|My first Field Experience at Moravian College was at William Penn Elementary School. I was in Mrs. Muth's kindergarten classroom where I had the opportunity to work with students with a variety of abilities. Being my first time in a classroom, It was a very eye opening experience but at the same time confirmed my love of teaching.|
|James Buchanan Elementary
|My second Field Experience was in Mr.
Bellucci's fourth grade class at James Buchanan Elementary School. I
visited Mr. Bellucci's class twice a week for ten weeks of the
semester. In this experience I was given the opportunity to teach two
lessons to the class. The first lesson I taught was a math lesson on
place value. I worked with the students to label and identify different
and the meanings behind them. The second lesson I taught
was a more hands-on lesson as we worked to build small baskets before
Thanksgiving. Both lesson were an interesting and exciting challenge
that helped me to grow as a teacher.
|East Hills Middle School
|My third field experience was located at East Hills Middle School in Mrs. Dutt's life skills classroom. This classroom experience was much different than my two prior as I was not only working with middle school students, but also 6th, 7th and 8th grade students all in the same classroom. During this experience I was able to facilitate many hands-on activities. Also, every Thursday, our class went out into the community as a part of class and this allowed the students to make real world connections with what they were learning in the classroom.|
