I am a pre-service teacher who will be student teaching starting in January. I taught a mini-lesson on Friday while being observed by my supervisor, and was actually told I need to smile more. I honestly did not realize, until I was given that feedback, that smiling was so important. I had never heard of no smiling until November before, and I definitely won’t follow it as a teacher.
