My name is Amanda Roos and I did my student teaching in a first-grade classroom at Harrington Elementary School in Albion, MI. I worked with two very talented teachers in a team-teaching classroom setting which was very rewarding! Starting October 20th I taught full-time for three weeks.

I had incredible freedom to try out my own activities and lessons. Although some of my plans have not worked out as well as others, I am constantly learning.

I really enjoyed working with my first graders, we had a class of 17 most of the time, but when we teamed up with the other classroom we had 34 students altogether!

It’s been a great journey and I am sad that it’s over. I really feel as though this experience has definitely prepared and guided me to the path of becoming the best teacher that I can be. I am more excited than ever to start teaching in my own classroom!
