Early Field Experience

Hello everyone! For those of you who don’t know for education majors have to complete an early field experience which consists of ten consecutive day of observation with in an Agriscience Classroom. I was lucky enough to be placed closer to home at Whittemore- Prescott High School located in Whittemore, Michigan.

As the day went by and it became closer to my start date I found myself becoming nervous and worried about what I had to complete in the limited time. However looking back now I realize that that was probably a little silly since I actually had extra time at the end of the 10 days. However, during this great experience I was able to work one on one with students and I was even given the chance to teach. I believe that this better prepared me for the classroom as I was able to try multiple techniques and strategies to get the feel of what worked and what didn’t.

As for those agriscience education majors who have yet to complete their EFE the most important advice if one should take any is to teach, because I feel it will tell you if you are in the right career field. As for me I truly cannot wait to get back in the classroom and be able to teach again. Best experience ever!

Yours truly,
Rachel Schoville
