Here's a little pep talk for those of you who may find yourselves in a student teaching placement where you don't get along very well with your cooperating teacher. I want to call out a few things that we should consider when building relationships with our mentor teachers.

We work through 4 strategies
1. Communication with cooperating teacher
2. Work with your college supervisor
3. Don't let others' opinions of you define who you are as a teacher
4. Recognize your feelings
