Education is a life-long process of learning and to become an efficient and effective the strategies, tactics and teaching styles that best suit him/her. It is the time of trial and error and for growing confidence and beginning expertise. It is not a time of perfection but of striving for competence. Though student teaching, a process whereby a potential teachers confirms to himself/herself and others that he/she as the resourcefulness to survive with educator, you must first understand the

value of continuous learning because this would be the teacher’s tool in molding

individuals into a better and more competitive one. The first major step in moving from amateur status toward gaining competencies that mark the real professional is the student teaching opportunities to the educational theories and methods into practice. Student teaching is the first and foremost a learning situation. This is the craft before he or she has to put his/her skills on the lime in his/her ow classroom. This is the student teachers chance to learn from his mistakes without causing harm to his/her students. This is the time for him/her to find out an actual teaching situation, the prospect teacher gain more experiences that would serve as their credential in their path. As we all know, teaching is a noble profession. It requires a long preparation and

more training sessions for them to be equipped in facing the real environment that awaits them in near future. Student teaching serves as an internship in the profession education where theories, knowledge, attitudes and skills develop through course work and observationare

fused in more meaningful interpretation through practical experience in actual teaching situation.

What is Practice Teaching?

Practice teaching is an important component of becoming a teacher. It grants student teachers experience in the actual teaching and learning environment. Student teachers are exposed when they work in classrooms and schools where they are assigned.

Teaching is a passion. It is also an integral component of teacher training. You need to love what you are doing. Good teaching practice is a key influence on student learning - a desired outcome and primary goal of higher educational institutions. Practice teaching played an important part in their development as teachers by providing a context wherein they could merge theory and practice find their own teaching and management styles as well as cope with the demands of multi-tasking that being in a classroom demands. Practice teaching is very challenging but it is important part of training as a future teacher in developing and molding ones abilities and skills. In dictionary, Practice Teaching is defined as a teaching by a student under the supervision of an experienced teacher. Meaning,the student teaching experience is designed to give the student a full time internship under the supervision of a cooperating teacher. The experienced teacher

provides trainee teachers with the opportunity to integrate different type’s knowledge and

use them in specific contents in order to achieve the desired educational aims, objectives, and values. The student teacher must teach contents by applying general pedagogical

knowledge and their specific knowledge of the certain subject that they going to teach. At

the same time, they must take into account the characteristics of the students they’re

handling that are the recipient of the teaching as well as the knowledge of the educational context in which teaching takes place. During the teaching practice, the student teacher and the students learn to understand problems, and aware of the influence of other pedagogical materials have on teaching. Not just by developing and teaching the students but also the student teacher’s ability, skills, the way of teaching and his/her values are improved throughout the trainee by the help of the cooperating teacher. Student teaching is often characterized as the most transformative experience in teacher education. During student teaching, you will enact in the classroom the teaching theories, strategies, and standards you learned in your core courses. To help you make the transition from student to teacher, you will share the classroom with an experienced professional who will impart to you his or her knowledge of best practices and the wisdom acquired from years of experience. The teaching practice is also represents an

opportunity for student teachers to socialize, and learn to “behave” like teachers. In this

sense, it is important that student teachers should analyze different aspects of the state of the teaching profession. This includes areas such as professional culture, autonomy, involvement, commitment, teaching as a career, etc.

Practice teaching played an important part in their development as teachers by providing a context wherein they could merge theory and practice, find their own teaching and management styles as well as cope with the demands of multi-tasking that being in a classroom demands. The paramount role of the host teacher and the importance of positive relationships with all stakeholders were fore grounded - as was the importance of an awareness of the cultural and contextual make-up of learners. This study hopes to make a contribution towards the understanding of student teachers' experiences of

practice teaching in South Africa. It is also hope that through this study, further research in this field will be encouraged.

Goals of Practice Teaching

The student teaching experience is designed to give the student a full time

internship under the supervision of a cooperating teacher. The Education Department

requires that the student’s total scholastic effort be devoted to the student teaching

experiences. There are no other college course responsibilities during this time period. Specifically, the student will:

1. To obtain immediate knowledge of educational reality in terms of personal, material and functional elements.

  • 2. To acquire real experience that compensates the theoretical training.

  • 3. To provide an encounter between pedagogical knowledge and school reality

in order to develop the future teacher’s sense of security this derives from contrasted,

useful and applicable knowledge.

  • 4. To provide knowledge of the motives and conditioning factors (social,

personal, economic, etc.) which sometimes require the teacher to adapt pedagogical

norms to reality.

  • 5. To perfect teaching skills. While it is true that teaching requires a number of

base skills, it is also the case that these skills can be improved with guidance and practice.

  • 6. To check the level of interest the student teacher has in the profession.

  • 7. To gain an insight into the students (interests, needs, individual differences,



To know how the school and classroom works.

  • 9. To understand the school as a collective enterprise that arises as a result of

the positive relationship between its members.

  • 10. To complete routines, such as organizing, classifying material, applying

classroom management techniques, etc.

  • 11. To learn from experienced teachers.

  • 12. To contrast academic knowledge with the school reality.

  • 13. To put techniques learned (motivation techniques, how to introduce a

theme, carry out a dialogue, etc.) into practice.

  • 14. To judiciously put the profession of teaching into practice.

The broad goal of student teaching is that the student have the best possible introduction to the teaching field. Major responsibility rests with the cooperating teacher to set reasonable and specific objectives befitting the individual ability and development of the student teacher. It is assumed that the cooperating teacher will guide the student through a variety of experiences ranging from the practice of basic teaching skills to classroom management. The cooperating teacher should decide on specific goals and objectives after observing the student in a classroom teaching situation. It is quite possible that may competencies will be proven early, while others such as asking high order questions will need more practice. In addition to learning about teaching skills and methods and dealing with classroom management, the student should gain knowledge about the community in which he or she is teaching. The Education Department recommends, but does not insist,

that the student live in the community while student teaching. It is hoped that this will

help him/her to better understand the children being taught.










me, develop in the area of

professionalism. Ethical behavior towards students and peers is essential. The

cooperating teacher and university supervisor should be alert to counsel and advise the

student on these matters.

Student Teacher’s Educational Philosophy/Credo

Teaching is more that simply an obligation implementing the curriculum it is

engaging and expanding the knowledge of the students to help inspire them with the need

for learning. There are many qualities that I believe a teacher should possess. The ones

that I believe are the most essential for me to be an exceptional teacher is that I am

endearing, creative, attentive, open-minded and create a positive learning environment

suitable for all in order to create the most appropriate and safe learning environment for

all my students. I must gain their trust. The way in which I would start to build the

foundation of the relationship is to show that I value all of them and then learning. I

believe that it is very important that I provide the students with the adequate respect and

trust that I expect them to provide me. I will strive to be a respectful teacher, taking all

my students’ needs and feelings to heart I every situation.

Through the relationships that all my students, I will then be able to develop a

community among everyone in which they will then be able to work together. I will

always be determined on creating and maintaining an inclusive classroom where all

students respect one another and everyone has the opportunity to participated. It is also

important to me as a teacher to build relationships with my students’ parents, guardians,

and my fellow colleagues. As a teacher, it is very important to have a cooperative and

trusting partnership among all those involved in the child’s learning. A child’s learning

goes beyond the classroom and it is important that everyone is on the same page as to

what the child needs in order to be successful.

