Each of us can succeed in a wide range of subjects, whether it be a small fraction of topics or an endless variety of them. I have been blessed with the ability to succeed in a wide range of conventional academic subjects instead of a few academic subjects. Consequently, they are mathematics, history, and science-related academic subjects because they have always been the academic areas, where they do not require enormous amounts of effort to fully comprehend them. These subjects have always been the parts of my education that I can grasp after listening to my academic teachers explaining them to me. Although it 's hard to pinpoint what factors contributed to my academic successes in these subjects, there are a handful of factors that did allow me the opportunity to excel in these subjects. They are excellent teachers, excellent time management skills, and the combination of perseverance and having a strange sense of curiosity.
It is truly a blessing to meet a ray of teachers, who

Consequently, I have always been able to comprehend these type of subjects, but these factors were the determining factor between just passing a class to excelling in the class. If it had been excellent teaching from teachers, such as Mrs. Winston, I would certainly be able to grasp concepts as fast as I could with them than without them. Also, if I did not have my graphic organizer to help me time manage my busy subject, then I would certainly be missing assignment deadlines left and right. I also am at a loss if I did not have an abnormal level of perseverance and curiosity. Nevertheless, I am truly grateful for the ability to exceed in mathematics, history, and science related subjects as well as the factors contributing to my

    I know the road ahead will be long and difficult, but it will be worth it once I get to the end. I know teaching is my passion because I have talked about working with children since I was young. It is cliché, but I truly want to be able to make a difference in as many lives as I can. I have found comfort in the fact that even if I end up disliking teaching in the classroom, I know there are many other options out there for me. Museum education and government jobs with ODJFS are just two options of many that I could get into and still have a positive impact on many children’s lives.…

    Although I did have some lessons that were not that successful I found this to be my most successfully applied plan and activity. I credit this to my choice of using direct instruction as I felt it was appropriate and worked effectively with the class I was teaching. Research has found that direct instruction has the ability to, increase motivation, is an appropriate method for knowledge attainment and assisted in closing the knowledge gap between students (Glogger-Frey, et al. 2015 p. 83). When applying this lesson, I saw most these aspects reflected, especially the motivation of the class.…

    I believe that our team-teaching lesson plan went as planned. Although there are some areas of improvement, the overall experience was something that I have never done before. I have taken the feedback that the other group members have given to better understand what I would do if I were to ever teach a team-teaching lesson again. I think that this was a great experience as I gained knowledge and a better understanding on how to go about teaching a tam-teaching lesson. Making the lesson plan as a team was very fast and efficient.…

    They are the most effective way to get all of your students involved, formatively assess them, engage them in critical thinking and much more. After gaining practicum experience, the “Thumbs-Up When Ready and Processing Cards” is a TPT that I find especially useful. When I am teaching, I find it difficult to gauge when my students are ready to share. By incorporating a simple thumbs-up or a fun processing card, their readiness becomes very clear to me. The other TPT that I am eager to use in my classroom is the “Hold Ups.” These are a fun, fast way to see where students are at.…

    6. This question, like question 4, is hard for me to answer because I don’t feel that there was a teaching strategy that was non-helpful. The weekly discussions were great and I enjoyed being able to conduct my responses as like a letter written to the ‘teacher’. I took my peers responses to my post very seriously and tried to understand their point of view. Again, I thought all assignments were beneficial to my learning and I feel like I have learned a great deal of information.…

    My Classroom Analysis

    Successful differentiation is all about proper planning. If a lesson is well planned and well organized, the chances of it being difficult or going awry are significantly reduced. For me, one of the simplest ways to differentiate my lessons has been in regards to individualized pacing. Making this possible, and manageable, took a few years, however, I have it down to a workable system that allows students to work at their own pace, to an extent, without creating chaos in my classroom or adding undue stress to my workload. While I believe in students having the time they need to successfully complete an assignment, I am also a firm believer in hard deadlines and learning time management skills.…

    I had all the ideas of what I wanted to do but never knew how to write it on paper. This class has helped me now to have a better understanding of how to write a plan. I might not be the best lesson plan writer but I know for a fact that am far better than I was before this class. This class has brought out my strengths and weaknesses of being a teacher. My strength is that I’m a very friendly person and because of that it help me to interact better with my students.…

    On those days, it’s imperative to not give up on yourself and remind everyone that even though it may not have been our best day, it’s important that we remember that we are all talented, and very fortunate to even be where we are. This is crucial to remember in school because, just like cheer, sometimes you have an off day, but that doesn’t mean you should give up. One bad test score isn’t a reflection of how intelligent you are, it just means next time you work harder. Ultimately, I have learned so much these…
