At this point, I have been on three Field Experiences and am in the process of completing my fourth. My first Field Experience was at Clearview Elementary School. I was in an inclusive 4th grade math class. I was able to work one on one with students as well as in small groups. My second Field Experience was in an 11th grade Honors Pre-Calculus class at Freedom High School. During this Field Experience, I was again able to work one on one with students. My third Field Experience was in a 6th grade math class at Northeast Middle School. During this Field Experience, I was able to work one on one with students as well as in small groups. My co-op also gave me a lot of ideas for projects that I could use when I become a teacher. During this Field Experience, I also taught my first whole class lesson. My current Field Experience is in an Emotional Support classroom at Nitschmann Middle School. Many of these students either have a learning disability or do not have a positive male role model in their lives. I have been able to work one on one with the students. This Field Experience is also different from all my other Field Experiences and I believe that it will be a good experience for me to have. I have enjoyed all of my Field Experiences and look forward to the day when I will be able to teach my own class.
During my Freshman year of college, I became a
tutor in the America Reads organization at Moravian College. America Reads is a
federal work study approved program of academic tutoring.
College students are placed in local elementary schools and
community organizations to enhance their after school
enrichment programs. Since
joining America Reads, I have tutored at Northeast Ministries
in Bethlehem, PA. Most
days, I work with multiple students to help them complete
their homework. Once
the kids have finished their homework, I will read with them. I have enjoyed
working for America Reads and often look forward to going to
