Very well. It may be impossible to foresee every challenge a teacher will encounter, but I had the experience and resources to respond to students' diverse needs and adapt to new demands.

Fairly. I was somewhat prepared for the classroom, but I had a steep learning curve. I struggled to handle all the demands on me and meet my students' varied needs. The first couple of years could have gone more smoothly if I'd had better preparation.

Poorly. What I studied in my preparation program had little relevance to the real demands of teaching. I felt unsuccessful as a teacher during my first year or two, and my students may have suffered as a result of my inexperience.
