Educational Experiences
Farmersville Elementary School
Farmersville Elementary School

I worked as a pre-student teacher at Farmersville Elementary School in the art classroom with grades K-5. They worked on a variety of projects differing in mediums and subject matter. I taught several lessons and helped the students to come up with their own ideas through skillful motivational dialogue, rather than offering them solid examples of how their finished product should look.

At William Penn Elementary I worked with students in grades K-5 in the art classroom. They created many projects with differing themes and mediums. I taught several lessons and got to know a wide range of cultural students in this open concept school. Many students here needed extra encouragement in order to work to their full potential. It was my responsibility to make sure that the student's stayed interested and commited to the artwork they were creating.

One of my field experiences was at Liberty High School in two ceramics classes; one advanced and one novice. I was able to demonstrate how to make a clay rattle and also designed and presented a project making cultural clay masks in order to unify a very culturally diverse school.

My first field experience was helping out in a 3rd grade classroom at Spring Garden Elementary, specifically with one child with special needs. I helped her to complete math problems by drawing visual examples. I also guided the other children in the class with work in the general areas.

I work at Cambridge Day School caring for children from infancy to kindergarten, but mostly three year-olds. It is my responsibility to teach them early knowledge and courtesy in preparation for Elementary School. Students complete an art project daily that teaches motor skills such as; holding a crayon/ paintbrush, coloring in the lines, and using scissors and glue. Students get to know the tactility of play-doh and finger paint.
