Strengths of the Middle Level Education Program
- By Middle Level Education
The strengths of the program for me, was again, that immersion, starting right at the beginning. I knew nothing, I had never been in a classroom before. Starting out with a balance of being in the class 3 days a week, and then taking class the other days was a nice soft start. And then being there every day at the end, I just felt more prepared than other people who had started with student teaching for short condensed amounts of time. By being there every day for the whole year, I just felt like I was more prepared. I also felt that the focus on technology really helped me as a new student. I am on my team with some veteran teachers, but I am able to contribute my knowledge of technology in a way that's proved really beneficial this year.
