My Clinical Experience: The Good And The Bad

658 words - 3 pages

This semester, I have been observing and teaching social science classes at Cuba Senior High School. The school has a very friendly atmosphere, and I felt very welcome from the moment that I entered the building. The faculty and staff are very committed to the education of the approximately 152 students in the building treat each other with respect. In fact, on my first day; which was a teacher institute day; they welcomed the three student teachers across the district into the Cuba School district family. Essentially, I was mentored by all of the staff and faculty in the school as they all offered me suggestions and advice at various points throughout the semester; however, there were my two main cooperating teachers. The arrangement where I observed and taught classes under two cooperating teachers was set up on the first day of my clinical experience with Ms. Nelson. I have been observing and teaching Mr. Craig’s two geography classes in place of two of Mr. Brewer’s classes. The other classes that I have been responsible for during the course of this experience were Mr. Brewer’s current events, world religions, and two U.S. History classes.
Being mentored by two cooperating teachers at the same time has been very beneficial. It has allowed me to observe two varied teaching styles consecutively and take elements that I like from each and mix them in with my personality and create and modify my own unique teaching style. Another benefit is that I was teaching different classes; therefore, creating a different experience in preparation for my future teaching career. Throughout the course of the semester, I taught a primarily junior class and some cases of mixed grade levels; once geography was added, I was then responsible for teaching a primarily freshman class. This helped give me the experience to work with all grade levels, which also affected the way lessons were planned.
