Teaching Reflection - Secondary Placement
This student teaching placement was definitely a learning experience. I really was able to get a feel of what it is like to run a classroom and all that entails. I learned a lot about planning and classroom management. I also became much more aware of all of the extra parts of teaching, especially at a high school level, includes. Throughout the placement I improved my time management when it came to grading a preparing for lessons. I really enjoyed getting to know all of the students and taking time to help them one-on-on during class or when they came to work in the studio. I wish I could have slowed down a bit to make it more fun for both me and the students. I feel as if I adapted the serious style of my cooperating teacher rather than making more how I would want my classes run.
