Documents from My First Teaching Practicum
Field Experience: My First Reflection
I was required to write a reflection that highlighted some of my thoughts, insights and experiences early on in my first practicum. I feel that this document is very unique, as it is a rare and special glance into how I was feeling and what I was thinking about after my second full day of being in the school...something that can never be repeated...
Field Experience: My Final Report
As a final project for my practicum experience, I had to compile and write a reflective report on my most profound insights and overall experience being a pre-service teacher at two different middle schools. I chose to call it "Life in Schools: Experiences and Metacognitive Provocations from my First Teaching Practicum."
Field Experience: My Field Instructor's Evaluation
This document is my summative evaluation, as completed by my field instructor, for my work during my first field placement. Although it does not have any written comments, I wanted to include it as part of my portfolio, as it represents some of the first steps of success I taken in my professional teaching journey.
