Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today was my first day of fieldwork! I am definitely over my case of nerves from yesterday… The teacher that I am going to be working with seems like a wonderful guy so far, and I’m excited to be learning from him.
This is my first time working with a male teacher, and it’s also my first time working with sixth grade students. I was nervous about all of these firsts, but I’m happy to say that the day went extremely well. This teacher seems like he is going to really let me work hands-on with the kids, instead of just sitting back and observing. There is also a student teacher (from my college) working in the classroom, so it will be really nice to learn from her as well, since I’ll be in her shoes next semester.
I am looking forward to the rest of the semester and getting to understand sixth grade a little more.
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
