For our student teaching localement I really lucked out. I went to a school that is right near our hometown. I only have to drive around twenty minutes to get to our school, however my mentor isn’t the greatest however the youngsters are sweet and I prefer the classroom. I am someone who is always freezing and the classroom sits right by the boiler system! We are the first space to get heating when it turns on! Schools are notorious for being cheap when it comes to Heating, Ventilation, and A/C! The furnace turns on quite late and turns off even earlier; However, due to classroom localement I hardly believe cold. I have to arrive earlier than the youngsters and the room is freezing, by the time the buses arrive and the youngsters show up, the furnace is going full blast. I absolutely can wear skirts, loose blouses and lightweight pants during the Winter time season. I even chose a dress with tights 1 morning. My classroom mentor easily is going through menopause though. She bitterly complains about the heating and wants to open a window. I am so thankful that both of us are in a snowy area, however you can’t open a window and not expect snow to come inside the classroom. It also would be extremely wasteful of the boiler system. It would cost the school currency to give heating that she literally lets out the window. So I am grateful that our classroom mentor isn’t wasting taxpayers dollars doing that. Most of the time she just leaves the classroom and I do all the teaching. It odors because I don’t get paid however I do enjoy having the freedom to do what I want.
