Ms Dalzell…

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.ย 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*ย 

“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.

  2. Hey are using WordPress for your blog platform?

    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you need any coding knowledge to make
    your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

  3. I absolutely love your website.. Excellent colors & theme.
    Did you make this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m looking to create my
    very own website and would like to find out where you got this from or just what
    the theme is named. Kudos!

    • Hi! Thank you so much! I use one of the wordpress themes provided, but customize it myself with the colour scheme and images ๐Ÿ™‚ Best of luck with your website!!


  4. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long
    as I provide credit and sources back to your website? My website is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my users would really benefit from some of the information you provide here.
