For I haven’t experienced that kind of situation before, I had a chat with a group of black learners and it was very intriguing to hear that they always treated like that, whites with whites and blacks with blacks and often refer to the whites as the superior and intelligent ones. Therefore one can say learners in other schools are still experiencing racism, as they are not given the same

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.
