During the school year, Marco used ongoing assessment data to tailor his lessons to his student’s needs. He would also use the knowledge he gained during his teacher preparation years such as continual progress monitoring to make adjustments. With the strategies Marco applied he was able to see progress in his students reading abilities. Next the study follow Destiny was hired to teach second grade in a high poverty school. She was faced with not having up-to-date material to use in the classroom.
Something I was repetitively told in elementary school is the importance of being a leader, and everyday I am thankful that I listened to my teachers back then. I can honestly say at the time it was just something drilled into my mind like math or reading but I did not completely understand what it really meant; however, today I can confidently say that I fully understand what it means to posses this quality. Because I demonstrate dependability and integrity in extracurricular roles, industriousness and human compassion while planning events for my current high school, and character through volunteering, I embody the quality that is leadership. To begin, I demonstrate dependablity while in the roles of the National Honors Society Vice President
By pursuing a teacher credential in mild to moderate disabilities I know I can achieve this goal because I carry a great passion for education and like to help students in need. Throughout my life I have made many friendships with individuals who have disabilities and seen the lack of support many receive in schools. Motivating me to support them in any possible way and inspiring me to became a special education teacher because I want to support them and other student’s in their education. Also, currently, being an instructional aide at an elementary school I have learned that becoming a teacher is something I would love to do every day because I get an opportunity to spend time with students, while I am teaching them and supporting them, it truly makes me happy and fulfilled to know I can make a difference in a child’s life. Pursuing my post baccalaureate education at Cal State La and continuing my program will fully prepare me to achieve my goal to become a special education teacher and become the best teacher, mentor, and supporter for my
Are you kind, helpful, encouraging? Being a Web leader can help me become more aware of these things, and make me a better person, while helping others. I will still know these kids, and when they even come to high school, and when i am a senior, I can help them as a freshman too. This program can impact my life, and everyone is nervous on the first day of school, and the teachers can only do so much. Taking them on a tour answering questions, can all make them feel less nervous.
Being in a high school means there is more than just the front desk staff, there are also teachers and counselors who specifically refer students. If no students were referred there would not be a client base to work with. Teachers and counselors know our clients the best, they can pinpoint what a student may need since they have them for a good portion of a day. Therefor it is important to have good relationships with the teachers and counselors. After all, we are all here to assist the children, success is not possible if everyone is not on the same
I didn’t realize how many students there were at my school with special needs, nor did I realize how short staffed they were for help. Within in the first week of helping out I realized how truly passionate I was to work with these students, and that it was something that I wanted to continue doing. The teacher told me I had great patience with the students and it really gave me to motivation I needed to continue working with them. Working with special needs students is not for everyone, it does take a lot of patience, and can be mentally challenging at times, but I do believe that I have what it takes to pursue on with this gift of mine and make a difference, even if it is just for one student 's life, or
Accomplishments This school was considered a one room school house, therefore, has a teacher I wore many hats. My accomplishments are the many skills, knowledge, and abilities I developed through my one year at this school. Some of the many skills and developed abilities that allowed me to appreciate and understand the importance of preparing students for the twenty-first century. As a teacher, I had to put the necessary principles and application theories into practice for effective instruction and positive behavioral supports that are beneficial to all my students. In addition, I developed and implement curriculum and instructional techniques that assess and evaluate my student’s skill performance.
Unlike middle school and high school, elementary schools usually have the kids exposed to one or two teachers throughout the day. If that teachers holds strong to their teachings, that is the result of the students’ learning. “...further research should be conducted in a large number of schools…” (Anyon). I agree with her idea of a certain relation between the social status of schools and their teachings, but there are also a lot of factors and variables that may differ from school to
I think that through hearing the ideas of others and seeing student work and progress, I was able to get more into teaching the lessons to my students and becoming the best teacher I could be. I also learned a lot about myself as a student and as a teacher through the assignments of creating and teaching literacy lessons in a classroom. I struggled initially with the phonemic awareness and phonics lessons because I have no memory of even learning these subjects in school. I was able to meet with the kindergarten teacher at the school I work for and see how she integrates literature into her classroom constantly. It was beautiful to watch students go from having no idea what the three letter word on their paper was, to sounding it out on their arm, blending it all together, and then suddenly fully understanding what it said.
A school named New Dorp High School had many kids that were low-performing students. They didn’t know how to write very well so, they had all of the teachers make writing a priority in their classes, even in physical education you had to write. The administrators really believed that this method would work and help the students tremendously. Luckily for them, it did, “the school’s success suggests that perhaps certain instructional fundamentals that schools have devalued or forgotten need to be rediscovered, updated, and reintroduced. And if that can be done correctly, traditional instruction delivered by the teachers already in classrooms may turn out to be the most powerful lever we have for improving school performance after all” (Tyre).