My goal as a teacher is to instill the will of learning and confidence in each of

them. I strongly believe that every child has the ability to learn no matter what and it is

my obligation as a teacher, to find the best suitable method of learning that benefits each

student. My goal is to be as diverse and inviting to all possibilities in the classroom

learning environment as well as being aware of al social justice issues. I am strong

supporter and believer in the idea that students learn by doing. This way of implementing

concepts to the students will be a major factor that will shape my teaching. I hope to help

each student find their strengths and to build on them as well as encourage them to work

on their weaknesses. I need to be very attentive and aware of all my students’ needs in

order to provide them all with the opportunity for success. My goal is also help the

students feel as much at ease as possible in any situation they feel unsafe in whatever it

may be around course, material, classroom conflict, etc. I will encourage students to

challenge themselves and to look at things with a critical analysis. I will treat all my

students as individuals, especially at times of assessment. Every student does not fit into

the same bubble, therefore, assessment tools should not always be kept the same. This

will allow me to gain a real understanding on what each student can do. I will seek to find

the extra help and assistance for the students who may be struggling in my class. I also

want to be able to make learning meaningful and connective process for the students by

bringing in some of their everyday life experiences into their learning in the classroom. I

hope to inspire the students’ interest and curiosity in the material they are studying and to

extend their learning beyond the classroom.

Learning is a fundamental and ongoing process that every child and adult

experiences throughout their life. It is essential that I respect and consider all my

students’ way of learning in order for them to have a positive experience. The more

positive the learning experience for the child, the more they will take out of the situation

and value their own learning process. To help ensure that I am providing my students

with the best education I possibly can, I will continue my own learning. My own learning

will never cease, as I will always be constantly learning new ways to make my classroom

better learning environment and to expand my own educational background. I will be

reflective of my own pedagogy, so I can modify and adapt different teaching tactics for

the benefit of all my students.

Student-Teaching Expectations

Beginning teachers often set the bar with it comes to student’s expectations. As a

student teacher, it is common to be portrayed a competent teacher who has a control over

their classroom. These are few suggestions that help a student’s teacher like me to make

realistic and achievable goals for the student:

Classroom and capstone/seminar participation is required.

During the student teaching experience, the student teacher is required

to follow the cooperating school calendar.

The student teacher is expected to conform to the same professional standards as

the regular staff members of the cooperating school. The student teacher should

arrive at the school at the same time as the teachers and spend the full school day

and any additional planning time as the cooperating teacher requests. If

unforeseen circumstances should cause the student teacher to be late, the student

teacher must contact the school clerk, the cooperating teacher and the university

supervisor. The same applies if the student teacher is going to be absent due to

illness. S/he must contact the cooperating teacher and the university supervisor

the night before or as early as possible. In addition, when absent, the student

teacher must provide plans and other materials necessary to the cooperating

teacher and add the extra time on to his/her student teaching experience.

As a student teacher, 100 percent attendance is expected to fulfill requirements for

state licensure. Any absences can result in the lowering of the final student

teaching grade or termination of the experience. During the student teaching

quarter, if a student teacher experiences significant illness, death in the family or

other critical incident, the student teacher must immediately notify the university

supervisor, the cooperating teacher and the school clerk. The decision as to

whether to continue the experience or to be withdrawn will be made on an

individual basis. Students who are aware of outstanding obligations that require

absences during the student teaching experience should contact the Office of Field

Experiences and Student Teaching to defer their student teaching to the next


The student teacher works with the cooperating teacher each day to assure the

immediate assistance in planning, teaching and evaluating.

The student teacher should collaborate with the cooperating teacher to designate

meeting times at least twice a week to discuss progress, plans, responsibilities and

concerns. The meeting times should be agreed upon in advance and should be

appropriate to the schedules of both parties. It is expected that the student teacher

will have a clearunderstanding of his/her responsibilities for each week by the

Friday prior to the following week.

The university supervisor will make at least four supervisory visits for each

student teacher. When arranging the visits, the student teacher should plan a time

when it is possible for the supervisor to confer with the student teacher following

the observation and to confer with the cooperating teacher after that.

When the university supervisor visits the classroom, the student teacher must

provide the supervisor with his/her daily lesson plans, as well as any additional

material requested by the university supervisor.

Each student teacher is mandated by state law to report instances of child abuse. If

such matters are observed, they must be shared with the cooperating teacher

and/or school administrator.

Student teachers must satisfactorily demonstrate their competence as a teacher, as

outlined on the evaluation forms completed by the cooperating teacher and

university supervisor.

Each student teacher must exhibit professional behavior and dress appropriately

for all teaching situations and school functions.

Student teachers must consider all cooperating school obligations as high

priorities and display a willingness to participate in faculty meetings, department

meetings, institute days, conferences, programs, activities, etc.

Student teachers must promptly prepare the materials requested by their

cooperating teacher, university supervisor, and capstone/seminar instructor (i.e.,

schedules, logs, record books, timesheets, reflection sheets, lesson plans,

attendance records, discipline referrals, etc.).

All student teachers must display the dispositions of the Urban Professional

Multicultural Educator.

Student teachers must maintain good professional relations, public relations, and

human relations not only with the teaching and non-teaching personnel of the

cooperating school, but also with the community that the school serves. Students

must remember thatthey are not only student teachers, but also a representative.

Student teachers must maintain academic integrity at off-campus sites.

Student teachers may not work Monday through Friday during school hours.

Terms and Reference in Student Teaching

The following terms and their definitions may provide clarification, as needed, for the

professional vocabulary used for the student teaching experience:

Student Teacher- The University student who is enrolled for the professional term.

A Brief Description of the Cooperating School

a. History



(Campus II)

Starting from pioneering class of only fifty fourth year student to the 3,521

enrollees at the start of since SY 1983-1984, Zamboanga del Norte National High

School’s humble takeoff can be traced back to the early post-war time 1946.

Due to the populace’s insistent clamor for higher education, this caused them to

travel to nearby island provinces of Negros and Cebu, the provincial government of

Zamboanga Peninsula, trough ex-Governenor Felipe B. Azcuna, authored the transfer of

Zamboanga Provincial High School, then operating in the erstwhile capital town of

Zamboanga (now Zamboanga City), to his hometown in Dipolog, thus beginning the

chain of efforts.

What made this school what it is now Zamboanga del Norte National High

School per P.D. 1050 dated December 1, 1977 brings us to the achievements of

dedicated school administrators, who more than did their best to mould the present

institution, namely: Buenaventura Yason, 1946-1952; Primitivo Adan, 1952-1962; Lilia

Hamac, 1962-1981; Francisco Gonzales (Ex-officio), 1981-1983; Catalina Santiago Sulit,

1983-1994; Anesia S. Ochotorena (OIC), March 15, 1994-June 10, 1998; Benigno D.

Evardos, 1998 august 12, 2000; Sultan Pangsayan T.Radi, Sr., Septamber 7, 2000 to


On its way to growth and development with DepEd’s Thrusts on value-oriented

curriculum and the current trends in humanistic education, the school has been challenge

was met head on by the institution as proven by the numerous honors and awards

received in various government thrusts in Education, Music, Sports, Arts, Green

Revolution, Nutrition, and other extracurricular activities.

But the main drawback lies on its dearth of physical facilities. Since its first

hosting of the 1964 Mindanao Athletic Meet, the school has been the venue of a series of

local, regional, and National sports fest.

Then came the 1982 Palarong Pambansa on March 14-20, which caused an almost

overnight face-lifting of the Zamboanga del Norte Sports Complex, where the school is

located although negotiations for its possible donation from the provincial government

are still in the making since its nationalization, and so went the demolition of 46 concert

classrooms and the administration building.

While the ZN Sports Complex may be the best in the region [during that time],

the replacement of the lost classrooms at the back of the three grandstands remains s faint


Since the opening, the Zamboanga del Norte National High School is under the

jurisdiction of the Division of Zamboanga del Norte; the was transferred to the Division

of Dipolog City per Republic Act 8174, otherwise known as the General Appropriations

Act of 1996 for all budgetary transactions.

