Practice-teaching ingrains the intricacies of teaching,
Teacher trainee matures through the grind.
The trainer observes the lessons meticulously,
Enjoys the well delivered lessons,
Tolerates the mediocre ones
And suffers through the others.
Some trainees appear confident,
A few others shy,
An observer gets a fair assortment.
Although the product depends
Not entirely on skills,
The pedagogy is drilled in.
Skills get honed over time and again.
Effectiveness brings forth a sense of commitment,
At the end of the exercise,
A few diamonds sparkle,
Many gems get their facets,
A few others remain uncut.
