Today, March 12, 2018, is my first day as student teacher. I am going to be student teacher at the UPR Elementary School.
I arrived early enough to drink a coffee before 7:30 a.m., when we were scheduled to start our teaching practicum. The classes start at 8:00 a.m.
One of the first things I was informed by my cooperator teacher, teacher Richard, once I got into the classroom is that I am going to be giving ESL classes to the third grade, after noon. However, I still observed the 8:00 a.m. fourth grade class, it was about adjectives. I also attended a meeting to participate in a research about the perceptions of speaking English among the students at the school and attended a meeting with the school director for all the student teachers of the UPR Elementary School.
Here I am, in the entrance of the school with all my student practicum classmates.
Here I am with my teacher practicum supervisor, the professor Cristina Guerra, and my ESL student teacher classmates.
Today had been an amazing day! Let’s keep growing!
