Zwischen den Stühlen
Student teachers must discipline classes and be disciplined by their tutors. They must distribute grades while they panic before their own test lessons. And they are always both student and teacher. Some start out with idealism and passion, others for lack of alternatives, others see themselves as future professionals in solid employment. Step by step they become – willy-nilly – the representatives of a system that has shaped each of us. “To Be a Teacher” follows three very different characters on this tension-filled path.
