Day 20: What are your concerns/questions/fears about observing in the elementary schools? Be honest!
As much as I enjoy being creative and having fun with my students, I'm worried that I may struggle to help the students with what they're learning. I've dedicated hours of my summer teaching students, but rather than teaching students how to read or write, I taught them how to swim. This worries me, for I'm afraid I'm not going to know the best approaches to help students understand the material. I know we won't be addressing students in a large group, but I'm concerned that when students ask me questions I won't be able to explain it in a way that will make sense to them. I'm sure in my head it will make sense to me, but they may end up walking away more distraught then when they came to me.