Due to the influx of students from neighboring towns and the City of Dapitan, the

school needed more space, more rooms for its use.

Through the efforts of Mrs. Patricia G. Ratilla, one of the faculty members of the

school, ownership of a lot in Turno, which is a property of the National Government for

the establishment of the City Normal College, was transferred to ZNNHS through a bill

authored by the then Congressman Ernesto S. Amatong. Thus the existence of ZNNHS

Turno Campus today.

Orientation Seminar

Bearing the theme “Student Teaching: A Road Towards Teaching and Learning

Competency”, a one-day orientation seminar was conducted by the College of Education

last December 2, 2016 at JRMSU gymnasium.

In coordination with Dipolog City Schools Division Office, te seminar tackled

several issues and concerns which were attended by the 4 th year Education students of the

said Department.

The morning session commenced with the singing of the National Anthem led by

the Dimasalang choristers, followed by an exulting remarks from the ever-loving Dean of

the College of Education, Dr. Elenita M. Reyna.

The first speaker of the day, Dr. Amelinda D. Montero, Chief Education

Supervisor, CID, stressed the importance of lesson planning in the educative arena and

the proper way of constructing it. Another key speaker, Mr. Crispo V. Gahisan, Senior

ES Education Program Specialist, discussed about the “Terms of Reference” and

“DepED Forms”.

Dr. Nur N. Hussien, DepEd Supervisor of Region IX, tackeld about the K-12

program of the government during the afternoon session. Each key speakers of the

seminar received certificates from the CED Department.

The seminar officially ended with the closing remarks delivered by the Assistant

Dean of the College of education, Dr. Merlyn M. Luza.

We were aware of the things that we needed for the future. I have learned a lot of

things in the orientation because I learned how to improve my lesson plan and fill in the

DepEd forms. Since, student teachers are required to write formal lesson plans

throughout the entire student teaching experience unless otherwise directed by the

university supervisor. All student teachers must demonstrate that they can perform acts of

instruction and classroom management both reflectively and spontaneously in a

satisfactory manner.

Orientation by Cooperating Principal

During our orientation seminar with the school principal, Edgardo S. Cabalida,

Ed.D. a highly respected principal of all teachers of Zamboanga del Norte National High

School (Campus II) last January 10, 2017. He is very professional in dealing with other

people around him. He informed us the dos and don’ts of student teacher and policies

they have in their school. He is strict of not following the rules of the school. After that,

he assigned us to our critic/cooperating teacher.

School Tour

I toured myself in Zamboanga del Norte National High School (Campus II) so

that I could be familiar with the facilities they have and the environment inside the

campus. There were many students studied in their school and as I have observed the

students were competitive. Their environment was good and their classrooms were

conducive to learning. I could see the eagerness of every student to learn. I can see it in

their faces that they were willing to gain more knowledge and understand about the

things and changes that happens in our society. The pictures below were taken from

Zamboanga del Norte National High School (Turno campus).

and willing to help me as a student teacher. The cooperating school I was assigned was

quite memorable one and I learned a lot of things as a future teacher. You’re free to

socialized others because the school is a child-friendly school. And I wish my students in

this school would help me throughout my practice teaching and we have a good

relationship with each other as well as the school’s staff and more importantly to my

critic teacher. I realized that the school is an institution of love, responsible, respectful,

and competitive school. The school nurtured not only in academics but also in manners

Reflection a. Am I really prepared to teach?

The common litany that runs if we talk about teaching is that “it is the noblest of

all professions”. Nothing is more profound profession than teaching for teachers invest

their own time, energy, and in the long run, invest their own lives just to touch the lives

of others. Teaching is not an easy task, this is a noble profession and you have to take this

seriously, to love it and dedicate yourself into this profession. And the question is, Am I

really prepared to teach? I am at my best and still have the passion in teaching. I know I

can do it! I am ready to teach! Spending everyday life working as a teacher is really

handful. Waking up early preparing for work, I always ask this to myself “Am I ready?

While checking my daily lesson plan for a week lesson and activities, I realized I didn’t

spent much of a time for myself, researching for lessons and modules that will coincide in

the curriculum guide that is in the DepEd website. Finding activities that would be fun

and exciting for the students and doing an extra time preparing for visual aids of lessons.

One day, I attempt to give up because of some reason but I believe that teaching is my

accept the challenge in improving myself always and dedicate myself in teaching and to

be competitive and compassionate teacher in the future. Impart knowledge for the

students and mold them to become a competitive individual.

I believe that a truly prepared teacher is someone who can make difference child’s

life, to ignite curiosity and growth to their students. You must ensure that the students are

really learning from you, how they assimilate knowledge, imbibe the values, and foster

the skills must be monitor by you. Again, Yes! I am really prepared to teach this is

through the help of the people behind me especially my teachers who always motivate me

to strive, to do my best and to make most out of my teaching

Week 2

My job as instructed by my Cooperating Teacher

It is my job to follow and obey what is my cooperating teacher instructed, in

doing so it is very helpful for me as a student teacher in a way that obeying her advice,

accept criticism and suggestions with regards to my teaching so that, I can improve my

way of teaching. I must be opened-minded for whatever situations arise regarding my

performance as her student teacher. Considering that my cooperating teacher experiences

a lot in different way of teaching the students in meaningful way, more fun and

enjoyment while learning the subject matter being taught.

My observation report in assisting my Cooperating Teacher

In my observation with regards in assisting my cooperating teacher she plans

instruction that will address the needs of diverse and special needs students. Aware of

students' behavior. Develop an effective and consistent approach to classroom

management. Manage time and transitions effectively. Use effective verbal and nonverbal

communication techniques with students. She’s very fluent in speaking English language;

she practiced the kind of techniques she used during her class. Regularly reflect on

teaching practices and set goals for continued improvement. Assess students regularly to

set instructional goals. Most importantly, as a teacher she serves as a model of integrity,

honesty, and confidentiality.

My own expectations

Teaching is not an easy job. There are lots of preparations that need to be

finished; lesson plan, instructional materials, teaching methodologies, etc. Teachers are

the breathe and life in the classroom, upon their shoulders lies the future of the youth,

they are the critical thread that ties the learners into lifelong process of learning. I realized

also that as a teacher, you must be prepare all the time; physically, emotionally, and

mentally, because there are really circumstances that you don’t expect to happen like

misbehaviors, improper conducts, and whatsoever flaws and inconsistencies. These add

to the difficulty of the teaching profession. But then, I realized also that teaching is one of

a kind profession for you are helping, motivating, educating, and inspiring your students

to bring out the best of them, to reach their maximum potential. To invest your life just

for the student’s learned and be a competitive individual.

The characteristics of the learners I am handling

The characteristics of the learners I am handling is that they are respectful

towards teachers, other staff of the school premises, as well as we, as student teacher,

responsible and value-oriented. Specifically, in my class the characteristics they possess

they value each other’s company inside the classroom. They were not a burden for the

teachers to handle in the class not because they are smart learners but also they have the

good characteristics as responsible students. When they are assigned of different tasks

they will work for it until they can meet the deadline. Aside from that these learners are

active in the classroom discussion, or whatever the teacher ask them to do they able to

accomplish the tasks. Cooperative, in a sense that they cooperate each other to what they

are doing inside the class. Helpful towards their co-students, teachers and other staff

personnel. Behave students whenever the teacher talks in front or in between the

discussion of the class. In general, these learners possess good characteristics.

