Initially, when I began this project, I applied to a school which I went to called Abington Senior High School. I wanted to observe at this school, so I could see my old teachers and learn from them again. Unfortunately, that did not happen. When I applied, I provided the school with all the necessary clearances and I sent an email to the head of the education department as they instructed. However, the department head did not respond to any of my emails.
After I waited for two weeks, I decided to apply to other schools. I remembered a school near my house called The Nexus school. On the school's website, I found the email address of the director of the school, Vicki West. I emailed Mrs. West asking if I could observe at her school. The next day, I received her email. In it, she graciously invited me to her school to observe. Her only condition was that I bring my clearances. Fortunately, I had the clearances on hand, I brought them over later that week. I was able to work out a schedule with Mrs. West of which I would come to the school on Monday and Friday at 1:30 pm to 3:00pm and observe. That Friday I began to observe at The Nexus school and the journey to complete my hours began.
Immediately when I began observing at the school Nexus I noticed that it was different from any other schools that I had been in before. It’s building was small and there were only twenty-six students at the school. This was different from the schools which I had attended before which had

My observation for the spring semester was placed at Pine Richland High School. I was able to watch over John Dolphin’s twelfth grade British literature course. John Dolphin has been teaching at Pine Richland for the past eighteen years. I went to observe his class three times. Two out of three of those visits I was able to be at the school all day long to really get the feel of the way it is like to be at the school all day and seeing the difference of his eight classes. Throughout my time there I learned different strategies on how to keep the students involved, the way that a school of this size is ran, and the difference of how John taught compared to my previous observation teacher.
Over the summer, I was required to complete my coursework and submit evidence of completion of my degree. Background checks and licensing paperwork was also completed. Upon completing these requirements, a permanent contract was signed. I was provided opportunities to interview with three schools. Each school offered me a position. I informed the Chesapeake Public School’s human resource officer which school and position I wanted. I was thrilled to have some many options and so much control in the selection
I decided to contact a teacher, Nancy Niedermayer at a local elementary school. I reached out to her through email. I introduced myself and explained that I was a graduate student at Liberty University. I also explained the assignment to her and asked if she would be willing to meet me for an interview and the subject matter. She promptly returned my email and agreed. The interview was then set for Friday, September 9, 2016 at 2:30pm. Our meeting place was her classroom at Lakeside Elementary.
From 9th grade to 10th grade, I attended a small, public choice school called Federal Way Public Academy. They accepted students on a lottery basis, and had a total student population of approximately 300 students, grades 6-10. It is a school that is very well known for it’s college-level academics, lack of music and physical education classes, and intense homework load. Regardless, I wanted to attend that school since I was in 5th grade, but wasn’t accepted until 9th. When 9th grade finally came, I met the group of people I would soon call family.

This situation could have been different if the petitioner would have responded in a timely manner. Instead, the petitioner did not accept the notice to appear and sent the notice back to the postal service. If the petitioner had moved then they should have forward their address. No assisting that the HISD provided to the petitioner was good enough for the petitioner. I believe if the petitioner would have observed the progress that their child was making compared to the progress before the BSC classroom and counseling. They would have not tried to sue the school
Last week I asked my contact at the Anchorage School district to send out an email to all the ELL teacher to see if anyone was available to assist me with my field practicum. As of this email no one has responded. Since this month has lot of holidays were school is not in session I became a bit concerned. So I reached out to an English teacher at a private high school who is willing to let me observe her classes. Though the school does not have an English Language Learners program they do have students from Nigeria, Korea, Philippines, and native Alaskan villages. May I please have permission to observe in Mrs. Edmonds class to fulfill the 15 hours for the field practicum?
For four long years I felt as if my high school was in a different world in of itself. I had spent that time interacting with an extensive amount of groups, or “cliques”, and getting to know what they do. Through my experiences, I had begun to realize what made this “subculture” high school of sorts run like it did. High school is an incredibly dynamic time for people, and I had changed as a person dramatically from my freshman to senior year. Like many, my freshman year was quite awkward, as remnants of my middle school self remained with me. As time went on, how, I talked to more people and grew out of my passive and shy personality. This did not just randomly happen without reason though. I began to learn and realize who I was and whom I enjoyed talking to in school, which explained why I spent so much time socializing with multiple kinds and groups of people. Everyone’s concept of “normal” was different, and high school was where I learned that lesson and will never forget.
This was my childhood dream come true starting on Tuesday September 8, 2015. As I finished my required field experience hours on Thursday the 10th, I couldn’t resist and had to return back to my new set of children. Immediately within the first few minute of me being there I built such great relationships with these loving and adorable children. Mrs. Poland the teacher I had the honors to observe was an amazing role model for me. She modeled extremely well what a teacher should be especially working with ESE students. Approximately three of them were in the process of mainstream but on a trial and error basis. I decided to complete my observation hours at Lewis E. Wadsworth Elementary School here in Palm Coast. According to Old.flaglerlschools,
On Tuesday, March 1, 2015, I applied to Foundation for student Achievement program. I heard this program is amazing from my best friends and some of the teachers this school. After a few days, I got an email from this program that you are accepted to this program and I was so happy about getting into the program. On Tuesday, March 15, 2016, was my first day of this program with my best friend. On my first day, I met lots of people like Gaskin, Glasgow, Maclean,
Before I was able to enter main high school program at Fairmont, they placed me into an ESL program due to my frog-like English. The program was placed in a
During the Fall Semester I was required to visit Easterling Primary School in Marion, South Carolina for an education course. I was filled with joy because I was once a student in Marion County and I was excited to view school from a different standpoint. I was scheduled to visit the school every Tuesday in the Month of October, but due to Hurricane Matthew we lost a few weeks and I had to go back for two weeks in November. I had the pleasure to be placed with Mrs. Johnson, a Special Education Teacher in a Self-Contained Classroom at Easterling. Mrs. Johnson has been teaching for a total of twenty nine years and has multiple certifications and degrees in the education field. Overall Easterling is a fairly large school and it
Parents, whether they're ready to go, financial aid, career choices, or to simply just get away, are all things that can influence a persons choice to go to college. Take parents for example, some of our parents may or may not have gone to college. For those parents who have, they would want to push their kids to be like them. For those who haven't, they would want to push their kids to be better than they were, to have a better education, and ultimately, a better job to take care of their own kids someday. They sometimes put too much pressure on their kids to go to college that their kids feel like that's their only option.
I am a student at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and I am contacting you to confirm Briarwood Academy as my clinical site to observe for my Child and Family Development class. I signed up using the online system that is offered through the Office of Field Experiences here at UNC Charlotte. I wanted to touch base with you to establish which classroom teacher will allow me to complete my 20 observation hours. I preferably would like to observe a pre-K classroom since my professor would like for us to focus on this particular age group. I am currently registered as a CMS volunteer and have updated my file.
