THE IMPORTANCE OF PRACTICE TEACHING
When going on practice, it is common to have questions to which answers are sought. My advice is to keep a small note book handy, to jot things down which go toward providing information and answers.
As a part time person who was connected with teacher education, it is heart warming to know of the deep commitment of so many pre-service teachers to becoming our teachers’ of tomorrow.

However, that desire is prematurely truncated for far from too many graduates who after a few years feel that teaching is not dfore them. They become disillusioned, because the artefacts of accountability, push teaching to one side.
The primne focus of teachers used to be teaching. That is no longer the case. Teachers feel let down and so too, do their students.
