Both years I have helped in foreign language, more specifically, Spanish classes. My junior year was basic; I would grade papers and help organize things around the classroom. This year, as a senior, I have grown more confident with the language and have been able to help the students that are struggling with translations. Serving as help around the classroom, doing a lot more to actually assist the teacher if a student seemed to be struggling. I’ve even helped decorate the classroom and keep books organized and in good shape.
There are many of these groups, and the community really appreciates having a native English speaker. It allows people in the community learning English the opportunity to hear an American accent, and practice speaking with a native speaker. The language exchange also gives me the opportunity to be a cultural ambassador to the community. I will benefit from being an English Teaching Assistant because it will allow me to learn new teaching styles within a different educational system. In addition, living in Spain will allow me to immerse myself in Spanish culture and society, improving my Spanish speaking skills.
These presentations have and will help me out during school because many courses require you to present in front of your class. The more you do something, the more you get better at it. The second skill that Gls has helped me with is my interview skills. If you guys recall we had an interview assignment not too long ago which I found really
Classroom management and consistency is very important with this class. I know I have improved a lot from the beginning, like with being proactive about handling student conflicts. However, I need to work on being able to talk down a student when they are very upset. Overall, my management skills with get better with the more experience I have in a classroom. Character and personality As a beginning teacher, I believe in building relationships with the students, parents, and community.
Think about everything that is part of school - classes, teachers, friends, activities, homework, learning, etc. What is your favorite part (or parts) of school? Why? The best part of school is the opportunity of learning from international teachers and peers. From them, I’m able to understand different perspectives, embrace diversity and emerge myself in a new way of teaching and learning.
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.

Mrs. Tivia group was Science: teach them their colors, the weather, and have different items to teach and describe how things feel.

For the past two years I have immersed myself in learning about developmentally appropriate early childhood teaching practices, the impact of early childhood education on families and society and something else. Through my field placements and working as a full time teaching assistant I have acquired a command of early childhood curriculum frameworks and best practices for implementation in the classroom. Teaching in the early childhood setting is my passion, but it is also my second career. I bring to the classroom an unique perspective, and pragmatic outlook about the skills and talents needed to succeed in the 21st century workforce. There was a common thread throughout my education at MCLA that urged us to recognize the importance of standards,
During the class, I always record the lessons and draw a mind map for each one, so I can hear it again during look at the mind map. It helps me easier understand and recall the lessons. For instance, in mid-term or final test for each term, I can review the lesson in effective way and it can support me achieve distinction. I usually walk back and forth and read out loud if I want to memorize the topic or words. By using VAK my study increases day by day and support me gain lots of achievement such as “model student” certifications in English lv3 and lv4 at ERCI.

I observed at Homewood High School to satisfy my ECY 300 Field Experience requirement. I was able to observe students with exceptionalities in three service delivery options: a regular classroom practicing inclusion, a resource room, and a self-contained classroom for an Essential Skills class. I really enjoyed the time I spent with the students and my cooperating teacher. I will take many valuable lessons with me as I continue my pursuit of earning my undergraduate degree and a teaching certificate. I witnessed firsthand a variety of modifications that I can use to help my students with exceptionalities in my own classroom one day.
The presentations provided me a great learning experience for me to teach and share what I know in a classroom setting while getting feedback. I felt more at ease with my second workshop in regards to the transition process/pathway to graduate school, as I was sharing my personal experience mixed with that of the facts and figures that I had research to give students a clear understanding of the process. With my future goals of becoming an advisor at a Community College for a first year experience (FYE) program, I am glad to put on my resume that I have started to gain experience teaching, as teaching a college prep course are the duties of advisors in FYE
I shadowed teachers and truly believed that teaching was my desired career path. 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,
After three quarters and over six months, I was able to go to an in depth interview with the teacher of the classroom that I peer tutor. Mr. Kanna the U.S. History teacher for juniors, has been working with me in order to help spread the knowledge further for the entire class.

I have personally take great joy in helping out the students in any way possible.
