# Student Teaching at the Boston Latin School

## The Boston Latin School

I completed my student teaching practicum at the Boston Latin School, the oldest school in America. I started teaching in late February and finished up in May. For the majority of my 11 weeks there, I taught two Algebra II courses and one Algebra I course; my students were freshmen and sophomores. Every day was a unique learning experience: from dealing with discipline to making math both understandable and enjoyable. Here's some pictures of my last days as a student teacher...

 Here is Mr. Power - he was nice enough to watch my students take a test on probability while I took their snapshots. L-R: Matthew, Nydjie, Jackie, Jillian, Joanna, Sian, Genna, and Chivon. L-R: Pierre, Danielle, Adeola, Laurie, Tina, Katty, Sin Lei, and Richard. L-R: Nathaniel, Dinh Phat, Annette, Kashif, Lyzz, Matthew, Adrian, and Nydjie.

 Yes, functions do make me smile! Paula Demore and Gerry Power, my cooperating teacher... in their ever-tidy office! Room 312: I used this as my office, since I had no homeroom. Here's the view from my office!
