I would continue working on what you are told to work on and yes, "fake it till you make it" is good advice. I would consider that you can find a school that is a good fit for you.

I am a very "even keel" person. Depending on the school culture, that is either a great positive or a big negative. On the negative side, yes this could be described as "unenthusiastic." In 2 of the 3 schools I've worked in, I've been consistently praised for being calm and structured and been rated "exemplary" for my classroom environment. My previous P at my current school even told me that my calm demeanor helped her personally on a daily basis.

In the other school I worked in, my P HATED my demeanor and used very negative words to describe me. That school was a dumpster fire for a lot of reasons that I won't go into, but I was happy to get out of it. It's just very interesting that the thing that has been perceived as a great strength in some schools was seen as a huge weakness in this one.
