I am describing my junior year with the word tutorial because I look at it as a lesson that I did not have to study for, I just had to be ready to deal with anything harsh that was to ever be thrown at me or into my direction. From my junior year, I remember so many things such as being kicked out of my first high school and attending my second semester of my junior year at Euclid High School, making good grades, having a few friends with many laughs, trying to participate in events that the school would hold so that I could be more involved with the school staff as well the student body, helping out with the yearbook class, and having conversations, that will remain unforgettable, with the adults of Villa Angela- St. Joseph High
In 7B, I asked them to give input and students who can keep silent and be active, in positive ways, gave me input to be more strict and controlled the class well. I realize my weaknesses in classroom management and I try to improve it. Paul wrote in his letter to Timothy “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” (1 Timothy 4:12, NIV). I know that I am still young and sometimes I cannot give the image of teacher to students perfectly. However, I need to be a role model for my students so that they can see Jesus in
The thing was, I had switched my major a few times, resulting in me being two quarters behind to declare. My advisors gave me a deadline to declare by the end of last quarter and they said that if I can’t declare by the end of last quarter, I would then had to switch to an alternative major. And that was terrifying for me. I mean, I was only two classes away from declaring..I had worked so hard to get to where I was, so of course I did not want to switch major
From the physical needs that are essential for a teacher to the motivation and passion to pursue teaching. As stated in Crowe’s Book Hands on Deck “Never take criticism as something that will bring you down; take it as a motivation to improve your performance” The student teaching program was like a window of unnoticed thoughts and actions, it makes you realize that you have been doing something wrong from the start. However, it also shows you things that you are strong about. It’s all about strength and weaknesses. It is comprised with the reality of things that you need to improve and those that you need the change.
Negative aspects of the internship experience Overall, I had a very positive internship experience. While I gained knowledge from each experience, I believe the synergy sessions and switch site internship could have been scheduled differently. Often, I missed out on valuable lessons due to the lack of follow up on day-to-day operations. For example, if a situation took place on Wednesday, I wasn’t there to follow through on Thursday with the parent/guardian. I also felt that while the switch experience was very valuable, it would have been nice to have more time at my internship school before leaving for a few weeks.
I feel like I have learned a lot for Patrice in this semester. He has tough me how to be a better public speaker by being a good listener and telling the class to be a good audience, I also learned how to be a better student Patrice is a good teacher he teaches us that to be a good student the teacher has to teach with tough love. He tells us the truth he came up to me the first week of class after I gave him the first reflection paper I thought I was done and I did a good job. After I got the paper bake he asked me “can I see you after class” he was very upfront with me he gave me a second chance to fix my mistakes he told me I could do better. I also advocated for myself I failed my midterm, and I told him everything and even asked for extra credit opportunity he gave me the hard truth another example of tough love was when he asked me “what you would do in this sitchwation you become the teacher,” I told him what I would do he said I was being to hard on my self he told me to do my homework study harder and go to the extra credit opportunity.
The day I graduated was a special day for me. I just remembered everything I’ve been through and how I overcame it. I even told myself that I never thought I would make it this far. A lot of memories came back to me. I remembered when I was bullied in elementary school, when I flunked fourth grade, when I found out I had a learning disability, when I entered special ed programs, when I started being successful, when I only had special ed classes, when I decided to challenge myself more into moving to higher level class, when entered soccer team, and choir.
1 Lessons from the classroom. Essay #3: Lessons from the Classroom. It has been a long rough month for me, but oh well such is life. Throughout this month I have had to relearn to do many things I thought I would never have to do again like public speaking, even though I feel comfortable speaking to crowds and groups, teaching a crowd or group of people is a whole other animal by itself. Out of everything I have learned this month I think the most important thing was to never go teach a class without having a lesson plan.
“The beginnings are sometimes scary, endings are usually sad, but it’s the middle that counts most” That is true for a lot of things in everyday life, like starting school. Many young people see going to school as a chore and only go because they absolutely have to, while some will even skip school because they see it as boring and unnecessary. However, going to school is incredibly important for your career, future education, social and communication skills. When I first got to high school everything was strange, scary and new, for the first time there were new people to meet as well as new teachers. There was now also a lot more work and homework.
I’m little bits nervous at first but then I can manage to control it. By listening to my mentor, I need to teach in the faster pace but students also need to understand what they have learnt due to we were compulsory completing syllabus before final examination begins. Students in this class have poor basic content knowledge. Because of that, I need to teach one-by-one for each group. I’m only successful to cover one subtopic for today’s session.
