I really stressed because I am mostly worried about this class instead of all my other classes. I hope that I make a good grade in this class or actually pass as of right now. This process has taught me a lot on how to conduct research on a topic. Racial profiling in education is something I am passionate about because of all the findings that I have come across. It strikes an interest in me because I am an Elementary Ed major and I will deal with certain situations that I have read about and I hope I make the right decision when my time comes.
One way is to be very organized. I learned every year how to be organized and I learned new techniques to improve. AVID helped me significantly to be organized. I feel like organization is a key to college because if I was not organized, it will be hard for me to find my assignments and I do not think I will do well. All my teachers love my binders because it is neat, organized, and easy for them to find assignments.
As we near the end of my first year of teaching, there are many areas upon which to reflect great growth in myself and in my students. It is important to notice great achievements that have occurred, even if in small baby steps over the past six months. This can be seen through reflection of my personal growth in classroom management, my students’ writing skills progress, and the achievement of TEPG propositions 4 and 5. Professional Goal To plan and implement class management strategies and routines that decrease misbehaviors and increase learning time and engagement. As a new teacher, it has been important to establish many strategies that help my students to become more independent, especially to create an environment in which students can be safe and engaged.
Work with children Throughout my high school and college years, I have had several experiences with children that have all played a part in shaping my love for working with children. During high school, I spent two summers nannying for two young school aged children. Working with these siblings really made me realize how much fun I have working with children and watching them grow. Once I came to college, I started another babysitting job working with two four year old twin girls. This job really taught me about the importance of children having a routine to follow as well as the impact teachers can have on a child’s life.
After the past few weeks and taking the time to think about how I process my thoughts has really helped me to put into perspective the best ways for me to approach my work and my time management. It’s important for me to take the time to think about these things, so I can be the most efficient and successful version of myself in my time here. Thinking about thinking helps me to process the best ways for me to study, which I am really learning about now after receiving grades to my first few college tests. I’m able to see what has been working well for me, like working with my friends who have similar goals as me, and spending my time in the library where I’m able to focus best, but also knowing when I need a break, and when I need to switch environments to keep myself from getting too tired and bored. I often leave the library and work in my room for a bit, and then study in McGowan South.
Teachers have a lot of work but on top of that, they have to grade 100 billion piles of essays. Wouldn’t it be great if you’re a teacher and your students were having a writing assignment and instead of grading it yourself you just place them in Automated Essay Scoring (AES) and it would do it for you? AES is a grading machine that gives teachers better understanding on how the students did and check their punctuation, grammar mistakes, vocabulary usage and much more. This is all possible because of artificial intelligence (AI). AI is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans and other animals.
Throughout my four years at Godinez Fundamental High School, I have been involved in ASB Senate, National Honor Society, Key Club, and American Red Cross where I was able to meet and interact with new friends. I got to meet new people of whom I have never seen before at school. Of all the involvement that I have been involved in my school’s community have become memories to me. I enjoyed many moments with my friends which became my memories as part of my high school experience. My friends and I created many moments with laughters where we get to relax and to not stress out.
I chose a research essay, one of the assessments in HSS, for reflection because this task was definitely beneficial as well as interesting one. I improved my creative abilities in writing assignments and developed my critical thinking skills investigating a certain topic. Also, it was my first research essay, therefore it is better to write my first sense and experience about what I learnt and what I should improve in further research. The research essay is a written assessment where a student should explore selected topic supporting a thesis statement with providing strong arguments from various academic sources. There I had to write to what extent Kazakh culture is changing for the better (worse) in about thousand words.
I still thought that psychology was a major reading of the minds of others before the psychology lecture began. However, it was my exaggerated prejudice. What I was most surprised about when I read Chapter 1 of the textbook is that psychology is the most scientific aspect field of the social science branch. I apply the scientific method learned in the chemistry lecture to the psychology as well, and make a hypothesis and experiment. Many scholars regard the measure such as inner mind and thought area consider as a measurable form.
It is the place where another undergraduate student can struggle, fail, and learn how to excel. It is the place where I started as a student, the place that could have taught me so much more than what I learned. Years after struggling as that student, I am a teacher, a mentor, and a researcher, but only because I found something meaningful that taught me something about biology and science. That is what I aim to create for my
