Today, I job shadowed Mrs. Cornwell to learn more about being a teacher. I learned a lot from her and I think that being a teacher is still something I want to do. Mrs. Cornwell had me work on a few projects, and help her in the classroom. I also had the chance to observe her while she taught, which set a very good example of how to interact with students and help them learn. Mrs. Cornwell told me about things that I never realized were part of being a teacher, like how hard it is to grade essays, the difficulty of making plans for when you are gone, and changing little things based on what group of kids you are dealing with. She also showed me a few websites and things that I might have to use on a daily basis if I become a teacher. I really found these things helpful.
This was a great learning experience to have, thank you Mrs. Cornwell!
