Interaction with students with the class room, at luch, hallway
History High School Teacher (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 21, 2018
As a whole students begin class at 8:00am and leave 2:20 (eight periods a day). I teach, have counseling sessions with students, parent out reach, and department meeting on various topics 2x a week.Topic include data, student progress lesson planning, placement of students for regents prep. I have 2 prep periods and Lunch time off.
What I have learned from my experience is student learning styles and how to diversify my instruction to fit their needs, Behavioral strategies to cope with student behavioral issue.. Moving seats, counseling, outreach to parents, ect... Professional development classes also give me cutting edge tools to work more efficiently and affectively.
Management of the classes is determined by rules set by the school and class room. Rubrics ( for performance tasks, classwork, presentations, participation, Homework...) are given to students to show how rigorous they are learning.
The hardest part of the job is having to redirect students to focus on the task at hand. Having to see student not achieve the goals set forth by the school and class. seeing students fighting in and around school. Having to correct and redirect student behavior.
The most enjoyable part of teaching is seeing growth of student academically as well as mentally. It is such a joy to see students learn objectives of the lesson, receive high marks, and graduate onto college.
