My methodology and execution are becoming cleaner and easier, and I’ve been taking more time to research and prepare for each student. (Which seems to be coming a long way.) Connections from my practicum are finally starting to come to use, it’s mostly the professional and energy aspects. The latter being the hardest thing to show during practicum but for some reason is so easy now. (Perhaps that’s because I’m in a studio, I set my own curriculum, and I’m not constantly under scrutinization.)
I’ll definitely be sad to (possibly) leave this job next year, but for right now I’m just going to enjoy the experience and the learning.
