Evaluation Of A Field Supervisor

Decent Essays
Situation My day was planned so I thought, I was scheduled to go out with my mentor, Francis. We had a full day planned with the possibility of me making a school contact alone. My field supervisor, Stephanie and I were having our usual morning chat when we were approached by foster care worker, Ms. Williams. She wanted me to supervise some parenting time, so she could attend court. I had supervised parenting time before and I will admit it is not the most exciting thing to do. Parenting time can last up to 4 hours requiring you to sit at the room door and monitor the parent’s interactions with their children. Although it can be quite daunting, I do however understand the importance of this family time. I was immediately put on the spot and I really wanted to say no to supervising this time for her. I also did not want to be uncooperative or not a team player in the presence of my field supervisor.

Stephanie picked up that I really did not want to do it because she knows how much I enjoy going out in the field. She asked me to do her this favor and help Ms. Williams out and I did. Stephanie asked me how the supervising time went and thanked me for helping out in a time of need. I expressed to her that I was proud of myself for taking responsibility for the entire visit and managing some quite difficult parents without incidence.
