My experience with co-teaching has been beneficial for my class especially for the ELLs and the monolingual students. When my mentor is teaching, my lowest students sit in a different table with me. Differentiation has helped them because they get additional help, clarification of any misconceptions, restating of key vocabulary or key points and also they get to use manipulatives that might help them understand a concept better. This differentiation has helped as they are testing higher in math and two ELL students are now reading at grade level. Co-teaching allows both teachers to work together and it allows for many instructional strategies.
Tiffani and Mrs. Tivia, they are so helpful and make my job much easier. We work as a team to educate two-years-old children on basic life learn lessons. We divide the children up into groups, depends on how many we get that day, and we do different activities with the children. Mrs. Tiffani group was Reading: she reads to them, teach them their alphabets, and their weeks and months. Mrs. Tivia group was Science: teach them their colors, the weather, and have different items to teach and describe how things feel.

Member, National Honors Society, As an active member of National Honors Society one of our main tenets of leadership is building a strong presence in the community as a whole-school or otherwise. This manifested into offering after school tutoring in math and science areas where the school struggles in terms of college readiness. I was initially apprehensive, wondering if people would show up after school to study. But, I was pleasantly surprised at the number of people willing to take charge of their own learning and taking the after school tutoring extra help. Because I was actively tutoring students I was able to improve my own knowledge of the course material and continuously learn and improve myself.
The students were highly engaged. I could say that the concepts to be learn were explicitly linked to ELLs’ background experience and past learning. I listened to the teacher’s speech and voice projection, it was appropriate (not too slow, not too fast), and she emphasized the importance of being respectful/active listeners. She ensured that each students had sufficient time to respond to her questions, and clarify if a student seemed confused (regarding the objectives). As the students did the group work, Mrs. Carbone foster noticing.
Volunteering is an opportunity to make a lasting contribution in the community. Through this rewarding experience, I not only gained my service hours, but I also was able to contribute a connection with the faculty. I could always go back to them for additional support or advice. Interacting with them enhanced my communication skills. Despite all of this, I noticed how much I enjoyed interacting with children and the faculty.
One career I am deeply interested in is psychology. I chose to interview Julie Cloonan, from the Psychology field. Julie is a guidance counselor at three elementary schools in my hometown. I am interested in the field of psychology because I enjoy helping and working with others. I feel like a career in psychology would be rewarding too.
Things I Appreciate Myself The first thing that I appreciate myself is participating class actively. In the in-class exercises, I always join the discussion actively, sometimes I will be the counselor, sometimes I will be the group member. I believed that what I did in the exercise and other group member’s involvement can make all member engaged in the exercise.
The teacher has a positive attitude towards her students and teaching. She smiled, she took time to say hello, and asked how their weekends were. During their conversations, she would maintain eye contact with the students. During instructional time, she was prepared for the upcoming lesson and follow-up. She showed a passion for teaching through the energy, drive, and cohesiveness of the classroom.
feel that a lot of the outcomes listed in area five are very interchangeable I feel that I have met the first two outcomes very naturally with the students just by showing up in the classroom. these students are each very unique and dynamic in there own way with different strengths and presenting challenges. I help any student that walks into the classroom no matter what. they are here to learn and get help so i help them. i am able to identify tpersonal, interpersonal and societal historical and current barriers that oppress or discriminate the clientele served.
Video Response 3 Addressing a student’s needs plays a vital part in the student’s academic success. Understanding one’s needs requires that a teacher take the steps to understanding the child’s personality traits, interests, abilities, disabilities, and so forth. Students are more likely to grasp the interest of learning a specific subject if they feel that the teacher is kind and understanding, just as Trisha and Brittany’s teachers is. Brittany’s mother mentions that a significant change is notable in Brittany’s self-esteem and grades (Kirk, Gallagher, & Coleman, 2015). Trisha certainly associates her good grades to her relationship with her science teacher and identifies her teacher as helpful (Kirk, Gallagher, & Coleman, 2015).
I have had the pleasure of having Lucero as an Algebra II student and as a tutor/mentor for my younger students. I have watched her become an amazing young person over the last few years who values hard work, helping others and education. I have seen Lucero’s enthusiasm for helping others through education develop into a passion that drives her educational focus. She is an extraordinary young woman who has given so much of her time to better our Greeley Central community and our Greeley community. She is always looking for ways where she can help others become successful.
The differences were minimal because Mrs. Pitcher and Ms. Valentine work as a team. An “ah ha” moment for me was to observe how well the kids work together and have well establish routines. The reading strategies used were reading groups by level and students answering comprehension questions. The teachers
I have experience in different grade levels such as pre-k, kindergarten, and the 2nd grade. Student teaching was an amazing experience, I learned that I am patient, caring ,and the students really respected me as an authority figure, all characteristics I plan to take with me into school counseling. Even though, teaching was a great opportunity,
