Now that I have started working full time as a student teacher, I plan to continue to be very active. Currently, I am continuing to work part time at the Consortium school where I completed my student teaching. Due to my interest in performance based schools, I am participating in the final assessments in order to better understand the process. I will be on a committee that will evaluate extensive presentations in order for students to pass into the next grade. Until then, I am aiding students in preparing for these rigorous presentations where they must answer a variety of questions on the spot to demonstrate their knowledge of the yearlong course.
I will continue to be open to new teaching techniques and assessments, as I know every student has different needs. Further, I plan to continue volunteering my time to incarcerated youth by facilitating spoken word poetry workshops during the summer. My goal for my first year of teaching is to incorporate my passion and knowledge about nutrition, meditation and yoga into my curriculum.
