Here is a summary of my experience.

My experience included:

  • five weeks of student teaching a full schedule: one Low A level class, two Mixed A level classes, and two B1 classes.
  • substitute teaching
  • assisting the ESOL department
  • volunteering with the volleyball team
  • volunteering as a McLeader sponsor
  • acting as chaperone on an ICU club field trip to NYC and Philadelphia
