My name is Elyse and I will be starting my final semester of student teaching in a few weeks. I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in December 2012 and began the multiple subject teaching credential in January 2013. I am now in the final semester of the student teaching program and I recently found out I will be working in a third grade classroom.
Last semester, I did student teaching twice a week that focused on intervention and small group instruction. My placement was at a dual language school in a low socio-economic area. The program was a 50/50 program where one teacher taught in English for one day and the other teacher taught in Spanish the next day. It was a wonderful experience. I learned so much from the kids and my fabulous master teacher.
I started this blog because I want to share my journey in student teaching and in my first few years of teaching. It's going to be busy and scary and exciting and a total learning experience - so why not share it with the world!
Outside of teaching, I am also really into history and genealogy. I love cooking and going out to restaurants to try new food. I'm obsessed with Harry Potter. Most importantly, I am also planning my wedding for June 2014 and I can't wait to marry my best friend.
Until next time...
