, but they are usually only there a few hours a few days a week.

I remember what made my mentor teacher so great, but that has been a while ago. I remember that she was there when I needed her and conveniently gone when it was time for me to do it alone. It's a delicate balance!
