Feedback from practice

„I really have learned a great many things from my mentor, especially this semester in regard to classroom management as we had to deal with an issue of cyber bullying. As a result, I was able to work with other professionals in my school to resolve this issue and deal with the children involved and be a part of the discussion regarding internet usage in our school.“

Lucy, student of PRACTICE TEACHING ASSISTANT in Spring semester 2023

„I gained both professional and personal value from this training. Firstly, professionally was working with different age groups and being able to form lessons plans and adapt them according to the needs of each group as well as see the progress of the students through the semester. Secondly, personally I was able to connect with the teachers and the students and form some strong bonds and earn each other’s trust.“
