We all start out learning the building blocks of reading and writing in school, with the goal of all being at the same level by high school graduation, but for many of us this is not true. Many people face obstacles throughout their time of being in school. This was true in my case. My experience learning to read and write has been an up and down roller coaster since kindergarten. My reading and writing skills have developed from learning my ABC’s to being able to construct a full essay.
During my four years in college, I learned all of the best teaching strategies, how to write effective lesson plans, and learned about behavior management strategies. It was not something I questioned; you just simply follow the lead of the instructors and the clinical instructors I was placed to work with. When I finally got to that amazing, yet frightening first day, I dreamt of those twenty-five smiling second grade students sitting completely still and eager to learn. Then the students actually came into my classroom. Much to my surprise, there were students that exhibited disruptive behavior.
We headed back to our homegroup and stayed there until we needed to go to our forth lesson at 12 pm. Our fourth lesson was Japanese, it was quite enjoyable because the Japanese teacher Ms Yonehara is very funny. After Japanese was lunchtime, at lunch my friends and I once again met up and talked until deciding to go to the library. In the library, we borrowed books, talked and read our books. After lunch, our final subjects of the day were PE and English.
it was also noticed that all the students were seated in their own seats and they were ready with their books on the table except for 1 or 2. I also noticed that few subject related charts were put up in the bulletin board. Tr1 then writes the date, name of the subject as well as the name of the topic that Tr1 was going to teach the class was noticed clearly. Tr1 started the class by doing a small prelinary (recap) of what was taught in her last class which was based on “living and non- living things.’’ Activity: making a collage based on living and non – living things Instruction –collage making for living things An outline of a living thing say for e.g. duck was given to the students, were the students was asked to stick the images of all the living things that they have brought inside the outline of the picture that was given to them.
I was met by a warm, welcoming face that led me to the seat at the center.It was an assurance for me, a strength to take on the journey that has only begun. A lot of years had passed, yet the memory of my very first day at school is still vivid. Today, I look back on that experience as one of the best of my life. If without for my teachers who guided me, I would have not reach the fullest extent of my potentials. Grasha, A.
Academic Accomplishment A great academic accomplishment to for me in high school was passing the AP U.S. History exam during my junior year. I am proud of this achievement because I was one of the only for out of about 35 kids that passed the exam. I studied very hard two months before the test and I am glad to say that it really payed off. Passing the exam also, in a way, gave me confidence because I thought I had no chance in passing the exam. Since only four people passed the exam, we got the chance to see the well-known musical “Hamilton”.
Day 1 It was our first day in MINHS-SWA; we went to school early to talk to the Teacher-in-charge, Ms. Marites Magpantay for our endorsement as practice teachers. We were accompanied by Ms. Ethel Angcaya. My classmate and I were very excited this day. While waiting, we took pictures, exchanging ideas about practice teaching, and hoping for a better result. We will be rendering 520 hrs as practice teachers.
It was only my first day at Madison South Elementary and I learned so much! After meeting my teacher, Mrs. Mikelait, she answered a lot of questions about the students, the school, her classroom, and some of her instructional methods. I was very happy with the class size of 18 students. There is an equal ratio of nine boys to nine girls. The students are very diverse in their backgrounds and learning.
What form of assessments are being used? Utilize the NC Teacher Evaluation Standards as your guide. I visited a first grade classroom for my walkthrough. The teacher was teaching sequential order using measurements of length for the math lesson. The students were not all fully engaged into the lesson that she was teaching.
This of course slightly skewed the research but creating rigorous courses does help to foster a sense of family. It does it in a “we’re all in this together” sort of way which brings me to my next point. Single-sex schools create a sense of brotherhood or sisterhood that, outside of an actual family, can only be found in fraternities or sororities at universities. I spent my high school career in an all-male high school and it was one of the best choices I could have ever made. I went into high school knowing only a few people but within a couple of weeks, I got to know just about everyone.
