I was born in Manhattan, New York but relocated to Dunwoody, Georgia when I was seven years old. I’ve been in Georgia ever since. My hobbies include cooking, reading books, watching movies, and listening to music. I’m more of a stay at home kind of person due to me being very shy. I enjoy becoming a teacher and have figured out through my practicums, that Language Arts is my favorite subject to teach. Language Arts gives me the opportunity to read different books and derive “out of the box” activities that are fun for younger kids. My goals for this practicum is to become more efficient in writing lesson plans, be more fluid in teaching my lesson, be more confident when teaching my lesson, and become better at gathering a wide variety of content research for lessons. I intend to reach all of these goals and more through hard work and discipline.

While at Georgia Southern I have been in three different classrooms so far for three separate practicums. The most recent was for Methods 1 at Screven County Elementary. My clinical supervisor was Mrs. Sharon A. and it was a first grade class. During this experience I realized that I am more comfortable with the younger kids. With this knowledge I was able to be more proactive in the classroom and make the experience as a whole more enjoyable. I learned how to communicate with other teachers in a more professional manner about possible teaching strategies, activity ideas, etc. I was also given the opportunity to work with an inclusive student who had server behavioral problems but was at a third grade reading level in the first grade. This led to me learning a lot of differentiation in instruction through being in this classroom. The students that were lower level learners were more receptive to the content that I taught due to me modifying activities so they would be engaging and not so overwhelming. Those particular students reinforced why I want to teach. I've always felt that teaching is the most certain way to help a child succeed and to see these students do so well on assessments that included content that I taught or helped teach just made me smile. That feeling will continue to overshadow any bad days I may have as a pre-service or in-service teacher.
