It amazes me how willing everyone is to stop and help someone they barely know or to have a conversation with anyone. This makes each grade of about 40-60 students very close and fosters an environment that makes learning much more comfortable. During their high school prep class, students were asked if they felt comfortable raising their hand and asking questions in class. Every single student said that they were, which is something that is amazing and rare. The teachers at Waldron encourage this positive learning environment that is so crucial to student
Bethany Hill once stated, “Every child you pass in the hall has a story that needs to be heard, maybe you are the one that needs to hear it.” That quote works because the person might have trouble at home and they might need a counselor to almost let a burden off of their shoulders and tell their story to. Some of the reasons Career Cruising chose being a school counselor for me because I like training and teaching, working with children and providing advice. I am most interested in pursuing a career as a school counselor because of its likeable working conditions, straightforward responsibilities and simple career preparations. School counselors provide information and support to students of all ages. They also help students make great choices
This is not a verifiable and accurate total because of his special education status; the vice-principal shared she does not record every incident. The vice principal stated A. has been in the office multiple times each week because he has hit the aide or another student. Most of his aggressive behaviors do occur during unstructured or transition activities and aggression is mainly directed toward the
Throughout the semester its been clear that the four agreements, which are staying engaged, experiencing discomfort, speaking your truth, and expecting and accepting non-closure have been used to guide us in discussions and activities in class. These four agreements have been particularly useful when it came to interacting with my peers and I looked forward to overcoming and facing some of the agreements that aren’t always easy to face. In this paper I will share five examples of how I expirenced each of these agreements in the classroom, and how they will be useful in the future. The first agreement, which is staying engaged means that one remains morally, emotionally, intellectually, and socially involved. A specific example in where I used
Here, the kids learned how to read, write, and how to behave themselves. At age 7, the boys moved up to Grammar School, unless you were born into nobility. Grammar School were often taught by Ushers until the boys reached age 10. At Grammar School they learned parts of speech, nouns, grammar and sentence structure, and how to translate English to Latin. In Grammar school the life was harsh, the boys had to be in class for six o’clock and did not get out until five.
This young man was ready to begin life as a middle school student. After a little research, I discovered Will had perfect attendance every day of kindergarten, first, third, fourth, and fifth grade. Randomly during second grade he missed 9 days of school. Sometime during second grade he was referred to the speech department for hearing and speech. He was identified in third grade as AIG in both math and reading.
So that was kind of how the daily routine went for all of elementary. Every day after school we sat down together and worked on the school work that would always be giving me trouble whether it was a spelling test or some math homework. Most conversations went like “Your brother Erik can do it just fine, why can't you?” or “Everyone else in class understands this just fine, so that means you aren’t trying enough.” Eventually things started to click it started slowly at first like “Wow Isaac you did ok on this spelling bee.” my mother would say or “You did most of this homework by yourself?” I gradually became independent enough to do work on my own and only with occasional help from my mother or Erik my brother. Finally about the time I started middle school my mother's expectations didn’t go lower it was that I was able to meet them easier. So now when it seems like my mom doesn't expect much it’s because we share the same expectations for me to be responsible and successful and it's not something that needs a constant reminder or outside help, because they match my own
I began my year with four classes and one of them was my fourth block class, Dual Enrollment English 111. Typing papers and discussing interesting readings from the textbook has always been a good end to my day. Through the many English classes I have taken, this class has taught me the most so far. The experiences that I have in this class will guide me through college with a stronger understanding on how to write effectively and efficiently. Through Dual Enrollment English, I have learned how to write a well thought out paper while managing my busy schedule and have learned many lessons along the way.
My dad had a fulfilling childhood especially with having a house with __ older siblings. In elementary school my dad was exposed to different cultures of his other classmates so he was learning something new everyday. School life seemed to always be good for him. He was very popular in school, had good academics and he was very respectful to his teachers. He was still mischievous at times but knew his limit.
The class objectives included: to be able to orally preset poems using key vocabulary (adjectives), to attend to speaker, and to assess what is heard. At first, the teacher welcomed the students and asked them to write for five minutes “morning pages.” Students had to be completely silent, whatever is in their mind (free writing) serving a tool to practice “mindfulness.” This was a double exercise activity; it gave the opportunity for students to develop writing stamina, and Mrs. Carbone uses their writing as a tool to measure learning. Right after that, the teacher explained the lesson for the day, the class objectives. Since the goal for this class, was to finished presenting their work orally and visually, students were prompted to provide positive on constructive feedback, to follow the class agreements (rules) they created at the beginning of the year, and they only practiced for about seven minutes (pair and share). After the students did collaborative learning, they went back to their seat.
Liabilities were interesting to observe in the classroom. The very first day I observed, I noticed some issues with how grades and IEPS were being handled. For starters, my teacher let me look at online grading records of students. The lowest and highest GPAs, were shown to me and I was allowed to look at their scores in their regular English class as well. I felt uncomfortable doing this, because I had just met him and did not really know the kids well.
