And Mark, looking forward to a 9-week practicum teaching assignment that could conceivably have been limited to the single subject of physical education said: “I hope my supervising teacher teaches something in addition to phys ed.”
Whereupon Mark, who got the news of his assignment, was somewhat surprised to find that his supervising teacher is teaching phys ed, plus biology, plus science, plus physics, plus social studies, all at the high school level.
So Mark, who is rather underconfident in his ability to teach biology, and science, and physics is now anticipating long evenings of class prep as a means of being one step ahead of the students he will be learning how to teach during this stressful time.
Could this be evidence of hope in action?
