Currently, I feel that I have come a long way since day one in both classroom management and lesson planning. Before teaching this class, I had no Idea where to even begin with a lesson plan. I had never seen a lesson plan before, and now I am writing one every other week. With my classroom management, I feel that I have learned some new techniques to keep the attention of the students while demonstrating. The first day I taught the class, I was so nervous and now I have definitely become more confident in the classroom as a teacher rather than a student.
I am looking forward to learning how to create lesson plans and how to fully teach a class. I want to be able to keep the attention of the kids and to make sure they still have fun while creating their art projects. I want to be confident in the way that I am teaching. I believe that being a part of the P.A.I.N.T. program will really help me get comfortable in a classroom setting as a teacher and not the student.