Synopsis about the developmental stages of the grade level I am handling

Developmental stages of the grade level I am handling is on formal operational

even though they were grade 7 students most of them gain the ability to think in an

abstract manner, the ability to combine and classify items in a more sophisticated way,

and the capacity for higher order reasoning. The formal operational thinker has the ability

to consider many different solutions to a problem before acting. This greatly increases

efficiency, because the individual can avoid potentially unsuccessful attempts at solving a

problem. Since, 21 st century learners are more updated of information so, as a learner you

need to be more knowledgeable enough to teach the students in a higher order thinking


My first encounter with my Cooperating Teacher

God answered my prayers. I asked for a kind, thoughtful and considerate and

instructional cooperating teacher that could help me in enhancing and widening my

knowledge and skills materials in teaching. And it was given to me. She dealt with me

nicely. She showed me books needed for the lesson and what lesson she is at, and the

teaching guide she had. Though she’s not the type of a teacher who is not fun of talking

but I can feel that she’s very an intelligent teacher that capable of improving one’s

confidence, skills, and abilities as well as value-oriented. She has the good personality

even though she’s pregnant. She is cheerful to me the day we first meet. I know she can

look out for me, guide me along the way, provide me an adult perspective. I know that

she’s willing to help her students and I believe that she’s willing to give answers to my

questions, offer advice in improving my ability in teaching, and help me in the future

career to more competitive individual/mentor. I am expecting that my cooperating teacher

was very cooperative in such a way that guides me in the whole teaching learning

process. Provide feedbacks to improve my weakness and maintain my strengths in

teaching, give me an opportunity to explore and discover because I do believe that I still

have many concepts to learn, lessons to explore, and principle to apply.

My first dealing with my learners

My first dealing with my learners is quite nervous because I don’t have the idea

what kind of learners they are. Student diversity is evident. This is one of the challenges

in the teaching profession; different learning styles, different levels of abilities, some are

average but multitude are fast learners, different behaviors, different beliefs, different set

of moral and ethical standards, and whatsoever differences. The teacher should consider

all these differences. You must be flexible and creative enough so that you can address

this kind of dilemma in order to satisfy the wants and needs of every learner. I observed

that, I have to study more and I had to be not contented with the student’s modules. I

need to research in other references such as internet, book in English to add more

information about the topic. And to get ready to any question of my students.

Reflection a. I am really meant for the teaching profession because

I am really meant for teaching profession because this is my passion. I want to be

involved in the process of raising new generations. I do believe that four years and more

years of preparation is enough. I have gained of healthy knowledge, receptacle of good

values, and storehouse of useful skills. Some people know which profession to choose

from their earliest days of childhood, while others make their decision much later in life.

The most rewarding part of teaching is that you as a teacher can make someone’s life

different and change. But as much as teaching can be rewarding, it can also be frustrating

and stressful when dealing with unmotivated students, large classes, and heavy

workloads. Most frustrating one, teachers will sometimes have to deal with unruly

behavior and violence from students. These are all part of teaching. Teaching is not

simply “teaching”. You need to plan instruction that will address the needs of diverse and

special needs and interest of the students.

Since, I am able to have a practice teaching; I have now the knowledge of being a

future teacher. The things that as a teacher must do and must not do in and inside the

school you are assigned. You know how to deal with the students based on their needs

and interests. You are now knowledgeable on teaching methodologies.

As we all know that teaching is the specialized application of knowledge, skills

and attributes designed to provide unique service to meet the educational needs of the

individual and of society. The choice of learning activities whereby the goals of

education are realized in the school is the responsibility of the teaching profession.



Week 3

My job as instructed by my Cooperating Teacher

As a student teacher of an experience teacher as you instructed by his/her you

need to follow and obey what he/she wants you to do. Specifically, in teaching my

cooperating teacher instructs me to be more facilitative in that way it seeks to help

students “construct” meaning and come to an understanding of important ideas and

processes. She instructed me to use different kinds of approaches, methods, and resources

that will employ to the students for the teachers desired of what the students to


The learning resources of the Cooperating School that I utilized

A learning resource is a facility within a school containing several information

sources. School libraries are then considered one of the most important resources within

educational facilities. The need to develop school libraries is urgent in that, on the one

hand there is a need to convey information via a wide diversity of technologies and

resources. I often use the libraries inside the campus where I am teaching especially using

the books which are needed. It is where I am going to have my lesson planning, study the

lesson that I am going to teach for the day or next day, making visual aids, encoding and

reading books. The library contains several information resources and their techniques, in

which the as a student teacher directly deals to acquire searching skills of information,

analyze and evaluate to build a new knowledge and experience, then develop them using

several learning methods. It also provides services to, facilitate the useful for both

teaching and learning.

The ideas about my cooperating school home

Good in atmosphere

All educators know that the atmosphere within a school contributes as

much to the success of the student as the curriculum. More importantly, it has a great

more bearing on whether or not a child develops a love for learning. The challenge of

creating a positive atmosphere transcends the debate of whether our schools need to

become more goal-oriented, and more accountable for their results. It is about making

school a place where children feel challenged but competent, where they work hard but

enjoy it, where achievement is the product but not the sole objective. And a positive

classroom environment yields positive students who are motivated to learn.


If you feel comfortable, you will work better. If you are in discomfort, you

will not work at your potential. It should be a school that is comfortable for the learners

to learn without being distracted by the loud areas such as parking vehicles and bicycles.

Comfortable seating leads to better breathing. And the classroom must be conducive to


Have tools

The school should have a wide strategy for creating and sustaining a

positive, nurturing school climate, based on respectful relationships between teachers and

students, teachers and teachers, students and students is that they have the tools for

teaching-learning process that they are needed. In that way, the school learning tools that

are utilized by the students and teachers help them to work easier and convenient.

I can always make my second home:

  • a. Safe and secure by

I can always

make my second home safe and

secure by the learning

environment and community where the students are studying. In the school, there are

violent students who are only looking for an opportunity to launch their attacks or an

outsider that sometimes may affect to other students lives. The school’s security

personnel should make adequate arrangement to identify students that sneak into the

school. Thorough checking must be conducted at the gates of the school to achieve that.

Another valuable measure to be taken is planting cameras to key areas within the school

premises to monitor the general conduct of the students. In that way, we can avoid any

incident and threatening inside and outside the school. In general, guide the students the

do’s and don’ts of the school and monitoring classroom facilities to ensure safety.

  • b. Friendly by

I can always make my second home friendly by equality, dignity, respect,

non-discrimination and participation. It is a school community where human rights are

learned, taught, practiced, respected, protected and promoted.From the way decisions are

made in schools, to the way people treat each other, and where the students are being

taught. Encouraged the students and teachers to take active part in school life, regardless

of status or role, and where cultural diversity is celebrated. Students, teachers and the

school community learn about human rights by putting them into practice every day and

have a friendly school zone. And showing enthusiasm to preserve respectable atmosphere

or smiling back to students’ greetings in and outside of the school.

c. Non-threatening by I can always make my second home non-threatening by showing the

students that they are feel safe and secure, free to learn and the school is out source of

any harmful things. Some may find the subject itself threateningit may be

embarrassing, distasteful, or just too difficult. Others are threatened because they think

that everyone in the class knows more than they do. The personalities of some students

threaten or intimidate fellow students. To avoid this situation, the students should feel

that there are no barriers/hindrances for them to learn in the school in a way of engaging

the students outdoor activities when needed. And also, maintaining good rapport to

teachers, school personnel, and stakeholder.

