A wo“​ an beginning a second career as a teacher struggles during her student teaching experience with how to  deal with her cooperating teacher who treats her badly.”    Jennifer Gordon:  - Completing the 2nd half of her student teaching, previously taught a wonderful 3rd  Grade class.  Martha Williams:  -  Kindergarten teacher, Art background    When Jennifer gets there, Martha immediately tells Jennifer she needs to be at the  school no later than 8:15. Jennifer has two small kids and her sitter doesn't arrive until 8am.  She tries to inform Martha she can’t be there until 8:30. The school doesn’t open until then  anyways. Martha emphasizes that if Jennifer was a teacher she wouldn’t be late to her own  class, but 8:30 isn’t late, as the bell doesn't ring until 8:50    The day proceeds and at the end Jennifer chats with a student’s mom. Martha  chastises her for talking to a parent and tells her she thinks it’s inappropriate for Jennifer to  talk to parents because she “barely knows them (the kids) and might say the wrong thing.”  She emphasizes Jennifer shouldn’t speak to them at all.    By halfway through Jennifer’s teaching assignment she had learned very little about  Martha personally, but plenty about teaching. Martha is still very distant & terse with her. She  doesn't let Jennifer do anything really. Jennifer talks to her supervisor who suggests she swich  classes, but Jennifer is determined to stick it out.    When addressing a child who doesn’t feel well, Martha publicly calls her out & says the  child is only doing it for attention. Jennifer needs a good performance evaluation, but it was  becoming increasingly difficult for her to continue working with Martha.    On the Monday of Jennifer’s last week, she has to give a presentation to the class on  Eastern Europe - a subject she’s sure Martha picked to sabotage her. Martha’s treatment of  Jennifer has her exhausted, and she finally resolves to talk to Martha about an event that  happened on Friday.     Some of Jennifer’s old students stopped by the classroom, and Martha again publicly  humiliates her by calling her out in front of the class. Jennifer tries to speak with Martha about  the incident, but Martha won’t have a conversation. She cuts Jennifer off and tries to move on.  Jennifer asks if Martha would not call her out in front of the kinds, and martha tells her if she’s  unhappy in her classroom, the door is right over there.
