Expectations going from student to teacher?

I'm a student currently studying to become a teacher in the next upcoming years. I was wondering what it's like actually making the transition from being the student and learning how to teach to actually teaching in the classroom on your own. Do you have any advice? Thanks in advance!

learning to ride a tricycle (student teacher) to riding a motorcycle (own classroom). There's a gulf of knowledge and skill that you need to fill in for yourself.
Good luck.

Volunteer in some classroom with the same teacher everyday. It'll give you a taste of what it is really like.

I would tell you to sub, but that's a different ballpark that requires a different set of skills and classroom management.

Every experience is different and subjective

Like my title says, it is different for everyone. The success rate of your first year teaching experience will depend on your personal expectations and believes about education. Try to get as much hands-on experience as possible. Very important, hone your classroom management skills; if you do not have any, yo will suffer greatly. Universally, the first year is usually the worst for many teachers. Finally, like my college professor said years ago, many teachers quit teaching within first five years. Sorry I am being a bit pessimistic, but I want to give you all the facts. However, here are some pointers:
1. Be creative! Make your lessons fun, engaging, and, of course, rigorous!
2. Be able to differentiate! Chances are you will have students with disabilities and language learners in your classroom.
3. Be flexible. That means, be ready to adjust your lessons, routines, expectations based on the things that happen in your school and your classroom.
4. Finally, be professional. Be proactive. Get involved in your school's community. Be seen! If you are an expert in whatever, like Second Language Acquisition, you can run a study group. If you speak a foreign language, like Spanish, assist teachers in translating documents, like home letters and such.You may also organize some clubs students and their parents can attend.

I hope it helps!
