Pretty easy, overall.
I learned a lot thus far. I learned about the diversity in the students I will interact with and how to handle different situations. My field experience is in a city school, and thanks to this class, I know the best ways to work with these students. I was able to use what I used in this class in an actual school setting, so I know what I am learning is important.. Dr. Sheahan is wonderful and genuinely believes that the student comes first, which is an ethical belief that I support fully.
I learned that there can be any variety of tricky moral dilemmas that a teacher could face in the classroom, and thanks to the analysis of how we could act on split-second decisions, I feel much more prepared to enter a classroom.

Advice for students:
Read the books; you will be surprised at what you will learn. Be prepared to speak in class, because, as future teachers, we should be comfortable talking in front of a group of students.
