Ideally, as you transition the class back to your Cooperating teacher, you should schedule some time the last two weeks of your program to observe in other classrooms at your school site. I suggest seeking out classrooms that have excellent reputations, and also some that do not. This offers a good compare and contrast of strategies and environments that work well, and those that do not.

You are Nearly Done! This is the time to re-check the To Do list and make sure you are on target for getting your credential. I also suggest putting in requests for Letters of Reference/Recommendation from site Admin. and your Cooperating or Mentor teacher, if you have not done so already. You will email me your scanned Time Log when you complete your required days of placement. Remember to check your Taskstream account for the expiration date and keep it open until your Time Log is posted at the end of your placement.
*You may want to export your work and evals from Taskstream to save. Your evaluation comments and self-reflections are a good resource to build into your resume and employment portfolio; articulating your teaching skills and professional strengths.
**As long as you have the links to the Google folders I shared with you, you may still access them. You can also save the Google docs to your own folders.***You can join our San Diego Facebook group for continued ongoing education and teaching resources.
P.S. You may continue to receive Weekly Reflections&Resources from me for a few weeks as students are on different cohort schedules.
