At this point I only know that I want to teach a K-6 class, as for which grade, I am not sure. Thats why I'm a student teacher, right? I was placed in a 2nd grade class at Mount Vernon, in York County. I became interested in teaching after working with students on field trips and longed for a better connection with the students. The idea of having a class for an entire year as apposed to 10-15 minutes appealed to me. I hope to create a classroom where students learn how to learn in every aspect of their life. My biggest hope as a teacher is to help students becoming individual thinkers with the social skills to work together with their fellow students. My biggest fear is that my students will misunderstand my teaching and will not learn as much as I hoped they could.
