Classroom Observation
I use to believe that being a teacher was going to be eight hours of teaching and being
with children. Being a teacher seemed to be the easiest career choice out there for me. After
viewing the students of all ages and levels, I have changed my opinion of teaching. There is an
unknown side to the world that can only be seen when inside a classroom. Watching the students
have made me realize that being a teacher will carry some difficulties. Observing has made me
realize that there is more to teaching, the classroom, and what goes on inside.

Over the five observations, I have learned more than I could ever imagined. I went into
this experience believing I knew everything there was to know about teaching. I witnessed the
good and bad moments during my time observing. The teachers I observed have shown me what
I should and should not do in certain situations. Observing the classroom has taught me vital
information that I needed to know to become successful.

When I first walked into Manchester Intermediate, I had mixed emotions. I was excited to be
there when I started interacting with the students. I wanted to watch the teachers and imagaine
what it would be like to be in front of students teaching. I became also nervous about the idea of
being with students, also afraid that I was going to make them uncomfortable. After sitting in the
classroom for ten minutes, my fears transformed. I had a wonderful experience when observing
the students, leading all my fears into excitement. I now cannot wait to be with children again.
While in the classroom, different teachers carried different atmospheres with them into
their rooms. The elementary classroom had students paired in groups of desks. The teachers
made the room feel welcoming to the students. The teacher placed pillows, plants, and posters
around the room to make the room more inviting. The students seem to love the room and
teacher. In the intermediate school, the classrooms had only a minor difference from the

elementary. The teacher had her classroom set up in groups and also had the safe feeling to it.
The only difference was that both teachers I observed had different college information placed in
their rooms. Both teachers had college posters and memorabilia around the room. I felt that the
teachers were sending a positive message about furthering her student’s information. In the
middle school however, students sat two to a table. The room felt bland without having any
posters or decorations of any kind. The room did not have the warm inviting feeling to it as did
the elementary and intermediate schools. In high school, the room had the same uninviting
feeling to it. The students in the classroom sat at a desk all to themselves. They were placed in
rows...
