  2. So true, there are a lot of things we don't get about teaching in college. That could be a whole course in college couldn't it?

  4. I WISH that I had learned about how to differentiate like a pro. Also about the different and BEST ways to sort paperwork. AND about classroom management techniques that REALLY work. All of that would have been GREAT in the beginning!

  5. In college they told us we may have one student not on grade level. They didn't tell us or prepare us for the fact that you could wind up with kids on all different levels. My first job was teaching third grade and I had kids on kindergarten level all the way through a fourth grade level. I was NOT prepared for that!

  6. I took up elementary education in college. Grades K-6 is a huge category to cover in a four year college program. I now know just how much difference there is between Kindergarten and 6th grade! My biggest thing that I wish they would have given more time to than just one course is reading, it is so fundamental and one course was not nearly enough to prepare me.

  7. I wish they had spent more time discussing Differentiated Instruction. I also wish I had learned more about Urban education.
