So this week the relationships I’m building at my placement really shown through at certain times. Through my placement and into STARS, I’m building my identity as a teacher, as well as scaffolding the STARS GREEN team into seeing themselves as scientist.
The “R” Word = Relationships
I received my first present from a student 🙂
One student opened up about personal issues when prompted to work on classwork, they were avoiding. After conversation, they started working . (ARROW: could I have said something better, more efficient?)(Plus: did validate issue. Let them know I’m there, and so are other people)
Found out one of the students want to work for NASA-Had a fun conversation with that
Found out one of my students would like to play football for Syracuse or Rutgers.
( I <3 learning about their interest)
Very content heavy week, but kept STARS engaged
A lot of SCIENCE!!
(ARROW: What to do with that one person who is always negative?)
