1ST Have you entered a room full of little kids and being asked a million questions at the same time?...well Most of you have the experience, but image that is how I felt the first time I entered to Ms. Vazquez classroom (slide with some questions) My name is Gabriela Valdez and my project was job shadowing an elementary school teacher (slide with a teacher picture)

2ND Head Start is a Federal program for preschool children from low-income families, operated by local non-profit organizations in almost every state in the country. Children who attend Head Start participate in a variety of educational activities, also receive free medical and dental care, have healthy meals and snacks, and enjoy playing indoors and outdoors in a safe setting. I got motivate to do this project first of all because I love kids and I want to learn more about them this was the perfect project for me. I see this not as the project I have to do but as what I want and like to do. After meeting with my mentor for several times, I finally got more involved with the kids. Their classes are Monday to Thursday from 1 to 4:30. I went for the entire class a few times, there are 18 kids in class and each one is unique in their own way, for example we have pair of twin sister s Elena and Olivia they are 3 ½ as they say when I ask. In class there was a kid that I use to babysit when he was just born because his mom had not time, I had approximately 2 years that I didn't see him so it was great to have time with him and have part on his education.

3RD Every day some kid will wine for everything and cry over every little thing if they don't get what they want but that is part of the new things they learn at school. At first I use to worry a lot when they acted like that but know I know that they do it because they want to get attention and I also know when they are doing it for real. My role was to play with the kids and other times help Ms. Vasquez with the lessons she prepare for the day. During my project working with the kids I have learned to be patient and teach them in a way they will remember and make it easy for them. Things that are really important in class are the respect for other and learn to share with others. Some kids are going to kinder garden next year and they need to be preparing for it. All this that we learn in school since we are little kids are thing that we will use in life. I also have learned that kids have to be understood on what they think and need, we as adults think that their way of thinking is silly but is really important for them. I want my life to be full of kids and I'm sure it will be.

4TH During the process I have learn a lot but know I can understand that if I want to be a teacher I have to be really patient and now I can understand teacher and how y guys feel when students don't do what
