So, I have an intern.
First, it was awkward because she watched me all the time. Her eyes just trailed me around the room. Taking notes. Freaking me out.
Then, it was annoying because she repeated everything I said during the lesson when it was her turn to teach. Verbatim. Including tone and inflection. Geez.
Next, it was actually kind-of neat to help her get better at things like classroom management and instructional methods. So that was cool.
Later, it became frustrating because she was frequently late, sent text messages to claim she was sick, and didn't turn in lesson plans. Super inconvenient. Unprofessional much?
So then, it went back to being awkward because I had to explain all of this during her midterm evaluation. This is why I took a job where the only people I boss around are seventh graders. Trying to explain faults to a person my age who should know better? Barf.
Recently, it became ridiculous when she let the kids watch a PG-13 movie while I was out of town, got caught by the vice principal, and was reprimanded by my principal and her supervisor. The result? She cried. Swore up and down she wouldn't be late or out sick or thoughtless ever again.
Good thing she was late on Monday and out sick on Tuesday.
What's the word for "I'm so over this shit?"
