PCC prepared me by having teaching classes that taught me how to be a prepared and organized teacher. Student teaching at the Academy was an excellent opportunity to learn from seasoned teachers while still having the opportunity to compare experiences with the other student teaching peers.
The internship helped prepare me by allowing me to get in an actual classroom and see how things were done. All children are not the same, and they don’t all behave and react the same way. It was the perfect opportunity to see how seasoned teachers handled situations with different children. I also had the opportunity to try those very same things myself and could talk to those same teachers for advice.
