South Oceanside Elementary
I believe a typical work day at the elementary school is chaotic, but fun. There's a lot of tasks and organizing needed to be handled in each classroom, and all that work on top of engaging with the kids keeping them on track, and making sure they're all doing well in the classroom, A typical day here is a lot to handle, but worth it for the kids.
I think tardiness in unacceptable and absence becomes very stressful to both the kids, the substitute teachers, and the other teachers. When a teacher had a meeting they had to attend during the school day, the kids were a little upset and two substitutes had to come in and take over the class. The teacher's relationship with the students can really show when one or the other is missing. The substitutes had a lot to handle because of this, but I got to help clean, hang their work on the wall, and help the kids create their Mother's Day cards.
The dress code was much like the SLC attire that we have. It wasn't too formal, but not casual either. To me, that gives a sense of comfort, and at my school, that's the main dress code, so they can be comfortable while learning.
My career day experience was spectacular! I got the opportunity to interact with the kids, organize some of their work in the classroom, and I even witnessed the classroom environments of two different grades: kindergarten and 2nd grade. While I was observing the classrooms and seeing how differently each teacher taught, I realized that it takes a lot of patience and tolerance to deal with students who don't want to listen and disrupt the class.
While teaching math, I'm aware that every person is different when it comes to learning. Some are slow learners, don't understand the subject and need more time to master a subject, and some are quick to learn and grow fast in math. But to ensure that everyone in the class understands and follows, patience is key.
Proper communication is important for everything. In English class, we're taught how to communicate with others, each other, and reach out to the real world.
