I know the students will miss her as she goes on her way, but at the same time, we hope she has learned as much from us. The purpose of the teacher-candidate (student-teacher) program is to provide a clinical experience in which the student practices her profession with real students under the supervision of a cooperating teacher. Miss Fitzgerald has given her best efforts to lead our class while simultaneously following the leads of the people around her - other teachers and administrators with similar goals. I am certain that every part of our experience together probably wasn't what she anticipated, but I hope the less desirable parts were few, short, and far between.
Miss Fitzgerald graduates from MSSU, this Saturday, and we wish her the best in her future endeavors. Tomorrow (Thursday) will be her last official day in our classroom.
