My observation of Mrs. Seeley, a SpEd teacher at Sigourney High School, was very interesting and inspirational. The way that she connected to every student and morphed her teaching around each student’s disability was remarkable. I was truly amazed, especially with the kids who had ADD or ADHD because they were calm, collected, and well behaved. When, usually, they are bouncing off of the walls, cannot focus, and don 't listen to directions well. They were all on task and did everything that she asked them to; this showed me how much that they respected her.
Mrs. Kern’s behavior techniques and strategies are all based upon “Catch them being good!” She believes that praise and connectivity are the ways of having few behavior problems. She also shares personal stories about herself and her family every day with her students. This is to help her build a safe and family-like classroom.
I learned a lot about myself as a teacher and how to help these students individually without neglecting the rest of the class while tending to their needs. It wasn't difficult for me to walk by Kiden's desk and praise her for what she was doing, or give her praise during whole group interaction. However, this meat the world to her and boosted her self confidence in the skill and concepts that were being taught. In the same way I was able to help Kiden, I was also able to help Pau and Georgia with the things they needed such as reading the instructions to them one-on-one or checking in on them throughout the assessment just to make sure they were on the right track.
Coty’s philosophy of building a relationship with students is so on point. Her idea is that the more a student likes and respects you, the more they’ll want to behave and do well in your class. I remember a story from my father’s childhood where the only class he actually tried to do well in was because he really liked the teacher. Having a positive attitude, getting down on a child’s level, being silly with them, and letting them know you care are all great ways to build a relationship and thereby improve your classroom management abilities. I thoroughly enjoyed Mrs. Coty’s dissertation on knowing where students are going and where they’ve been in order to tailor your lessons to their academic needs.
They prepare lessons for a range of abilities within the classroom and also meet with parents to keep them up to date with how they the children are progressing with their education and behaviour. The teaching assistants role is to work closely with the class teacher and help any pupils that need additional support. They will carry out any specific duties that are outlined in the pupil 's Individual Learning Plan (IEP) and provide feedback about pupil 's difficulties or progress to the class teacher.
Kristin helps children learn through figuring out where they are at, targeting achievable goals, coming up with strategies to meet those goals, and practicing until they meet them. This model would be similar for a child with a disability, except the goals would be broken up into smaller more achievable goals. Her personal approach to learning is “All out, go get it!”. This no holds barred approach always starts with research and helps her stay focused and on track.
Cooperative learning also creates self-confidence in each student by allowing them to be a part of a group and working together to create a common goal. - Direct instruction. With its structure, direct instruction can be one of the most powerful tools in providing instruction, for both children with and without disability. We use procedures that are grounded and systematic, providing sound teaching and learning principles. We ensure that our teachers are organized with the content needed to provide a cohesive learning environment.
She works with students of diverse populations so she has learned that she need meet them where they are at. They have their own ways of doing things and that own unique needs. So she adjusts herself to meeting their needs the best she can and beef resourceful for them. She chose this job as a Diversity Recruiter because when she was a student ambassador, she realized she loved helping students. She also loves education and
Throughout my time, so far, working with Miss. Giannotti’s class at the elementary school, I have been given a wide range of jobs and responsibilities. I’ve been given tasks that range anywhere from interacting with the children, such as leading in games and reading stories, to things that are inherently teacher-like responsibilities, such as making copies and creating a bulletin board. Of the things I’ve done in the time I’ve been with my class so far, many of them I’ve enjoyed, even, to my surprise, the seemingly mundane jobs. I love interacting with the kids. One of my favorite, and most common, jobs is to sit at a yellow table in the corner and help the students as they come to me with questions.
Being in Mrs. Weston’s 2nd grade class gave me the opportunity to see how an effective teacher engages her students in a strong learning environment. The connections I made were between the relationships the teacher had with her students, and how effective she was at delivering her lessons. When she asked a question, almost all of the students raised their hands. They were eager to participate. I believe this was done by building a safe learning environment, and providing encouragement for all students.

Drew Hayden Taylor writes, in his 1991 essay, about his life being a First Nations man but looking “Pretty like a white boy.” He writes about how he witnessed and heard so much racism towards First Nations people because people thought he was Caucasian. Taylor tells us all through out his essay that he is judged by both races for not “looking the part” of a First Nations man. At one point Taylor tells his readers about an especially embarrassing moment while visiting a trapper woman and her kids.
Why did Grace initially have difficulties helping students learn in her class? They did not relate to the information she was teaching them. She mentioned giving them a test over a story about skiing and most of the students in her class knew nothing about skiing. The information the students are being taught should relate to their personal lives in some way.
It was a cold February morning and the countdown had finally arrived. I had just signed out with staff duty to start my leave so I could make that road trip from Fort Carson, Colorado to San Antonio, TX. Only thing this trip was no vacation, it was the last visit I will never forget. I was headed to see my sister in law, Vicki who was in the intensive care unit for leukemia. The thoughts and emotions running through my mind had made the drive so difficult for me.
