I will do my internship with Darlene Clark, a second-grade teacher in the primary school at Friday Harbor Elementary. She had been teaching middle school for 11 years and then she became a primary teacher. Darlene teaches Math, English, Reading, and Writing. The mission Friday Harbor Elementary School is to instill a love of learning in all students and to nurture creativity, imagination, and leadership in all children. I will be Darlene’s classroom helper.
I want to do my internship in teaching because I like children a lot, and my brother is in the first grade in China. I want to see the differences between Chinese and American schools. I am excited but also nervous about my internship. As a English is my second language, I am afraid that I will not be able understand the students. This will be a good time for me to practice my English skills.
