Reality has hit…my adventure has truly begun!
Today I entered my practicum school not only as a student, but as a preservice teacher.
I could feel eyes full of curiosity on me, as Mrs Williams introduced me, “Ms Dalzell” to her 3rd grade students…I was to become a member of their class.
Thanks to a little hand in the air… and a “can you help me with this”… my nerves began to settle. I was seen as someone who could help… and during that short period of explanation.. I was a teacher.
So… feel free to follow along as my adventure as a student teacher unfolds…
Lessons of the day:
*Obviously not all, but these ones warmed my heart*
“Make connections with the students first, and teaching will come” Mrs. W
Respect your learning… and respect the learning of others. Being a teacher is about allowing students to take ownership of their learning and education.
