meet Ronda: I really want to go!!!
It is the end of March now, and I really wish I could go! I entered this class because I wanted to go on the trip and this was the next best thing. I did not expect to get this much out of the class or my lesson plan development. I am the eldest of 4 and I think this makes me a natural teacher. I created a similar lesson for my little brother years ago. I used the lesson I created years ago to create my new lesson for the Dominican Republic teachers. In creating this, I have learned what tools for teaching I take for granted while putting my lesson plan together for those that will be going on the trip. I wanted to be able to teach the children everything I know on the subject, but when I was forced to be realistic about my lesson, I realized that there is only so much I can put into one lesson at a time. Besides, there is always time for other lessons to be sent later! I am excited for those that will be able to attend. I would love to be able to see the children receive my lesson, as well as the others in the class. We have all worked very hard to create these lessons for the children there. I hope that the children enjoy and learn as much from our lessons as we did putting them together. I will end as I started, and I really wish I could go!!!