Reflection: After analyzing the cooperating school mission, vision and goals

a. I realized that

The school’s mission, vision, and goals of my cooperating school


realized that the school preparing a creative critical thinkers and lifelong learners which

are capable of coping the changes in the environment and with competition. After

analyzing the school’s mission, vision and goals he school provides access to quality

instruction. Based on my understanding this means that the teaching-learning process will

be effective because the teachers should do their best to find appropriate instructions for

the learners. For this reason, the student will find reason to learn and go to school every


The teachers should teach the student to become God-fearing and friendly so that

the students should posses good characteristics in dealing with other people. They also

impose that there will be a good parent-teacher relationship. Also have conceptual and

technical skills to engage productively.

b. So I need to

So I need to be more competitive, manpower for different sectors of the

work. And providing what the environment needs. The process of setting goals allows

students to choose where they want to go in school and what they want to achieve. By

knowing what they want to achieve, they know what they have to concentrate on and

improve. Having sharp, clearly defined goals, which students can measure, will allow

them to take pride in accomplishing those goals. By setting mission, vision and goals in

my cooperating school students can: improve their academic performance, increase their

motivation to achieve, increase pride and satisfaction in performance, and improve their

self-confidence. In order for us to learned, it is important to listen of the cooperating

teacher’s advices because she is the most reliable source of information in terms of

teaching and in the classroom routines that you will be performing. She had enough

experience of what you are going to do. I addition, preparation of the things you need to

use in your class ahead of time will minimize your stress. Planning is very important for

possible outcomes will maximize your success as a future teacher.

Synopsis on establishing classroom routines

I want to employ proper routines and procedures which would serve as


students guideposts in doing the tasks assigned to them. Unbiased and constructive

approach in implementing discipline towards them as well as setting rules and regulations

in the classroom should also be established. In doing so, the learners would know how to

manage their time efficiently on their own. They will be able to develop discipline inside

the classroom and build leadership among others.

My observation of the following:

  • a. Attendance

My observation with regards to attendance of the students there is a permanent

seat assignment was established inside the classroom so that the assigned student or the

teacher can easily check the attendance every classes. My cooperating teacher impose

seat plan in every section.

  • b. Passing of papers or books

Regarding with passing of papers or books they exchanged papers with their seat

mates or passing the paper in front and then exchanged by row to avoid cheating or

exchanging answers.

  • c. Getting materials

All instructional materials were in proper area/place. The teacher assigned two

students to get the materials and then distributed it to their classmates. The students were

well-discipline by my cooperating teacher that they obey what the teacher instructed.

  • d. Making assignments

In regards to making assignments and reminders will be given before the class

ends. The students worked their assignments at home and not in the classroom.

The routines that I established as a better classroom manager

Routines are the backbone of daily classroom life. They facilitate teaching and

learning. Routines don’t just make your life easier, they save valuable classroom time.

And what do most important, efficient routines make it easier for students to learn and

achieve more. Simply, the routines that I will establish inside the classroom are the

The rules that I set in my class

School rules are important to follow because they enable the class to run smoothly

so that everyone can learn and benefit from what the teacher has to offer. When students

follow school rules, everyone, from the teachers to the students, can achieve their goals in

the classroom. The following are the rules that I will set in my class:

Be punctual

Be respectful

Be responsible

Raise your right hand if you want to answer

Do not answer in chorus

Do not talk to your classmates or seatmates when the teacher is talking in front

Be cooperative, attractive and energetic during class discussion

Call your classmates with their first name not their family name

Off your cell phones when the class started

Do not copy the answer of your classmates, it’s plagiarism

Don’t be talkative

Do not laugh when your classmates trying to answer

Follow simple instructions

Always set your English activity notebook and books

Arrange the chairs properly at the beginning and ending of the lesson

Follow directions the first time they are given

Treat others with respect

Do not leave the classroom without permission

Keep hands and feet to self

Work your assignment at home

Reflection a. If I already have my own class in the future, I want to employ

Teachers with well established and clearly definedclassroom

managementstrategiescan make fantastic positive effects on their student’s behavior. You

may be wondering, how do you successfully implement classroom routines?

Incorporating effective routines into your classroom will take time, consistency, follow

up, and effort. The classroom climate that is conducive for learning that is non-

threatening yet business-like.

If I already have my own class in the future, I want to employ discipline

among my students. I want them to become well-disciplined, so that in the long run they

can use to their everyday life. Establishing classroom routines can contribute to the

change of behavior among the students. There must be discipline among the students

where they will follow all the time. It will develop their positive attitude towards

something and they are aware the do’s and don’ts. There must be a good relationship

between the teacher and students. It is a classroom where specific classroom rules and

procedures are clear. These classroom rules and procedures are discussed on the first day

of class. Students are involved in the design of rules and regulations. There are

techniques to acknowledge and reinforce acceptable behavior and provide negative

consequences are employed. Clear limits for unacceptable behavior are established. There

is a healthy balance between dominance and cooperation. The teacher is aware of the

needs of different types of students. The teacher should fully aware of the happenings in

class. And students’ responsibility for their own behavior is enhanced. The most

important, a classroom is more a product of interaction between and among teacher and


Week 1 (January 10- 13, 2017)

My first day of internship start today! I was designated at Zamboanga del Norte

National High School (Campus II). We, interns went to the principal’s office to passed

our documents and for us to know which critic teacher we are assigned. The principal,

Edgardo S. Cabalida,Ed.D. let the English coordinator orient us what to be done in the

school premise. After the orientation process, the English coordinator introduced us to

our cooperating teacher. I am blessed that I am assigned with Ms. Christine Arlyn

M.Agunas who apparently became my critic/cooperating teacher for this particular course

study (Practice Teaching).

My cooperating teacher was approachable. As I enter the room where I am

assigned, I felt very nervous yet excited to finally meet them. I introduced myself to my

cooperating teacher then, she introduced me to the students and I’m happy for they

respond positively. She had a class at that time so she let me sit for awhile and continue

the class discussion. The teacher used an effective teaching strategy that was suited to the

needs and interest of the students. She let the students to be actively involved in the class

discussion. She constantly called the attention of students to let them participate and to

hinder them from talking with their seatmates. After discussing the lesson, the teacher

reminded the students to study the lesson at home. Then the class ended. It was a section

Newsvine (SPJ) my cooperating teacher’s advisory class. She asked me for a few

questions regarding the demonstration. After that, I explained to her with regards to

twenty-two (22) lesson plan including the special and final demonstration that I need to

be done in the school and fourty-four (44) evaluation sheets. She looked for topics that I

am going to demonstrate for the week. She told me to have my first demonstration for

the next day and gave me the topic immediately.

This week, I have started my demonstration teaching. I handled four classes, two

classes in the morning and two in the afternoon. I am blessed that I assigned to her

because I know I can learn many things through her guidance and advices regarding to

my demonstration teaching.

Week 2 (January 16-20, 2017)

This week, I have demonstrated only once. I am assigned to discuss about

Capitalization. I handled two sections in the morning, section Newsvine, the smartest,

talented and cooperative class among all section followed by Amorsolo and in the

afternoon, sections Violet and Yellow. I am amazed whenever I gave them the activity

they were cooperating, suggesting and giving their ideas about the topic. I believe they

were diverse from each other but they all have the capability to actively participate in

class discussion. No need for me to discuss everything so I let the students to discover the

lesson and discussed it in their own. I let them engaged in activities that I have given to

them so that they would directly learned the importance in proper capitalization. I gave

them the differentiated instruction in that way they could actually explored more to

learned when to capitalized the words and what to capitalized. I discovered that students

had their own uniqueness in dealing with their difficulties that is why as a future teacher

you need to have the reinforcement to those learner which hardly coping with their


This week the way of my teaching and my confidence were improved little by

little. Sometimes, I’ve found hard times in instilling the minds of the students because

they have different behaviors in dealing with their teachers. Educators need to help

students examined their learning styles since evrey learners have different strategies,

approaches, and capabilities for learning.

