I learned to understand her struggles at school by knowing that she was always picked on because she didn 't do anything in class and when a teacher did call on her would say something funny and that would eventually get her sent to the office. I felt bad for her because he was try and she just couldn 't do anything she would get really bad headaches from writing a little paragraph and it would take her like an hour. When she was at the dinner were her mom works to Bullies from school came up to her and started talking to her nice in the beginning and then they wanted her to read them the names of ice cream.
When looking at her school work and from the information that was previously gathered from sessions with Hailey, it was important to assess her as an oral reader, silent reader, writer, word solver, problem solver, and her comprehension. Using a variety of assessments and taking the new information and planning to help Hailey be more successful was important. Also, looking at how Hailey performs across academic areas was another clue to help her be a better student. To have a better picture of Hailey, she brought her academic folders with her to review some of her class work and writing responses, almost like a work portfolio. Hailey made it clear that Science and Math can be more difficult for her than other
In 7th grade, I transferred from Bryan Middle school to Visitation Catholic School and there was not enough room in the accelerated math program, which ultimately set me behind. In high school, I found myself bored in math and knew I needed to challenge myself, so I ended up setting up a meeting with the math department head and we discussed my options. Sophomore year, I ended up taking two math classes, which was not easy; double the test, quizzes and lessons! However, by taking two math classes, I was able to get myself into a higher math class which ultimately was my goal, and achieving it was an amazing feeling.
As a middle school student I was always horrible in math. It truly was my worst subject. Lucky enough for me I was able to pass with the lowest scores possible. As I graduated and entered high school, I realized that it was no longer that easy to pass without knowing the material. So because of this I knew I had to study and take time out to really grasp the methods and learn how to use them.
and I see how some of the kids treat her. She really just wants to be treated like any another kid and not be counted out because of her disability. She thought me to treat everyone with the same respect and be open-minded when it comes to people with disability. Yes, they might have a disability but that doesn’t define them, they are bigger than their disability. I don’t believe that I preferred abled person over disable person.
She does try to fill me in on what they are working on and has so far seemed comfortable with what the class is doing. We have also been working on building Ashley’s vocabulary. In order to add new vocabulary in context, I have been reading Ashley high interest books with challenging vocabulary. We discuss the story and new words and review both content and language as we go. Ashley has been using more advanced vocabulary during our discussions.
She is very organized at school, and considers it a very important skill to her success. She is always on top of her work, and hates the stressful feeling she gets when she starts to fall behind a little. She is always striving to improve herself, and has improved considerably through her years in high school. For example, she has also tried to become more involved in her classes by participating more and staying involved in class discussions, but it is still a trait she is trying to better herself in. One skill she has always stood out in is her hard work.
I was fortunate to be placed in Ms. Gohil’s classroom because her classroom was dedicated to students with special needs. This allowed me to experience first hand what an actual special education teacher does during a typical class day. I also was able to see paraprofessional work with the students on constant bases, not like my previous experience where the paraprofessional would only visit the child for approximately 20 - 30 mins per class period. What I also like was that I witnessed various behavioral changes from students and was able to see in real time how the teacher and paraprofessional handled these behaviors. At first, I did not understand some of the techniques that were being used, but then I would ask Ms. Gohil questions and
This was normal, but she began getting a little too independent. She was getting up late at night and making her own snacks. I was a little bothered by this so we talked about a better way to let her be independent. The most shocking of all was when she got into a fight at school.
The transition from childhood to adulthood occurs when an individual is able to recognize the impact he or she can leave upon their community, gaining life skills doing so. An accomplishment that marked my transition from childhood to adulthood, would be best demonstrated by the process and completion of a leadership responsibility when I performed my Eagle Scout Project. I joined the scouting program when I was very young, and have been very active since ever. Becoming an Eagle Scout has many challenges that a young Boy Scout must undertake, including the completion of a community-based project, which is an important step in obtaining this notable rank. The Eagle Scout Project is designed for the scout to learn different leadership responsibilities. The project allows the scout to have practice with difficult situations to give the young man experience in life lessons. My community-based project was
I worked as a PPCD aide for Shadow Glen Elementary in the Manor Isd district from March 21- April 22 under the supervision of Mrs. Clack-Jones the PPCD teacher. Our classroom setup was different than most, because our morning classroom consisted of 5-6 kids at a time, ages between 3-5. In the afternoon me and another aide were sent out to a Pre-k class to help out the Pre-k teacher. Both the morning teacher and afternoon teacher had different approaches to gaining the class’s attention. The morning teacher, Mrs. Clack used more than one method to gain the kids attention, since the children in her classroom were either Autistic or have Down syndrome.
To me this was a huge help because it was hard to be in a school that taught a language that I didn’t know. I was a fast learner and I adjusted well but without this teacher my transition would of been harder. While doing observation hours I was able to see kids that face the same struggles I once did and it’s not easy.
