Nitschmann Middle School
|I had my
first field experience in Mr. Andreucci's 7th grade
science class. Working with Mr. Andreucci was a
experience because he had a very low le
vel class as well as an
"A-track" class. Seeing the different strategies he
used for different classes was very valuable to me.
He had a kind of teaching style where he was one
with the students and related to them very well,
which is why I think he rarely had any behavior
issues in his class. I taught a group activity using
M&M's and classifying objects.
field experience was with Mrs. Vazquez's 6th grade
math class at Broughal Middle School. This was truly
a special experience because I got to work with
students with disabilities and students who had many
issues in their home life. I really look up to Mrs.
Vazquez and her teaching style. Growing up in
Bethlehem, there was always a certain stigma about
Broughal that all the students were misbehaved.
However, Mrs. Vazquez set certain expectations with
her students and really treated them as adults, and
they gave her the respect back. It was my experience
at Broughal that really makes me want to teach
Freedom High School
High School I had two cooperating teachers. Mrs.
Evans was a math teacher and Mr. Schoeneberger was
the learning support teacher. This was probably the
most influential experience I had. Seeing classes
with students with IEP's was eye-opening. I learned
many strategies at Freedom to help students with
disabilities. On the other hand, I was also with an
Honors Algebra 2 class, so I really got to see the
juxtaposition and range of all the students I may
