Student Teaching Reflection: Friday, April 24, 2015

Today was the end of what felt like a short week. Although I'm exhausted and tired, mainly because I've been staying up late every night to finish my thesis, this week seemed to go by pretty quickly and it was enjoyable. I'm glad it's the…

Student Teaching Reflection: Thursday, April 23, 2015

Today was another successful day of teaching for me at Goodwin-Frazier Elementary School. Again, I feel like I handled the classes well, delivered quality instruction, improved my management skills, and became more confident as an elementary…

Student Teaching Reflection: Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Today was the last day of S.T.A.A.R. Testing for this week and the end of the crazy schedule changes for the most part. As for schedule changes, today was exactly like yesterday with the older students having art classes in the afternoon…

Today was the last gym day of the week. I am so glad to be done with the same exact thing over and over and over. I have managed the same gym class 24 times in a row! I watched students run laps around the track while I marked their hands…

Today continued the Talent Show practice in which all of the students are either practicing for the Talent Show or partaking in a gym day during their art classes, but it was actually kind of an eventful day! I did actually get to teach…

Student Teaching Reflection: Tuesday, April 14, 2015

I feel like I really don't have much to report again. Because of the Talent Show this Friday, today was another Talent Show practice day in which the music teacher called all of the students to the gym during their Specials (music, gym,…

Student Teaching Reflection: Monday, April 13, 2015

This week there won't be as much to reflect on as the Talent Show is this Friday. Because the Talent Show is this Friday, the music teacher is pulling all of the students this week from all of their Specials classes (Music, Gym, Library,…
