My first assessment with Rheya was a concept of print assessment on the book “Follow Me Moon”. Rheya is five years of age and attending a kindergarten class at Miramar Elementary School. Once we sat down together, I explained to her that I was in school to become a teacher and that I needed her help for several assessments. I wanted her to understand why she was being assessed and I also wanted to give her a sense of purpose by “helping me”. After informing Rheya about the assessment, she responded by telling me that she wants to become a teacher when she’s older as well.
My literacy journey started when I was four years old. During that time, my grandmother, Martina Elizabeth Moatshe, was a teacher at her pre-school. She helped me with regards to spelling, counting and English intonation. She believed that it was vital for one to be able to grasp certain concepts regarding language devices such as recognizing different literary elements [the protagonist and antagonist in the ‘Three Little Pigs’] and different literacy techniques [assonance and repetition with regards to nursery rhymes]. At the age of six, I graduated grade R and commenced grade one at Central Secondary School.

Field Reflection This semester, I was at Waldron Mercy Academy for my field placement. I was able to observe eight different teachers through my 9 weeks of attending field, which I found to be very beneficial to see how other teachers work and manage their classes within the same school. Between those eight teachers, I observed sixth, seventh, and eighth grades language arts, sixth grade social studies, seventh and eighth grade science, and eighth grade Latin/study skills/high school prep class. This upcoming week, for my last week of field, I will be observing a seventh-grade history class. I observed many ways to go about classroom management.
Starting the age of 5, we come to school everyday to learn something and expand our horizons. We start with the basics, such as the ABC’s and our 123’s, until we work our way up to a more in depth discussion of each subject, such as English II. This semester, I have learned topics in the field of English II,such as grasping the underlying meaning a book presents, the 12 archetypes, even the subject of debate. The semester began with the discussion of “The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd. The first day of class we needed to have the book annotated and ready for discussion.
