The school Philosophy is very evident and their mission of providing students with the concepts, the skills and training required to lead productive lives. There is a gym, art room, music room, library, and computer and depending on what day of the week decides what resource they will attend. Also the school has a faculty lounge, but they don’t have parent room. Throughout
I frequently visited professor Morocho’s office for help, but it did not seem to mater. With homework, quizzes, and tests I was drowning in a sea of work. After failing my second test, I contemplated to stop going to class, because it didn’t
For example, I got to know my students and I could tell if they maybe weren’t understanding the material and needed help, or simply didn’t eat breakfast that morning and had no energy. Also, when I was in the workroom I would allow other teachers to use the materials and copy machine before me. At the end of the of my experience, I gave my students and cooperating teacher both thank-you gifts
Actually, this was a very successful year with my students. As I mentioned before, I was a mentor to Amy Fitzanko. This was not the first time I mentored a new teacher, but this year was different. Amy was to co-teach with the special education teacher for most of the day and it was not going well. It was difficult advising her on how to handle the situation.
I did not touch you is because you said you would send me an email after looking for my grades, but I always did not receive your message. You already said that you do not want to receive emails about changing the grade, so I think maybe meeting you directly would be better. Yeah, I know, my Aplia grade is not great since I forgot the last assignment and I had meetings on every Sunday night, and Clickers’ grade is not good too. However, my attendance did not affect my grade. I almost went to every class in the first half semester, but the midterm grade is not appropriate.
Due to conflicting schedule, Sedaya’s nurse was unable to show me around the first day so I was all alone trying to figure out where I was going. This minor change would have helped me feel less anxious about interacting with the student on the first day. Overall, the way that I approached this assignment was to my best ability. Having never done something like this is was a real learning experience that helped me build confidence and strength. Based on my experience, the one recommendation that I can make based off my learning style is to focus on the student’s needs and the environment.
The word they were to fix was “siting.” It was difficult for the students to comprehend that adding “ing” a lot of times doubles the preceding consonant. Once one of the students revealed the mistake, all of the students seemed to have their memory jogged of the concept but still wondered why. I believe that at this grade level they are beginning to make further connections as to why that we have these principles and rules for language. At the first grade level class that I observed they didn 't wonder why, they simply accepted the words as sight
I calendar my work, create reminders, and sometimes start a list the day before just to ensure I never miss a thing although not all days are perfect. I didn’t share my results with anyone however a few of my colleagues have taken the personality test (Junigan typology assessment) as well. What I learned about myself first, is that I have room for improvement. I don’t have to so precise although this is my very first class in quite some time. I take a lot of time to do simple things from taking notes to creating rough drafts for all of my homework assignments.
Since it is difficult to remove tenured teachers, tenure encourages school administrators to take more care when making the promotions. In contrast, tenure promotes administrators to dismiss under-performing teachers before they achieve tenure (ProCon.org). Administrators try to be very careful when they promote teacher tenure, but there are many regulations to take into
On April 26, I observed the Race and Social Justice FRINQ. Beth Tarasawa is the professor for main session and Iphi Bugingo is the mentor for this FRINQ. Main session began with going over the agenda for the day, which was written on the board. This was a way to remind students of assignments that were due soon. Because there were two guests within the classroom, myself and a guest speaker, everyone in the classroom had a chance to introduce themselves.
In the front of the room, there was a “Wall of Encouragement” where the students could post messages. This wall encompassed the attitude of the classroom. During my observations, I usually observed the science lesson and then the beginning of the writing lesson. Instruction and Learning Activities During a few of my visits, the students had extra recess. This was something that they had
The first week I was wondering how I could possibly fit into this setting because there were no group lessons going on and just independent work. I was also frustrated by the amount of “down time” that seemed to be happening. Luckily, my teacher was open to change and we changed our schedule to where all the students could go to special area at the same time. Then, I started taking over my second week teaching reading in small groups and leading morning meeting. Once a third assistant was added it easier to do whole group instruction and I felt like I finally found my footing.
