One week before started teaching at Cipaganti Elementary, my friends and I did an observation there. We sat at the back of the class and watched the teacher delivering the lesson. At one point, one of my friends was asked to pronounce some words in front of the class for the students to repeat. She accidentally pronounced ninth as [neenth] instead of [nahynth] and the students all followed her.

This is the kind of mistake that I'm afraid I would do when teaching them.

She said she would fix it when she got her chance to teach the class, though. Her turn is this coming Wednesday. Mine is next week. It's getting closer and closer. I'm really nervous.
