It felt like I belonged there. I gained a lot of knowledge as an individual. I was able to help them out the kids and they ended up loving me. I received a lot of confidence and knowledge about children. Helping every day for a while helped me overcome my shyness.
I believe Brebeuf Jesuit would be the best school for me because I feel comfortable when I am there. I already know and have met many people at Brebeuf. They have told me about their great experiences, and what it is like being a student there. I am very connected to many people at the school, which has brought me much closer to the school and the people there. Personally, I really enjoy the sizes of the classes.
This trip specifically focuses on youth education and Native American issues. Essentially, my team members are helping out in the classrooms (TAing in a way) and also trying to be a role model for the students by pushing the importance of education and college. A lot of these kids only know this community and many of the elders and their parents do not have a college education, so they do not understand the importance of education. It is hard to see if we are making an impact in such a short amount of time, and I know my 15 other team members are incredibly sad to be leaving the schools. As soon as the kids saw us Monday morning, they were all over us in excitement!
There are always people and businesses looking for help, and it is usually easy to find a way to help, especially when you are in FBLA. When Ms. Mirabal told the class about our community service project, I was excited because I never really volunteered before. Becoming involved in community service provided me with
Not one teacher can tell them what to do or force them to do anything, it’s all brought upon them and they choices they make. Although, sometimes a little push and shove is what some of them need to success. There is a variety of all different kind of classes to choose from here taught at Garber. Counselors at Garber High meet with you often and ask how classes are going and they make sure they pick the right classes for them to better their future. It all matters in high school what they choose to do, and how to be 100% successful.
Most teachers have great relationships with their students and want them to succeed. Some students struggle and end up cheating. Having an Honor Code would destroy these resected student-teacher relationships non existent due to the fact that students would have to tell on other students. The balance that had been established would be destroyed and could never be recovered. Having an Honor Code will fracture the trust that students have with teachers.
Positive, productive learning needs to be the focus. My favorite field experience, by far was this one here at Van E. Blanton Elementary School. I was placed in a classroom with students with many diverse, yet was not passing their state testing and obviously needed more attention and help. The teacher helped each student individually and showed incredible amounts of patience. She created a healthy classroom environment, and the students were all engaged and excited about learning.
This is the story of me being a bystander for my own benefit. Back when I was in high school I used to change schools often due to my family moving. But after we settled in our new house, I joined an English high school and it was my first time at an English school. Everybody there happened to be so friendly and very helpful. This was very different to me because my past schools’ I was always the “new kid” that was not wanted around much, so having to be the center of attention in the new place with everybody wanting to know me and introduce me around was very pleasing and I never wanted it to end.
Most teachers I have spoken to in relation to this new rule, have given me unsatisfactory feedback towards the subject and have confirmed their own unhappiness. A school must have rules and systems that satisfy all of its members, if the school was working fine before, I honestly do not understand why this new system was implemented. Because it was clearly not made for the benefit of the students. I also understand that teachers do not appreciate the extra work of creating quizzes everyday and having to grade them everyday. Not only that, but if their students do not receive good grades on their quizzes, their grades will drop eventually.
Cheating is not only an issue in the classroom, but outside of it as well. Cheating has become one of the top reasons relationships have tended to last much shorter spans in contrast to previous times. Consequently, cheating hinders more than just a person’s ability to learn, but it also negatively affects their character. If you asked an average high school student to give you reasons for cheating in school, I am certain the list would be never ending - from reasons as simple as being too lazy to complete the tasks, to some students just flat out not understanding their assignments. Jones suggest that, “The reasons students engage in academic dishonesty vary, but as commonly understood, the overriding reason is performance” (144).
It has instilled discipline, respect, and honesty in today 's, yesterday 's, and tomorrow 's youth. From my personal experience I have felt welcome and felt encouraged to be a better person than I ever thought possible. As have the past, present, and future cadets. The goals are the most simple yet the most complex in any one of my classes! The program has made me, along with countless others, very proud to be in it.
The main points of a school are a place where students can learn and feel safe. Students talk about our classes being too dull and not really a true environment to learn and with the new renovations I feel as if the students would feel like they finally have a place they feel comfortable to study and work at. The other main point is safety one of the most important things maybe not seen by students but valued by teachers and parents. One of the major disasters going throughout the country are school shootings. With the new and improved security system and the setup of superintendents everyone who has to go through the superintendent in order to get into the school thus casing shady characters to not enter.
I witnessed firsthand a variety of modifications that I can use to help my students with exceptionalities in my own classroom one day. The teachers really showed love in everything that they did and it gave the students a desire to do their
This placement was the hardest setting I have ever had to teach in my undergraduate career. I thought my high school placement was going to be hard for me and I am really glad I was able to build up my confidence as a teacher in that placement in order to prepare me to handle this placement. The overall setting of the room is stressful. My teacher and her two assistants were struggling before I came on board and before the incident with one my students running out on Westport road, we were basically surviving the day. The first week I was wondering how I could possibly fit into this setting because there were no group lessons going on and just independent work.
