My Educational Experiences

Thank you for taking the time to visit my educational experience web page! Up to date, I have completed over 120 hours in the classroom for field experiences. I have also done tutoring through the America Reads program at local elementary schools. I have been in classrooms with a wide variety of students which would include diverse learners, learners with disabilities, and even AP students.

Broughal

In the fall of 2011 I completed my first field experience at Broughal Middle School. I was assigned to Mr. Miller’s 6th grade ESL and Language Arts classes. During my time at Broughal, I worked closely with students and observed their learning habits. It was a great experience to work with younger students who are learning English as a second language. The wide variety of diverse learners helped me better understand that each student is unique and their own individual.

Lincoln
Elementary
School,
Bethlehem, PA

In the fall and winter of 2011-2012 I did tutoring at Lincoln Elementary School in the Bethlehem School District. I was in a program run through America Reads where I would go to this school a few days during the week whether it was during the day or after school and help students work on reading. After they would read, I would help them with any homework they had. This was additional experience and great for me because it gave me more one on one tutoring help for future occurrences. lincoln

In the fall and winter of 2011-2012 I did tutoring at Calypso Elementary School in the Bethlehem School District. This was also a program run through America Reads and generally the same concept as what I did at Lincoln. I went to this school only after school and it was basically a homework club. The students would work on homework for one hour and then we would have a 15-minute activity period. It continued to help me with my tutoring skills.


Liberty
High School,
Bethlehem, PA

In the spring of 2012 I did my second field experience at Liberty High School. This time I was finally in a place where I could see myself in a few years. I was in Ms. Smith’s 10th grade history class. I sat in two of the same periods where the subject was AP U.S. History. I helped Ms. Smith prepare lessons and was very engaged in group work and discussions. I learned a lot from this experience and hope to continue the strategies I learned into my high school classroom one day. liberty

In the fall of 2012 I did my most recent field experience at East Hills Middle School. I have moved to the 2nd stage of tutoring. I am tutoring in Ms. Amato’s learning support class. I sit in with learners with disabilities during Math, Science, and Social Studies periods. I have led multiple classroom lessons during my time at East Hills. I am finally getting the opportunity to put all the strategies I have been learning over the past three years into the classroom as the lead teacher.
