What is your teaching experience so far?
I had a P.A.I.N.T internship last year at the Child and Family Study Center, in the Why Room. This semester, I am back at the CFSC in the Why room and also the Wonder Room! Before P.A.I.N.T, I have had experience in schools in the Dominican Republic and England. I have also worked at a childcare center in Eau Claire and have had practicum/ lab experiences for my ECE classes.
What are you looking forward to about the class you will be teaching?
I am looking forward to being back in the Why Room to help the children build on the skills they learned last semester and also getting experience with a new age group in the Wonder Room! From what I can tell so far, the children are very creative, and I am looking forward to doing some fun projects with them this semester.
What do you hope to learn/gain from this experience?
I hope to learn more about the developmental differences between 3 and 4 year olds through my lesson planning and being able to adapt those lessons accordingly. I think I will learn a lot about myself and my teaching style this semester and I am very excited about that!