I realized that teaching is the noblest profession in the world for they molded the

youth to become good citizen in the society.

Week 3 (January 23-27, 2017)

This week, my cooperating teacher didn’t allow me to have my demonstration for

she had to continued her lesson about journalism for section Newsvine and for the rest

sections; Amorsolo, Violet and Yellow for the individual reporting. We have talked about

the teaching strategies and methods that would catches the attention and interest of the

students. She told me that as a teacher you are the facilitator and let the students talked in

the discussion. There were 25% talking for the teacher and the rest would be for the

students and engaged in differentiated instruction. It’s better to let the students engaged

more in activities because in the implementation of the K-12 program, teachers serve as

facilitators not to spoon-feed the learners/students. Another thing, she said an effective

learning takes place when learners feel challenge to work towards appropriately high

goals; therefore, appraisal of the learner’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses, as well as

current knowledge and skills, is important for the selection of instructional materials of

optimal degree of difficulty. She told me to have different activities that surely get the

interest of the learners to cooperate in the beginning of the lesson until the end. I was just

observing my cooperating teacher’s class for the week and based on what I have noticed

she can handled the class very well, there were interaction happened in the discussion

that the students participated and used different strategies and methods in teaching.

In that way, learning can be more enhanced when the learner has an opportunity

to interact and to collaborate with others on instructional tasks. In that reason, I believed

that learning is influenced by social interactions, interpersonal relations, and

communication with others. The contact experience between teachers and the students is

given value because it is an authentic meeting on sharing ideas and affections.

Week 4 (January 30, 31 -February 1,2,3, 2017)

My fourth week in demonstration teaching went well. This week, I demonstrated

only once. My topic was all about Collocation. In my first period it’s easy for me to

handled the class because the students were very active, eager to learn and there was an

interaction happened in the discussion. In interactive and collaborative instructional

contexts, individual have an opportunity for perspective taking and reflective thinking

that may lead to higher levels of cognitive, social, and moral development. The students

challenged me for the reason that they were intelligent and observable to their teacher’s

way of talking and teaching.

In the afternoon, I found hard times in explaining and helping the students to

understand the lesson because not all of them were willing to listen the discussion and

this is where the slow learners belong. They just listened to what I’ve imparted to them,

when I asked them questions they’re too silent even though I simplified the questions for

them can be able to answer. Though, it was hard for me but I’ve tried my best to help

them understand the lesson before the session ended. I want them to learned something

from me every time I taught them. So my technique, the activities done from the fast

learners were different in the slow learners because I believed that there is an individual

difference in learning.

As we all knew, individuals learned with different styles so educators need to be

sensitive to individual differences. They also need to attend learner’s perceptions to

which these differences are accepted and adapted by varying instructional methods and

materials. When learners perceived that their individual differences in abilities,

backgrounds, cultures, and experiences are valued, respected, and accommodated in

learning tasks and contexts, levels of motivation and achievement are enhance.

Week 5 (February 6-10, 2017)

First day of the week, I have my demonstration about Collocation specifically the

types of collocation the adjective + noun & noun + noun. The same routine in the

morning, I have my first class in section Newsvine followed by Amorsolo. They have

already the knowledge of what collocation was all about because I taught and presented

the topic on week 4. In the afternoon, I changed the activities that suited to the learners’

abilities and interest.

Second day, we continued the topic- types of collocation verb + noun & adverb +

adjective. Used other activities to helped students participate in the class discussion.

In the third day, I taught them about “Speech improvement through Jazz Chant

Enhancement 1”. I taught them first the basic, on how to deliver a jazz chant with proper

pronunciation. I let them read first the jazz chant short conversation entitled “ Sh! Sh! Sh!

Stop that noise” then I gave them activities and let them performed it in front of the class.

Fourth day, I was not able to have my actual demonstration because I have

prepared for my special demonstration that was scheduled on the fifth day.

The beeping of my alarm clock sounded like a countdown and waked me up early

in the morning. I rushed in the school and posted quickly the instructional materials that I

prepared for today’s demonstration. I felt nervous waiting for my observers when they

arrived I welcomed them and gave the materials they needed like, lesson plan and

evaluation sheet. My topic was all about “Parallelism”. It was successfully done with the

helped of my student’s participation, interaction in the class and cooperation. The

comments, suggestions, and good points of the observers given to me motivated me to do

well in the teaching profession.

Week 6(February 13-17, 2017)

This week, I was the one who taught the whole week. I continued the lesson about

the types of collocation the verb + prepositional phrase & verb + adverb. In second day,

my lesson was all about Word Cline that increased the interest of the students because

they were challenged to arrange the words in their order of intensity. The next day, my

lesson was all about Speech Improvement through Jazz Chant Enhancement 2. We

continued from the specific to general way of having jazz chant presentation. Let them

have their own piece either through research or creating their own. I let them practiced

until they mastered their piece. I was thankful that my actual demonstration teaching was

successful for they cooperate with their peers/group tasked.

Week 7(February 20-24, 2017)

Time is fast approaching, and this is my seventh week of practice teaching in

ZNNHS. I was tasked to discuss about Idiomatic Expressions at the same time gave them

an activities that suited to their interest by letting them to prepare the differentiated

instruction. They could perform better if they cooperate with each other in a group.

The next day, I taught about Modals in which I let them construct their own

sentences using modals, and completed a sentence using appropriate modals. The

students were able to construct in their own and they easily understand the lesson.

Another lesson I have tackled this week was all about Transition words. They

understand the lesson because they have a prior knowledge about it. I let them to identify

transition words and used in the sentence. There were differentiated instructions being

used throughout the discussion. Sometimes, they found it hard to do the task especially

the lower section but I motivated them to perform the activities successfully.

Week 8 (February 27,28- March 1,2,3, 2017)

Another day to remember as the day goes by. I have my demonstration this week;

one of my lessons was all about Adjectives. In this lesson, I let them to identify the

adjectives in the sentences. Write sentences using adjectives and gave them differentiated

instruction to have fun and enjoyment while learning.

Next lesson was Figure of Speech. I let them to identify and construct a sentences

using simile. This lesson was not familiar with them. So, there was a hard time for me to

discussed in my students because they don’t have a prior knowledge about the lesson. I

used inductive approach in presenting the new lesson for them. I can easily catched their

attention by calling their names to answer the questions and gave assistance if necessary.

At the end of the lesson, I evaluated how far the students learned the lesson from the


The fourth lesson being tackled was about Verb. I made my instructional

materials interesting so that it captured the curiosity of the students. I successfully

delivered my lesson for them. Based on the result of their answer sheets they understand

the lesson.

The last topic I taught them this week was all about Transitive and intransitive

verb. I used the inductive approach in teaching the students then; I let them construct

sentences in their own. They able to construct sentences and I knew that they’ve learned

something until the session ended.

Week 9 (March 6-10, 2017)

The moment that I’ve been here I never expected to learned this much. I’m

thankful and blessed given a chance to boost my self-confidence and enhanced my

knowledge to role a class. As time goes by, finally! I have my final demonstration

scheduled this week. I prepared everything from lesson planning and my instructional

materials that I am going to use. My lesson was all about “Parallelism”. Research for

different methodologies which could be used to suited to the needs and interests of the

learners. I am happy that throughout the discussion my students cooperated and interact.

