Fifth Graders, I found out how really smart they are and can be.
Pros: school has always been fun for me.
Cons: the year ended early for me.
My day included working with 5th grade students teaching them English and Spanish Reading. I taught Social Studies as well. My students beamed from the work they created and the skills they discovered. The management team was always there to watch the work performed by both Teacher and student.
The hardest part of the job was losing a student to death. He was ill only 2 weeks and passed away. This was very difficult for all involved, especially the family. However, I did become close friends with the family. I learned many valuable lessons at Sheldon, but the most enjoyable one was working with ten year old students. They are exciting, beaming, and always ready to see what they can accomplish.
