The professors really want you to see what it’s like to be a teacher, they don’t sugar coat it. They engulf you with exactly what is expected of you. What I really liked is that as soon as I came in they were already telling me that I needed to go observe classrooms. I didn’t think I would be entering a classroom until junior year. It was exactly what I was looking for – to dive right in and see what it’s like to be a teacher.
