I just found out my placement for my student teaching next semester, and I’m excited that I’ll be getting to work with the teacher that I was hoping for!
However, the school wants three things from me: (1) resume, (2) teaching philosophy statement, and (3) a biography.
The first two make sense to me—but the biography confuses me a little. Do they want my life story (unlikely), or a just a short blurb?
I’m going to go check with my advisor to find out, but I’m curious to know from anyone else who has or is student teaching if this is pretty common?
