In Mrs. S’s classroom, I found many advantages to her teaching methods, learning activities, and instructional materials. The way Mrs. S interacted with her students was very positive and friendly. She allowed the students to work together to encourage their critical thinking skills and improve their independent learning skills.
It wasn't until she went to do fieldwork in schools, that she decided to become a teacher. She realized, through inspiring teachers and students she worked with, that she wanted to do just what every teacher that inspired her to do. She wants to be seen as a positive role model to her students and teach them how to cooperate with each one another. She wants to leave the great impact that each of her teachers has left on her, and she wants to have a positive impact on their lives. Getting to know a student and understanding their lives and possible hardships they face, can have a huge impact on how a student views you. Being there for your student, being supportive, being understanding, are just a few qualities all teachers should
I observed the kindergarten classroom of Sarah House. During my observation, Ms. House completed a language arts lesson with her students. Ms. House used both whole class instruction and one on one instruction during her lesson. I felt that she did an amazing job with classroom management and created lessons that were not only engaging, but fun for the students.
Moreover, she recognizes that people learn in different ways, therefore, sessions are taught in various ways. She has students bring their own laptops which is used for visual learners as well as hands-on learners. Also, she is articulate and communicates clearly for the audio learners.
The teachers profiled in “Unforgettable Miss Bessie”, “My Favorite Teacher”, and “And the Orchestra Played On” are remembered and admired by the narrators. Miss Bessie, Miss Hattie, and Mr. K. possessed significant qualities that made them remarkable educators. They inspired and encouraged students. They only wanted the best for their students and prepared them for their futures, enabling them to overcome difficulties in school. Besides the content of their subject matter these educators their taught students to believe that their lives and future all depends from themselves: whether they would choose the clean asphalt road or dirty, bumpy one.
She explained positive parts about being a teacher as being able to do what you love with growing children. As children go through stages of development, it is a good feeling to see what they are going to become in the future. She explains the bond she has with her students as one of the greatest feelings in the world. In early childhood, being their first teacher can have a major impact on how well they are going to do. Being able to create a good well-educated start to education is important. She explained that she wants to be able to educate children in the best way she can because the outcome of seeing them succeed is amazing.
She was unapologetic about treating her students, especially her honors ones, like adults. She was strict about plagiarism and demanded our full efforts. Within our social studies curriculum, she found ways to infuse valuable life lessons and talk
I have always found Ms. Branson to be committed to helping our student and any teacher that requests her help. She helped facilitate our study club at Otis for the 5th, 6th and 7th graders for the last year we had the 7th and 8th graders at our elementary schools. She always began by creating relationships with all students she worked with by praising their successes and
“One of the best teachers I have had the pleasure of working with,” Principal Curtiss Tolefree of Washington Middle School confided in me about 6th grade English teacher, Heather Ruha, as I crossed the threshold of her classroom for the very first time.
Throughout my high school career, a teacher that has had an impact on my life consists of Michael Sherwin. He is my Advanced Placement Government and Advanced Placement U.S. History teacher. Mr. Sherwin proves to be prominent in my high school career because his lectures in class are always enjoyable and very comprehensive. He is very knowledgeable on the subjects that he teaches and he is able to provide insight on countless topics. As his student, he is the reason that I have taken the initiative to partake in much more difficult classes throughout high school.
The atmosphere she created in her classroom was unlike any teacher I’d ever had. If there’s one thing I could say, her class was never boring. Whether she was wearing a witch hat waving around a plastic sword – in correlation to Macbeth, or jamming out with an air guitar to Iron Maiden - pertaining to Dante’s Inferno. She could include anyone’s interest to make sure learning was fun for everyone. The love and compassion she has for teaching radiates off of
Mrs. Rowe, the Assistant Principal, has “trained teachers and taught students in Benin, West Africa; taught in an integrated program for at-risk students in Los Alamos, New Mexico; started a program for at-risk students in Mahopac, New York; and taught AP, Honors, special ed., at-risk, and low-level readers in the Cherry Creek School District.” (Aurora Academy, 2013)
I have known Sarah for approximately three years. I had the pleasure of observing Sarah as a student in my class here at NAU. Ms. Albanna has modeled the requisite characteristics of continual engagement, effective inter-personal skills and leadership.
I like that she speaks her mind, she does not sugar coat the truth. I think if I let my students speak their minds I would be able to help them more because sometimes students are afraid to ask questions and I want my students to feel comfortable when they are in my class.
Ms. Castrovinci when asked about how she got her start in education helped me realize how she developed a good rapport with her students while maintaining a high level of accountability. In my observation of Ms. Castrovici, she makes every effort to give her students chances to complete make up work and late work. Her strategies were consistent with her beliefs about herself. She believed that in order to make people feel comfortable you must treat them as the individuals that they are. She mentions “We may be members of different races of people, from different cultures and backgrounds, but we are all people. “ She never lets situations escalate into major problems. She had nothing but high expectations for all of her students. She never relents in her pursuit to make her students see their potential and live up to it. She is a teacher that I would thoroughly enjoy working with again. I feel that learn a great deal from her and would utilize her as a mentor in my future teaching career. Her attitude is always positive and she genuinely cares about her students which I truly admire. In the end, I really enjoyed this field observation, experience Ms. Castrovinci was a great example of a teacher, I will strive to be because at the end of the day your influence can be impactful to these students for many years to
