Summary of Internship

Being an intern with Mrs. Kane at Dr. John Grieco Elementary School was a great experience and has taught me so much about Elementary Education. Interning with Mrs. Kane has taught me how much I would love to be in a second grade class room. Mrs. Kane has taught me so much when it comes to classroom management and interacting with all students when giving a lesson. Mrs. Kane has also helped me when it comes to working one on one with a student and seeing how every student learns differently. Iíve learned a lot about myself when it came to being in charge when Mrs. Kane was not present in the room and she left the responsibility up to me. I be came very close with the students and I became excited to see them and they were happy to see me. I got to see how every child is different and no two are the same. Mrs. Kane taught me that it is important to engage their attention with fun activities like Sparkle and Vocabulary Tic Tac Toe. It is also important to begin and end the day on a positive note. Overall my internship has been an amazing experience.
