Student Teacher

Beecher Magnet School

Beecher Magnet School was the second location in my student teaching semester and since I had already had the opportunity to build up and practice classroom management, I took on greater responsibilities and controls from its onset.  Beecher was an urban environment with a very diverse student population and a high incorporation of students with special needs into the general classroom.  I had the opportunity to work under a wonderful teacher named Alyssa Lockwood and had first-hand experience dealing with special needs students, extremely violent students, unmotivated students, drug/liquor using parents, and had to on a daily basis act as a mediator between energetic students.  This environment provided me an unique experience to demonstrate my knowledge of classroom management that was not as necessary in the Cheshire classroom.

Student Teacher

Highland Elementary School

During the Spring semester of 2010, I took part in the final portion of my education: student teaching.  Highland Elementary was the first of two locations I attended for my student teaching experience and this location provided me the opportunity to work in a suburban environment with a variety of technology available.  Highland was a K-6 elementary school and I was placed in Eric Brinkman's 6th grade classroom.  In this setting, I slowly took over the classroom until I was entirely running every aspect of classroom from planning to implementation.
