Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
Today was my last day of fieldwork! I can’t believe how quickly these ten weeks have flown by. It has been a great experience overall, and I’ll definitely miss going back to this sixth grade classroom every week.
I learned a lot in this fieldwork placement, and I feel more prepared now for student teaching next semester. Like I’ve realized that kids won’t always raise their hand when they need help with something, and even the kids that you think are doing well because they have such high grades don’t always understand everything. I’ve seen so many different personalities, and I’ve realized that even as a teacher it’s okay to ask for help when you’re unsure of something.
I’ve enjoyed getting to observe and help out in this classroom for the past ten weeks, and I’ll be sad to see it end, but I’m looking forward to the future and to student teaching. I’m also looking forward to being able to sleep past 6:30am on Wednesdays from now on!!
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.
