  • I observed in classrooms as a presservice teacher attending UNF. I was observing a pre k class. The class was a mixed classroom meaning that a few students had developmental disablities. The teacher I was observing straight up told me that she hates her job and that pretty much every other teacher hates their job at west jax as well. She continued on to express her dicontent with the duval county school board and the principal of the school. She went on and on telling me to think long and hard about becoming a teacher because it wasnt worth it and everyday she wants to quit. It seemed like she didnt even want me in her classroom. The whole 4 hours I was there, the 4 year olds were in "centers" with abosolutly no structure. They were running around screaming and had no clue what they were doing. I didnt see the teacher teach a single subject or concept to the students.
    While the students were at lunch, I sat in on a ESE pre k class. The teacher was wonderful, however it was her paraprofessionals that bothered me. They were really lazy, and didnt seem to know how to "deal" with the children with disabilities. When I told them that I wanted to go into special education they told me I was absolutly crazy and the nobody in their right minds would CHOOSE to do that.
    I felt discouraged and I didnt learn a single thing. I feel that the teachers need to have a little faith in their students, and enjoy teaching. If they don't then maybe they should choose a different career.
