My teaching experiences have allowed me to work with students from a variety of backgrounds. In my student teaching at Deshler High School, I worked with a group of students who were very diverse both culturally and linguistically. Because I consider myself a lifelong learner, I was constantly reflecting on my work with these students. I was consistently collecting data, reviewing the student’s progress and trying to find ways to increase it. I used current research and information obtained from my peers at the school to determine how I could best help my students succeed. In my current position at Forest High School, I am working with a group of students who have very diverse learning styles and needs. The classroom that I work in is an integrated classroom, with several students needing remedial services. My aim is that each student in the class should be given the opportunity to reach his or her fullest potential. Through my experience in this classroom, I have gained the ability to modify lessons and provide accommodations for all of my students who need them.
I have a very hands on and active teaching style. I find that incorporating movement, music, and visual aids into my lessons that my students can more easily grasp the concepts that I am presenting.
