Student teaching experiences are as different as students in public schools. To compare one experience to another is about as feasible as comparing the President of the United States to the German Chancellor; although their titles are comparable in name, their daily responsibilities are drastically different. As it is impossible to give an account of student teaching that will apply to everyone, this paper will explain my personal experiences as a Student Teacher of the German Language at Ann Arbor Pioneer High School, as well as examine the life of an individual student. To create a broad generalization is always a risk, this is a point anyone will readily concede. By examining one student in particular, one is limited by the breadth of information one can gather; however, the depth of the information gained by so doing, serves as a sturdy 'foundation for constructing a picture of the adolescent high school experience. By not focusing on the individual situation each student is in, but by delving into one individual's experiences and examining· her views of high school, a broad framework will be created, into which the experiences of the "average" high school student might "fit."
