To evaluate and to be evaluated

To evaluate
It's harder than I thought. We had this guideline that goes on forever, it's hard to evaluate while our peers are doing the microteaching, and it's even harder to to do it after they are done because we would have forgotten half of what they were teaching. I now have a profound respect for lecturers who evaluate their students during the practical. It's indeed hard to keep up.

To be evaluated
When all eyes are on you, judging you and waiting for you to screw up, while you are doing your microteaching, you can't help but feeling nervous although you are of high confidence. On the other hand, knowing that you're evaluated pushes you to the max to do your best - not giving anyone a chance to see your flaws. I'd accept to be evaluated any time.

Evaluating-first question poped up-what to write?
It happens though-a lot. Most of the time I'm evaluating others, my brain paralyzed! I don't know what to write and how to comment. If you ask me to speak, I could, but write it down... I surrender.
I agree with you. Those who will supervising our teaching is deserve to have a salute!

Hello Amanda, it's not who you are that holds you back, rather it's who you think you're not.

Once you become self-conscious, there is no end to it; once you start to doubt, there is no room for anything else.

Have the confidence to take your steps towards your future, let the sun be in your face and the wind behind your back to carry you aloft to dance with the stars.

You can do it. Lee.
