13 hours ago I’m so sorry ts is so late! I know in my introduction I talked about having a baby four months ago and boy ts has been hard! On Thursday of ts past week she had to get her four month vaccinations and it was miserable. Ts was the second time getting her vaccinations and ts time I was actually able to hold her face and comfort her. However, the worst came Thursday night when she had a fever that spiked up to 105.6 and we ended up in the emergency room with a screaming baby. She had a reaction and it was heart breaking. We spent all night with tubes and iv’s around her. We finally got to bring her home ts morning and its the first time I’m getting to sit down and write. One of the examples I’d like to use is when I volunteered at Timothy Christian Academy. It was a small school and in tenth grade we were asked to complete 225 hours of volunteering. (Our school gave us time off to do ts, we had an entire year to complete it.)  I worked with the fourth grade class. There were 25 students. There was one little boy who was having trouble reading. He did not like reading in front of the class because he didn’t read fast enough and stuttered, s classmates picked on m.  Everyday for an hour, I would spend time with outside of the classroom during class reading time and we would read at our own pace. After about two weeks of reading together he told me he felt confident enough to read in front of the class. So the day s teacher called on m to read, he looked at me and I gave m a thumbs up. In the beginning I told m if he could accomplish ts and conquer ts fear, we would go get a slice of pizza from across the street, at lunch. YES we asked s parents. Anyways, the day he conquered ts fear I remember the tears that welled up in s eyes as everyone clapped for m. He had done it.  A couple teachers said it was a bribe, but I look at it as hard work, confidence boosters, and a reward for conquering that fear.  I remember s mom being so proud of m and thanking me. It wasn’t about the thanks, it was about feeling so proud of the work ts little boy accomplished. I called it positive reinforcement. The second strategy I’d like to look at it is one on one time. I worked at an in home day care back in Pladelpa. The lady I worked for had 7 special needs cldren, and some cldren who were three to six who had not a simple idea of the alphabet. She didn’t do any lesson plans with them or anytng. Many days she would leave me there even with her newborn baby, just to go shopping with her husband. Her idea of teacng was to sit them in front of the TV. So I began making lesson plans, we learned a new letter every week. We would do arts and crafts involving the letter of the week. We began doing fun events like Dr.Seuss days. There were only seven kids so I would rotate them out. I would spend one on one time with each cld and try to figure out what the best way that they learned was. Spending ts one on one time only made their confidence grow. I still am friends with many of these parents and they have shared that the cldren are now exceeding their expectations in school. One student in particular, Aaron, was asked by s mother why he went from doing so poorly in school to doing so well, and he said, “do you remember Miss Kayla? Its because she spent so much time working with just me that I feel better about school.” That made my heart soar! One on one time is so important, because as teachers we also don’t know what support these cldren are getting from home. Being their support systems makes it so they are more open to learning.  What drew the line for me, working at ts daycare, was when I came in from school late and one of the little boys, who was two years old, had been standing in the corner in clothes he had peed in for two hours. I ended up going and working for s mom. I had a 3 year old now, a 10 year old, and an 11 year old. Jaylin was 10 and she was failing her English class. Her mother asked me to work with her. Eli was 3 and didn’t even know the alphabet. Summer was coming and Jaylin barely passed the fifth grade. We were stuck inside most days because their mother felt it was either to cold or to hot to go outside, and she let them watch TV all day. That did not work for me. So I made a rule that there was absolutely NO TV until we all did our work. For Jaylin, she was going into the sixth grade. In eigth grade, my teacher had us read, All of these are absolutely amazing books. So, these were the books I read with Jaylin. Everyday we would read five chapters of the book and she would have discussion questions for the entire week that she would have to write down in a journal. I told her as soon as we were finished reading the books we would have a movie and pizza night. With Eli, we spent everyday learning a new letter and number. If he completed s work without giving me a hard time we would go to the McDonald’s play lot once a week.  The strategy I used was motivation. I believe if a student is truly motivated by sometng, whether it be getting praise from a teacher, or a reward it motivates them to do their work and succeed.
