Student taught in a Physical Education setting that included teaching 3rd through 5th grade along with high school physical education.


I greatest accomplishment for this semester was when a student, who is in a wheelchair, wanted to be my partner because I was his favorite teacher that he has. It just goes to show you that people appreciate who you are and the values you have as a teacher.

Learning experience

The greatest lesson I learned from student teaching is that you have to be ready for whatever is thrown your way no matter what it is.

What advice would you give?

Show up to teach everyday with passion and put forth your full effort into educating those students so they remember you for being a positive role model in their life.
