Moravian Academy Lower School: My first field experience was at Moravian Academy. I was placed into Mrs. Carter’s first grade classroom. Throughout this experience, I was able to work with the first graders on their homework and help them complete deskwork. While at Moravian Academy, I helped the first graders design personal PowerPoint slides pertaining to a certain story they read. Overall, my experience at Moravian Academy was excellent. Although I am a Secondary Education Major, I loved working with the children.
Miller Heights Elementary: My experience at Miller Heights was extremely similar to the one at Moravian Academy. At Miller Heights, I was placed into Mrs. Ternosky’s first grade classroom. Different from my first experience, I helped the students with their reading. I taught the children about phonetics and helped them apply the theories while reading. In this classroom, I could not ask for better-behaved children. They were always so polite and a pleasure to work with.
During the summer of 2010, I worked at a
summer camp in
Washington D.C. At Headfirst, I worked with six and seven year olds.
the day we would read, play sports, go on nature walks, and complete
craft projects. Aside from Headfirst, I tutored a seven year old. I
with phonetics once a week. We mostly focused on the long and short
sounds. Even though I was working with elementary aged students, I
working with any student of any age. Teaching is my passion; it does
discriminate on age.
