Chapter 10

I really enjoyed chapter 10. I felt much of the chapter reviewed and highlighted many of the things we learned over the past semester. I also enjoyed the teaching stories included in this chapter. The story of Jaime and her dedication to her students reminded me of the feelings many of us expressed as to why we were choosing the teaching profession. There is no doubt teaching can be wonderfully satisfying and rewarding. I greatly appreciated, "Tips for New Teachers" and have recorded this list…See More

Educational Link

http://www.kindergartenworks.com/classroom-management/12-tips-to-start-successful/This last chapter talked about classroom management and classroom community. I searched for an education link that particularly pertained to kindergarten classrooms, since that is what I hope to teach one day. This link gives some excellent ideas for setting procedures, rewards programs, and connecting with parents.  See More

Chapter 9

I found this chapter to be most interesting. The section on classroom management and classroom community was an extremely valuable lesson. I remember my elementary school days were times when teachers set all the classroom rules for everyone to follow. As I moved into middle and high school, I realize now this setting was much more one of a classroom community. Classroom rules and procedures were developed from a more collaborative effort. A setting of mutual respect developed and every student…See More

USF Learning Project

My question to the USF advisors related to a degree in Elementary Education as well as Exceptional Student Education.  Along with my desire to earn a degree in Elementary Education, I have always had an additional interest in working with special education students.  I was under the impression it would be best to earn a degree in elementary education and then add a minor in special education.  As a result of our USF blog, I learned it was actually two distinctly different degrees.  The…