They behaved and participated in the given tasked. Based on the result of the short quiz

they all passed and it means that they learned something from my final demonstration. I

appreciated the observer’s comments and suggestions even my good points. Now, I

should developed more my skills and discover techniques that will be helpful the future


The next day, I had a chit chat with the students and discovered their behavior. I

have a chance to roam around in the school and discovered the facilities they utilized. I’m

happy that this school helps to grew up as a person. My cooperating teacher guided me in

the accomplishment of my practiced. I’m thankful to everyone who helped me and being

assigned here in the institution. I learned many things that encouraged me more to strive

harder to reach my goals in life.

Working with pupils/students

The experiences I have with my students were very memorable for me because

every student had different great abilities. Even though, sometimes I had difficulty of

handling their misbehavior but we were in a good relationship as a student teacher and a

students. A quality personal relationship that provides stability, trust, and caring that can

increase learner’s sense of belonging, self-respect and self acceptance. Being a student

teacher was an opportunity for me to used instructional practices that must be appropriate

for learner’s level of prior knowledge, cognitive abilities and their learning and thinking

strategies. In that way, the students were willing to learned more and help to established

learners feel safe to share ideas, and actively participate in the leaning process. I found

out different techniques and methods to catch the attention and willingness of the

learners. The students help me to love more teaching profession because what knowledge

could you gave them if teaching is not your passion.

Every time I worked with my students I felt that I was already a real teacher

because they relied on my ideas about what they worked on. It challenged me so much. I

am very thankful and happy to have them as my students because it’s not just they have

learned from me but also I’ve learned with them. I’ve learned to adjust to the kind of

learners I have. I should overcome to the kind of learners I have in order for me to

develop my skills and enhanced my capacity in teaching. These experiences I have will

remind me in the future when I am in the field of teaching already. All I can say that,

working with the students is the greatest accomplishment of being a student teacher.

Working with the School Personnel

My experiences with the school personnel were very challenging part of me being

a student teacher. They treated us (interns) we were part of this profession, so they were

told us that we should act that we were already a teacher.

The Critic Teacher

My critic teacher was excellent in the field of teaching. I learned a lot from her.

She reminds me of the strategies, methods and approaches that are going to use every

time I am going to have my demonstration. She’s particular on SMART; Specific,

Measurable, Attainable, Reliable and Time-bounded way of teaching the lesson and the

classroom climate. It should be a product of the interaction between and among teacher

and students. On how to deal with the students with good rapport. Sympathetic listening

to students not only about life inside the classroom but more about students’ lives in

general. Knowing the students individually, their likes and dislikes, the personal

situations affecting behavior and performance. Consistently behaving in a friendly

personal manner while maintaining professional distance with the students. Provide

reinforcement and encouragement for the students during tasks. Helping students

succeed by using differentiated instruction. And encouraging students to be responsible

for their own learning. These are the things that I’ve learned from my cooperating

teacher. In the near future, it is not difficult for me to handle things especially to my

students because I have now the knowledge on how to deal with them. Lastly, in teaching

profession you should be firm of what you’ve promised and I am motivated to continue

on the field of teaching.

The Cooperating Principal

Working with cooperating principal enhances my knowledge on how to role a

school especially o how to handle school’s activities. He internalized the school’s

mission and vision. He organized the activities to be done in the two campuses with the

teachers. He monitored from time to time to follow up the development of the school,

teachers and the students. He managed very well his area of responsibility.

Other School Staff

Working with other school staff in ZNNHS was quite good. They treated each

other nicely as well us interns. When my cooperating teacher asked me to gave

something to them they were approachable. There was one of the staff she’s my teacher

before when I was high school students as we have seen each other inside the campus we

usually talked for something. Another scenario, there was a math teacher who asked me

something personally until we shared about our lives when he was still a student of

JRMSU and about my status as a student teacher. He was a product of where I’ve studied.

An English teacher, that I use to be my friend when I have started my practice teaching

in the school premise. We talked a lot of things on the first day of internship until we

have seen each other on the hallway, she let me borrowed a book and treat me a snack. I

can say that, the school staff were very approachable, friendly and kind based on the


Working with the Community

My experiences working with the community of the school was nice and good. I

liked the environment a lot because of the fresh air we breathe and there were a lot of

stress. The environment was conducive to teaching-learning process. They have the

competitive and excellent teachers and students. The school was the competitive and

hardworking learners studied with high honors. The community was non-threatening,

safe and secured and friendly towards each other.

Community Survey

To be in a new environment of course you need to observe first the people you

are dealing with. We survey the community of barangay Turno, I felt their warmest

welcome. They show respect to us as what they have shown to other teachers and they

work well together with us. Based on the survey the people of the community were united

and hospitabe. They were respectful people towards one another. The community was

cleaned and non-threatening/peaceful.

Population: 7,173 (NSO 1995 September Census)

Land Area: 592.7318 has

Land Use: Residential, Institutional and partly Agricultural

Attractions: Camping Site, Dofel's Orchidarium

Local Produce: (Major) Rice, Corn, Mango, Banana and Camote

(Minor) Cassava, Gabi and Vegetable


A tradition is a belief or behavior passed down within a group or society with

symbolic meaning or special significance with origins in the past. The community of

Turno had the tradition of celebrating fiesta, greetings, and the people are very

hardworking and strive to make life better for the next generation of their family.

Actual Classroom Teaching

During my actual classroom teaching was a challenged for me every day. We

believed that learning in schools emphasized the use of intentional processes that students

can use to construct meaning from the information, experiences, and their own thoughts

and beliefs. You need to exert effort to it. From the lesson planning, preparation for the

materials to be use so that it could catches the attention and interest of the students. They

were learning as well as enjoying. I felt nervous on the first actual demonstration

teaching because I don’t have any idea what kind of learners they were and how to meet

the standard of my cooperating teacher. As time goes by, nervousness was already gone

and it helped me a lot to boost my self-confidence and challenged me to communicate my

ideas as well as increased my level of thinking beyond cognition. I am able to use the

different strategies and methods of teaching that fits the kind of learners I have. As a

future teacher we should overcome our fears so that in a long run we are confident to

faced circumstances and solve it on our own.

For two months having an actual demonstration teaching I can say that I am well-

trained with the help of my critic teacher’s advised and guidance. I can use my

knowledge from the field to the field of teaching in the near future’s career. Most

importantly, in actual teaching you knew how to impart knowledge to your students and

mold them into competitive individuals.

Special Demonstration Teaching

During my special demonstration teaching was quite good. I have a good grades

given by my observers. At first, I felt nervous because I saw my observers it was uneasy

to talked in front but I bear in mind that I can do it. The nervous I’ve felt was gone when

I presented the lesson until the end of the discussion. My topic was all about Parallelism.

I’ve prepared everything from lesson planning and instructional materials to be used.

They listened carefully when I am going to discuss the lesson and they were able to

answer the questions when I asked them. I knew they’ve understand what parallelism is. I

was able to conduct the lesson very well because my students were cooperative,

interactive in the class discussion, and participative. I was very happy after my special

demonstration teaching because I made it. The good points, suggestions and comments

given by my observers as well as to my cooperating teacher helped me to improve more

the way I taught. I am also thankful to our Heavenly Father for the guidance, strengths,

and blessings to accomplish well my special demonstration successfully.

Final Demonstration Teaching

During my final demonstration teaching it was successful because I prepared

everything for the last demonstration. My lesson was all about Context Clues. One week

before the schedule for final demonstration I prepared already a detailed lesson plan and

instructional materials in order that I can study the lesson for more days. I wanted to have

a successful demonstration that’s why preparation was very important. I’ve done

researched for the collection of information about the topic, examples, and best activities

to motivated the students to have an effective learning outcome. My students really

helped me, they participated and interact in the class. They cooperated with each other to

accomplish the tasks given.

