Educational Experiences

Fountain Hill Elementary School

fountainhillMy first field experience at Moravian College took place at Fountain Hill Elementary School on the south side of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. I was placed in a second grade classroom where I was given the privelege to work with a handful of young students. While at Fountain Hill, I was not only given the opportunity to provide assistance to my students on a one-on-one basis, but also in large groups. I helped my students develop reading comprehension skills, math skills, and creative thinking skills.

Northeast Middle School

northeastMy second field experience took place at Northeast Middle School in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. While at Northeast, I was placed in an eight grade special education classroom. All of the students in the classroom that I worked in were learning disabled and had I.E.P.'s (Invidiualized Education Plan) that granted them accommodations. I provided the students with the one-on-one attention that they needed and was given the opportunity to teach a lesson on my own. While I was at Northeast, I also helped the students take the PSSA's (Pennsylvania System of School Assessment). I was responsible for reading and re-wording the test questions in ways that helped the students overcome their specific disabilities.

Nitschmann Middle School

I was placed in a very well-taught 7th grade classroom where I was given the priveledge of working with 3 girls with various learning disabilties. While the class worked on an assignment, I pulled my students aside to help them move along at their own pace.
