As a high school student, I bumped into my former first grade teacher, Mrs. Ponder. She recognized my mother who was with me in the Ingles grocery store’s checkout line. After exchanging pleasantries and talking about how much I have grown since my elementary school days, she asked “Do you still like science?” Two things were going on inside my head. One, science really has been my favorite subject to study my entire life. Two, my first grade teacher, which I have not seen in ten or so years, remembers my passion for science, even as a five year old child.
For my preschool observation, I went to little jungle childcare center in Fargo, North Dakota. I knew about this childcare facility, because I have been working there for about seven months. It was truly a different experience to take my break earlier in the day and just observe the class that I usually work in. Through observations, I was able to actually think about why the room is set up the way it is, watch how students and teachers listen and talk to each other, and think about why we do some of the assessment that we do with the kids. Description of the Classroom At Little Jungle Care Child Center, every classroom is themed with a different animal from the jungle.
My first assessment with Rheya was a concept of print assessment on the book “Follow Me Moon”. Rheya is five years of age and attending a kindergarten class at Miramar Elementary School. Once we sat down together, I explained to her that I was in school to become a teacher and that I needed her help for several assessments. I wanted her to understand why she was being assessed and I also wanted to give her a sense of purpose by “helping me”. After informing Rheya about the assessment, she responded by telling me that she wants to become a teacher when she’s older as well.

In highschool I was highly committed to a program called "Breakthrough" for my last three years in high school. Breakthrough helps first generation students go to college, starting to work with them in middle school. It's an amazing organization and helps the kids every step of the way, whether it be tutoring for a hard math exam in 8th grade or application help when applying to college in 12th grade. My role was to be a mentor leader during Saturday sessions. From 8am to 4pm, we would lead 12 - 15 students through activities to learn about college, or just work on important skills such as writing, reading and research.
I have been a member of the staff for five years now. My duties as a member are planning and teaching an innovative lesson once a week. I teach them every Sunday. The children I teach range from the ages of three to twelve. When I arrange these lessons out I have the role of a teacher in school.
During the week of March 10th -20th, I went back home to New Jersey. When I went back home, I did my observation at Hawthorne Avenue Elementary School. This school runs from pre-kindergarten through the 8th grade. The purpose of this paper is to see what theory best fits with my candidates that fall under early childhood, middle to late childhood, and adolescence. Each interview that I did with my candidates were face to face.
I offered my time during the next semester to help work further on the yearbook. So for the past two months I’ve been revising and adding little things to the yearbook. For me personally, I enjoyed working on the yearbook. Helping create something that future students can reflect back on to remember little things about school. In these past two weeks, I managed to let someone change into my lane, made a fabulous ice cream cake, and have been volunteering help to finish my school yearbook.
For any of the studies that you discuss, be sure to provide a brief outline of the study (goals/hypotheses, how data were collected) as well as how the results illustrate your point (30 points). (b) What is the message here (i.e., the research you have just discussed) to parents of children during their first year of life? (10 points). Tincoff and Jusczyk examined 3-4 months old word comprehension by examining representation of objects and events, patterns of words, attentional cues, and visual events. The goal of their study was to determine if by 6 months of age, babies could comprehend the words hand and feet.
The junior students at my school rely on student mentors for support in their individual growth. As a mentor, I develop weekly lesson plans to engage grade 8 students in their transition to high school. Supporting these students and providing guidance in their academic and personal life is what I am there for. These grade 8 students need senior students who will encourage and ensure that they will be fine in high school because they can form connections as students. I only had personal connections with two senior students when I entered grade 8, and they were both family members.

I was tired of always feeling rushed to finish assignments or even chores around my house that I googled ways to improve on not being distracted which contributed to my time management. I no longer use my phone during the hours I do my homework and that has led me to completing my assignments on time. I even have my parents take my phone if I feel it will be too much of a
The curriculum followed by TEA is periodically updated by the State Board of Education and is known as TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and skills). Textbooks are then written in accordance with the TEKS for the different grade levels.

preschool teacher, like my mom. I graduated college with a teaching degree and I got a job teaching with the Dubuque Community School District. My favorite part of my job was working with kids and helping them learn. I didn’t hate anything about it. When I was 23 I got married and had two kids, Maddison (Maddie for short) and Max, who are twins.