My observers were Prof. Nechor S. Cadorna and Prof. Jograce E. Jordan and

thankful that they gave me a passing grades as well as my cooperating teacher. I really

appreciated the suggestions and good points of my observers based on my demonstration.

I was very happy that they informed my lapses in teaching scenario especially in showing

“enthusiasm” and etc. It helped to boost my confidence to teach and pursue in teaching.

All I have to do is to developed my skills and discover new techniques that will be

helpful in the future purposes.

Self assessment for being a Student Teacher

As we all know, teaching is a noble profession. It requires a long preparation and

more training sessions for them to be equipped in facing the real environment that awaits

them in near future.Student teaching serves as an internship in the profession education

where theories, knowledge, attitudes and skills develop through course work and

observation are fused in more meaningful interpretation through practical experience in

actual teaching situation. In education, the student teacher should undergo practice

teaching because this is very challenging but it is important part of training as a future

teacher in developing and molding ones abilities and skills.

Student teacher is very challenging part among your experiences as education

students. As I have evaluated myself as a student teacher for two months I encountered

many flaws and trials in teaching, I knew those circumstances happened helped me to

develop my teaching capacity and ability. I evaluated how far I have gone through in my

teaching skills, used the different approaches, strategies and methods in teaching the

students effectively. I could say that, I was improving in a sense that, I was exposed to

the field of teaching and in the real world of classroom situation in which it was a

challenged for me as a student teacher. In teaching, my knowledge on how to deal with

the learners, implementing appropriate teaching methodologies, relating the lesson to real

life situation, motivating the class to participate by means of reinforcement, engaging the

students to some sort of activities and letting the students exercise “learning by doing”

were enhanced with the guidance of my cooperating teacher. I was enlightened by the

things that you need to do being a real teacher soon. I was improving but I need to study

more for the reason that teaching-learning process will be effective. Student teaching

experienced really helped me identify the negative and positive that I possessed in

handling the class and developed my communication skills. It contributed a lot of things

and I am now acquainted with different things to do being a teacher. I learned that as a

future teacher you should set realistic goals, track their own progress, set clear

expectations for the performance of the students. I guess these experiences molded me to

become a good teacher in the future.

Personal point of view of Student Teaching Experiences

As a student teacher, my point of view in teaching experiences was very

momentous yet challenging. Student teaching practices help the future teachers in

preparation with their field. Student teachers have different experiences but mostly, they

find difficulties in making lesson plan and instructional materials every day. Based on my

experiences I could say that teaching profession is not easy when you don’t love what

you’re doing because when you love teaching you were enjoying it.

At first, there were many obstacles we faced as student teacher like, financial one

of the factor that can affect you as a student teacher because you need money for

researching and instructional materials expenses, personal problems and hardships but

despite of those trials I and my co-interns survived until the end of the practicum. We

made it! And I realized that teaching is really my passion and this is where I belong.

Practice teaching helped me to be guided on the right things to do especially in

handling students with different backgrounds of interests. It is an irreplaceable learning

experiences of a student teacher could have. Furthermore, student teaching experience is

one of the foundations to become an effective educator someday.

That’s good to hear.



Activity 1: Now, let’s have this activity called “Board Races”. I have words here and you are

going to make it one sentence. From the right side, first and second row you are the group 1 and next

two rows you will be the group 2. In the other side,


st and 2 nd row will be the group 3 and the last two row are group 4. You have the same words to form


so the first group who can post their cards on the board and form the right sentence you will receive points. There are words that are not included in the sentence. Arrange the words within 3 minutes. Am I understood class?

  • C. Presentation

Yes ma’am.

Are you ready? What is the sentence being form?

I should sing, swim, and dance. The words a and dancer.

Okay, what are the words that are not included? (I will explain the sentence) Based on the sentence given what do you think is

It is all about the same structure of the sentence. It is all about correct structure of the sentence. It is about Parallelism.

our lesson this morning? Very good class. Parallelism has something to do with our lesson this morning.

Before we proceed, let us read first the things that

you will accomplish.

(The students read the objectives)

  • D. Discussion

What was our lesson last meeting?

That’s right. What is a collocation?

Our lesson last meeting was all about Collocation.

Collocation is the combination of words formed

It is important in a sense that we already have the

when two or more words are often used together in a way that sound correct.

knowledge of the past lesson that we could possibly add to what lesson we are going to tackle.

Very good. Going back, who among you here know what Parallelism is?

Parallelism means that similar parts of a sentence have the same structure: nouns are with nouns, verbs with verbs, and phrases with phrases.

In other words:

Parallelism in writing means that similar parts in a

Exactly! Parallelism means that similar parts of a sentence have the same structure: nouns are with nouns, verbs with verbs, and phrases with phrases. Note: When similar parts do not follow the same structure, you have created Faulty Parallelism.

sentence (2 or more) must have the same structure. Their parts are comparable and balanced. Allows writing to flow smoothly and helps avoid misunderstanding.

I will give you an example of the following:

Ex. nouns with nouns The store is good for fruit, meat, and to buy cheese. Is the sentence parallel class? Very good. What is now the correct sentence?

No ma’am.It should be nouns with nouns and the

Let’s proceed to verbs with verbs parallel structure

phrase to buy cheese it is a verb phrase. The store is good for fruit, meat, and cheese.

Ex. I should run, swim, and go walking. What have you notice in the sentence? Is sentence


No. go walking is a phrase, and it is in a form of

present progressive. The verbs swim and run are in simple present tense. I should run, swim, and walk.

Let’s continue to adjectives with adjectives parallel

structure. Ex. The girl is gorgeous, neatly, and humble. What is now the correct sentence? Very good. Another example for adverbs with adverbs Ex. I drove calmly, slowly, and careful.

It is wrong because neatly is an adverb not an adjective. The girl is gorgeous, neat and humble.

Is the sentence correct? Why? Very good. What is the correct sentence? Did you understand?

It should be carefully because the word careful is an adjective. I drove calmly, slowly, and carefully.

Okay, since you understand the sample sentences given stay on your group let’s have another activity. Activity 2: You are ask to give 1 example of a parallel sentence of:

Yes ma’am.

Group 1: nouns with nouns &explain Group 2: verbs with verbs &explain Group 3: adjectives with adjectives &explain Group 4: adverbs with adverbs &explain I will give you 5 minutes to do it. Afterwards, you can present your work and select one representative to report in front. Your time starts now!

(The students perform the given task)

Well done everybody! let’s execute the mommy

E. Application

Yes ma’am.

D’sclap. Are you familiar with that?

(123(2x) Very good (2x))

Activity 3:Let’s have another activity. Group 1 vs. group 2. The rows of each group will compete with one another. The 1 st row of group 1 vs. the 1 st row of group 2 as well as the 2 nd row and the rest of the rows. You will be given different sentences in each row for you to answer. As I give you the words you are going to arrange it into one parallel sentence. There is a word/s that is/are not included in the sentence just to make you confuse so be wise. The group who can get a higher score will be the winner. Not parallel sentences:

(First round)

Flying is fast, comfortably, and safe.

The parallel sentences:

Ana likes eating, to sing and painting.

Flying is fast, comfortable, and safe.

I respond by call, visitingor e-mailing.

Ana likes eating, singing and painting.

You need to work quickly and work decisive.

Yes ma’am.

That’s right. Since you already understand, let’s

answer this short exercises.

Parallelism means that similar parts of a sentence have the same structure: nouns are with nouns, verbs with verbs, and phrases with phrases.
