I have learned so much in class, and now I feel I am ready to get the on the ground training that any successful teacher needs, as a student teacher in a real classroom.
I have soared with pride. Many studies have explored effective tools, experiences, and strategies in which to teach students fractions.
I learned that respect and confidence will go a long way in terms of connecting and maintaining relationships with your students, which does help the classroom atmosphere and performance. I would like to work on spending more time frontloading information so that I do not have those issues in the future.
Classroom management was another area which I learned a lot about during student teaching.
My thoughts going forward… My observations of classroom management are that most problems in the classroom can be eliminated using two tools: numerous, short activities and set routines. At the beginning of the semester, I was glued to the front of the room.
