This summer I volunteered at a summer school for a day where I was able to be a stand-in teacher and lead a class. I began by teaching similes and metaphors to the young students where I explained several examples from their textbooks. After the students felt comfortable I had them to do sample questions on their own. Then I spoke to them about current events and had the students write a short piece about a topic of their choice. Lastly, I had the students write a story with the prompt, “I opened the door and,” After a lunch break I returned and proceeded to go over variables in math with students and had them write a brief essay. I enjoyed a day of teaching students in summer school as I gained experience as an educator.
