Class is already very tiring, think of adding hour long test. Children working as hard as possible, but secretly wondering when this dreadful test is going to be over. You could be learning more valuable information, that could be used for more classroom test. Speaking of the classroom testing why would you want students to test any more. Students who have to test weekly know where I’m coming from what is the point of testing weekly just to lead up to an even bigger test.
Kathy has phonemic awareness for the first sound in words starting with consonants. She understands the sound-symbol relationship for all consonants and has emerging knowledge for vowels. In addition to that she has a mild case of visual impairment which is getting worst, making it hard for her to participate in daily routines. Her teacher is very aware of her disabilities and how it affects the learning process. IEP& 504:
At 46 years old, I was not a spring chicken, and was unsure if I could handle it or even fit in. The class started out with 120 students, all young enough to be my children, talk about the generation gap. Having to work twice as hard to keep up with my younger counterparts, I befriended several of the classmates, which until today I still keep in touch. In addition, it was difficult to juggle, between responsibilities and school, so family time was challenging. Remembering back, the hours spent studying late into the night because it was the only quiet time available.
The last week of camp, the girls were more confident in math that it made things easier that we would all start making math games and hang out with the girls. The main role of the whole camp was to help out the girls that were having struggles in math and doubting themselves. By the end of the two weeks the girls and I had a deep conection of the fact that I was able to be there with them from the beginning till the end. Leaving the camp left me wondering what makes girls seem like they are less when they have so much potential and that they are treated so differently than
Mrs. Tijerina even uses her personal time to create activities that she will use on her class ( 88 hours payed,10-15 of her free time). To perform her work Mrs. Tijerina uses teaching strategies such as group work, guided practice, on-hands activities (labs), individual practice, class discussion among others, but also equally important is the way she manage her class room, in order to promote more easily education and maintain control the students, she uses techniques such as restroom passes, assigned sits, parents and students conferences. Ultimately, all hard work pay off, even if Mrs. Tijerina have some challenges as a teacher, all are worth with the “Aaah” moment, which she describe as the moment in which a student understand something that they didn’t
There are times when she comes home completely exhausted from a practice, yet still manages to have the drive to open a chemistry textbook or start several hours of homework for the following day. You can also notice this amount of effort given on and off the court. If she has an off game, one
I am taking away a lot of new information from my observations and time I have spent with the ELL students. I witnessed the struggled that these students sometimes have to deal with something as simple as copying a sentences off the board and keeping up with the rest of the class. It takes them twice as long, because they have to look at each word and each word multiple times to copy it correctly. I learned how much more work it is to teach ELL students and how much more effort you as a teacher have to put into these students, but also how much more effort the students themselves have to put into their work. I learned you have to be patient and calm with ELL students, because they need that from their educators, ELL students need to surround
I was always depending on my mother to do my writing homework. One day, my teacher gave me an assignment about comparing between poor people and rich people. This time my mother told me that this is really important subject in our lives that you will learn many things by writing this one. She told me, “You will learn the differences between being poor and being rich and what the disadvantages and advantages are for both. This will assist you to understand the people around you.”
The biggest headaches I get are from those students who have no training and no experience—yet they’re certain they have a divine gift or instinct for executive protection. These students are trainable, but they might have to repeat the class after some field experience to really understand what is new and different about this discipline. Repeating my classes is always free, and some lessons are much more real to students the second time around. I have a great track record with the quality of students who have come through my school.
I never knew an F would put me in a dark place. I usually find happiness in everything but this is F represented on how society looks at me. If I’m not a genius then I 'm stupid. I was always the smart kid in class so giving me this F was like a love one was telling me I don 't matter. The worst thing about this was telling my parents.
