Teaching Experience

I have worked with children throughout my high school, college, and university careers. I have coached children in athletic settings such as figure skating and softball, as well as completed placements at a variety of age levels. 

Practical Experience:

March-May 2005

I did a 6 week placement in a Grade 6 classroom, with a focus on teaching drama. This was part of an arts/theatre based course I was taking in Grade 12. I planned and taught drama lessons, as well as assisted the teacher with various other classroom duties. I accompanied the class on a field trip and planned a unit on a book they had been reading.

October 2005 and May 2006

I completed two 1 week placements in a Grade 3 class as part of a university course. I observed the teacher and students, and made notes on things such as classroom organization/management, and curriculum approaches. I also helped with classroom activities and marking.

May -June 2010

I did a 5 week placement at Ontario Early Years North Bay. I was responsible for supervision of children (parents were also present), planning and teaching classes for children and parents, and working with co-workers on a variety of activities and tasks. I gained experience teaching children from birth to 8 years of age. This was a very different setting from a typical classroom or school environment, but I gained many valuable skills and ideas.

July - August 2010

Following my placement with Ontario Early Years, I was asked to Co-Teach a kindergarten prep course for 4-5 year old beginning school in september who were not developmentally ready. This course provided a classroom setting in which the children could develop necessary skills and have social interaction prior to entering the classroom. I was responsible for planning and teaching kindergarten level lessons, and supervising the children throughout the sessions.

October - December 2010

I completed a 6 week practicum in a Grade 5/6 class. I was responsible for working along side the classroom teacher in all of her responsibilities, as well as planning an teaching a variety of lessons each day. During the last two weeks of the practicum I was responsible for teaching 75-100% of the school day. I taught lessons in Language, Art, and Music. I planned and implemented full units in Math and Social Studies.

During my time at the school, I also took part in a PLC, staff meetings, and planned and led an assembly on literacy strategies.

February-March 2011

I am currently completing a 7-week practicum in a Grade 8 classroom.

Summary

I am a Bachelor of Education student currently working to complete my degree. My graduation date will be June 2011, after which I intend to secure employment for the 2011/2012 school year. I am eager to enter the teaching profession, and look forward to the experience and knowledge I will gain when I am finally in the classroom as a qualified teacher. I am open to Grade/Level, as I would like to experience teaching a variety of age groups.

Career Goals
