Being a leader in the Community

For 255 we were told that we had to do 10 hours of leadership experience. It was a great opportunity to get into the community and show them how excited I am to be a teacher. My first 5 hours was being the captain of my all night volleyball team. This took a lot of efforts and phone calls to get together. I first had to assemble my team i asked many many people and finally I got a team of 3 guys and 4 girls. Next I had to make sure that everyone had a team shirt, and if they didn't I made them one so they would feel included. Next I got the team together before the event to go over strategy's. Once the competition started i had to make sure our team was at our games on time so we could start. When we were playing i was constantly cheering them on and saying how well we were doing. It turned out that we won 3 out of 5 games. It as a great night, there was a lot of laughs. My next 5 hours came from ABCD Day, I was able to work with children with disabilities, this was a very exciting day because i want to work with students with disabilities after college. It was a lot of fun all of the children were happy and excited to be there. After the ABCD Day i knew i wanted to be an adaptive teacher those children need all the help they can get and i willing to devote my life to there to help them live a little easier. These 10 hours at first seems like forever. But doing something that I enjoy doing made the 10 hours fly by. I am on my way to becoming a teacher and I can't wait.

The final teaching lab..... HORRAY!!

Lab D was probably the hardest and easiest lab that I have done this far. What was hard about this lab was the fact that i had one week from lab C to lab D, so i was constatnly working on the lab C packet and then trying to get everything ready for lab D. Also what was hard was trying to think of technology to use. I really wanted to use pedometers but the ones th schools have were broken. I thought it would have been cool to see how many miles we steped. What made this lab easy was the time. We finally had 20 minutes to do a whole lesson, we could actually enjoy teaching. Over all I feel my lesson went well, what I really need to work on is my voice. I need to be louder.
