Elementary School Internship Description

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.

    Today is my first day of helping the second grade teacher. In the morning we sit in a circle introduce ourselves. Then we did some math problems. I helped some of them read some of the books and work on their project

    Today, a student from the high school walked me through the process of how to make copies and some other things. In the morning we did the math problem, and then we did some reading together. We had a outdoor lunch and then we did some reading project. In the ending of the day,we did some PE.
