After completing my junior research paper last school year I began thinking about what I would want to focus on for my senior project. I had written my paper on becoming an elementary school teacher, so I knew for my project I wanted to do something that gave me the opportunity to give back to my community. With the desires of some day becoming an elementary teacher, I decided to base my project around early education. After being informed about The Discovery Corner in Phoenix Oregon by my former English teacher, I applied and soon met my mentor Lynn DeHaven. The Discovery Corner is a daycare/ preschool which serves for children starting at 10 months all the way to 6 years old.
The Advantages of Year Round Schools Summer break is awesome, but after the break you have to start back up with school. When you walk into a math class they say “Quiz today, let 's see what you remember” and then you think to yourself how you forgot what you learned last year. Why should the teachers have to reteach the material due to the long break ("Year-Round School.")? Before I start, I just want you to know that year round and traditional schools is when you have the same number of days but at year round school days are spread out more and you get more days on the breaks. So traditional school will have the days in line and the breaks are shorter.

People could only imagine knowing Miss Soar on a personal level, yet here I was about to spend a full two weeks by her side in a classroom. Although I knew of Miss Soar, we never had a conversation, but that would soon change. Sitting at my study writing a shopping list my mother had asked for when I heard the doorbell ring followed by a brief conversation. It was Miss Soar! At dinner later that night my mother broke the new, “Honey, Miss Soar has requested your help at her camp this summer.” she said.
*As all this was going on, my grandma was still teaching away here. * Well, a few years went by, and not only did the two sisters move up into new grades, my Unlce Greg came to Burdick school, looked upon as a Pee-Wee-Herman by his fellow older sisters. A year later Justin Seefeldt, the youngest of the group, was finally going to be enrolled into school, and you guessed it, that school had been Burdick. This meant that my grandma was teaching at A.E. Burdick school and her four children had attended the school as well.
Moving to America took a huge toll on my family. My mom had to leave her husband behind, and move to a whole new country to raise her two children as a single mother. She had to leave her job, her friends, and her family to once again become a full-time college student. This change had an immense effect on my life. Over the last four years, I have had the extra responsibilities of taking care of my younger brother while my mom spent endless nights studying to be on top of her classes and keep her full scholarship at Broward College.

During the week of March 10th -20th, I went back home to New Jersey. When I went back home, I did my observation at Hawthorne Avenue Elementary School. This school runs from pre-kindergarten through the 8th grade. The purpose of this paper is to see what theory best fits with my candidates that fall under early childhood, middle to late childhood, and adolescence. Each interview that I did with my candidates were face to face.
I must learn values like responsibility, independence, and find my true self. Ever since middle school, I was six to seven weeks surviving without my parents. During these weeks, I would personally grow into an adult because I would have to balance everything and For example, when it was my high school freshman year summer I went to a golf sleepaway academy for seven weeks living with three other girls in our apartment room with a schedule consisted of golf and social events. Since I was in high school at the time I had summer homework to finish before school started. Because of this I needed to balance my schedule of academics, golf, social life, and health/sleep.
I overslept because I had gotten off late the night before, and had arrived expecting a lecture. We were doing a group project, and the look my professor gave me sent ice through my heart. I sat down with a group of girls whose names I didn’t know but were always nice to me, and kept my head down and covered the entire time, filled with a fear I had never experienced. When everyone got up to leave class, the sudden movement was too much for me, and I bolted from class, hyperventilating all the way to my car. I don’t know how long I cried, but I called into work, saying I had thrown up.

On 3/29/2016 I spoke with Leahanne Garcia at the operation. Leahanne stated she has been employed at the operation since May 2015 as a Teacher assistant. Leahanne stated on Wednesday (3/23) that the children had just woken up from nap and Andi was leading circle time, while she was moving the block center shelf back to its position. She stated the children had started to get up from the rug for center time when she heard Andi yelling "get up, get up" and was yanking Isiah up by his arm. Andi then started telling him "you will listen to me" while pointing a finger in his face.
When she came home from school, Dilcia would immediately sit down and do her homework. She would spend 4 hours everyday studying; if she wasn’t studying then she was involved in several extracurricular activities. She was involved in basketball, KEY Club, Best Buddies, and more. She always went to church every Sunday with her parents, and it helped instill good values in her. They had her get her first job a little before she turned 16.
My Grandmother made sure to wake me up every morning to haul me of to school where I would meet my loving, devoted teachers and coaches. With their help I left John Edgar Howard elementary school with a strong head on my shoulders, and the devotion to strive for more. I had to move to a different elementary school because John Edgar Howard Elementary ended up being closed, because of the rough neighborhood. I then, attended Bradbury Heights; a school that I didn’t know existed. I was never exposed to many different neighborhoods, or opportunities.
