I spent 7 years at The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS where I studied English, Special Education and Elementary Education. I learned a lot of skills not just in class, but also in various schools around the area. We did multiple clinics where we had to develop lesson plans to teach grades K-6. I also student taught a Kindergarten and 3rd grade class, where I wrote unit plans and made a lot of hands on materials to make learning fun for the students. I also tutored a 6th grade student in Language Arts, where I had to assess her progress. I learned and administered various assessments in fluency and site words. In Special Education I learned how to write an IEP and I was able to actually sit in and watch one take place. I also learned how to write and administer a co-teaching lesson. Lastly I developed many pre-test and post-test assessments to see how much the students have learned.
I am more of a hands-on teacher. I like to have a lot of visuals as well. Majority of the classrooms I had been in did nothing but worksheets for each subject area, and I felt as though students were bored with that. When students interact with what you are teaching, then they will enjoy what they are learning a lot more.
