My personal best Power Clean

Just finished my first placement during Student Teaching.

I just finished my first placement student teaching at the high school level. It was interesting experience. My cooperating teacher didn't set that good of an example for me and was not the type of professional I strive to be. He was rarely present during the classes I taught, frequently left the building during the school day for coffee of an early lunch. Often times would disappear while I taught his classes and did his grading and duties. Frustrated, but it gave me experience to improve classroom management and teaching students at an older and higher ability level.

Next, i'm going to be student teaching at an elementary level. My cooperating teacher is also the head coach with the softball team i've been helping coach. This program is very well respected and is very successful. The coach is capable to operate at the collegiate level.

I'm looking forward to the elementary (k-5) school and improving my skills as a teacher and role model.
