The Power of Three
This class will benefit you in the following ways:
-You will have fun!
-You will learn skills that will directly transfer to your life right now and beyond!

-You will have an opportunity to shadow someone in a career/job that interests you!
-Your points of view will be challenged in a way that makes you stronger.
Please keep me in the loop when it comes to issues in your life that will help me to better understand your progress!
I care about you. You are a unique and special person, not just a student taking up space!
So let's have a FUN and meaningful semester!
One last thought...
WHO you are matters! You are not just a student taking up space in the room!
How you treat others is a reflection of who you are!
This component is crucial to a successful experience in this class!
This will be an important factor for you to consider throughout the year. Many of the future benefits are based on your ability to earn a B or higher in this class!

Professional Development
First semester course work includes studying child development, how we learn, and how best to supervise, work with, have fun with, and teach kids!
*Lab work at Valley View will include Mondays with Ms. Martone's KG class, Fridays with Ms. Selzler's 1st grade class, and Wednesdays observing in classrooms 2nd-5th grade and P.E./Music on a rotation basis.
February - June
Second semester course work includes continued study of working with children, best teaching practices, the history of education, and lesson plan development/presentation.
*Continued lab work at Valley View.
End of the school year and time for summer!
Completion of the full year Teaching Academy can take the place of the 40 hours of pre-admission observation experience required prior to enrolling in the EFC 210 2 credit Seminar class at C.W.U.
(the first class in the Teacher prep program).
Completion of the full year Teaching Academy can replace the 60 hour EFC 330 Field Experience required of all ED students prior to student teaching.
Articulation agreements with State Colleges and Universities:

Completion of the full year academy links with schools of higher education throughout Washington. You can earn credit or requirement waivers that document your work above standard high school achievement.
In addition to articulation with C.W.U. you can earn waivers replacing some requirements at Washington State University, Yakima Valley Community College, and Walla Walla Community College.
However, articulation may not be limited to just the above schools. You are encouraged to advocate for yourself and present your portfolio to any university upon applying for entrance to the school of education!!
You must receive a B or better to be eligible for college credit waiver/articulation! You are expected to complete a portfolio by the end of the year (or by the end of the Academy completion) that proves you are ready to enter a teacher certification program. You will collect entries and artifacts for your portfolio during the entire course that document all 42 Teaching Academy competencies.
If you plan on going to C.W.U.
Attendance is a vital component for success in this class. Most of the work/learning of this class cannot be effectively "made up." If make-up work is available it will only be offered if your absence was PRE-ARRANGED!!
It is very important to arrive to class on time.
You will lose 5 points every time you are tardy whether it is excused or not.
Excessive tardiness will result in detention and may lead to suspension from the teaching academy.
Observations and Field Work
(Lab time working with KG and 1st graders at Valley View as wel):
You will be expected to arrive on-time daily- especially on the days you are scheduled to go to V.V.
It is your responsibility to communicate with me when scheduling conflicts arise.
You are required to exhibit superior behavior. Being a role model is a serious responsibility.
Language must be positive and appropriate.
Your work ethic must model dependability, dedication, and good judgment.
Appropriate dress on "Buddy" days is
particularly important. This includes wearing your name tags at all times! (It is a required security measure).
ATTITUDE must be enthusiastic
and helpful!
When visiting another school, you must respect school rules, teacher's expectations, and the children!
Did I mention never ever ever ever use profanity? And don't be caught texting...
No hats may be worn in the classroom or when visiting schools.
Grooming must be clean and appropriate.
After 6 absences, you will have an automatic interview with me to determine if you can continue on in the academy. Each absence will result in a loss of attendance points. These points cannot be made up. You will not be penalized for school-related absences. (Sports, Clubs, Band, Music, etc.)
My teacher's contract with the school district provides for 12 paid days off for illness each year. You will be given the same courtesy. This will be broken down and split up per semester.

You will also have a comprehensive and professional portfolio to share with admissions offices and potential employers. This will be impressive to all.
(Whether the job is in the area of education or not).
Additional Perks
In addition to the opportunity for post-secondary credit and program exemptions...
-You will have developed a great reputation with teachers in the district! This can lead to the opportunity for letters of recommendation and potential job opportunities.
The first step to success in this class is understanding my expectations of you. You also need to be willing to contribute positively to the class environment. And... you must LOVE working with kids!

Your 1st grade Buddy
And possible future students of yours!
Additional Tid Bits
-Unlike the other classes I teach this one will include homework expectations. I will do my best to build in-class work time but because of the new English credit opportunity there will be higher expectations for student work.

-Make up opportunities for labs are only available for school related and excused absences. You will only be allowed to make up 6 labs per semester. After that you will lose 20 points each time you are absent from a lab.
-There will be field days when you walk to Valley View and back on your own. I need to trust you as a group to follow the rules and expectations and represent EHS in a mature and responsible way!
Make a daily choice to contribute positively to this class!!
I don’t hold grudges. I forgive and forget. And the kind of student you have been for other teachers doesn’t factor in to my judgment of you!

You get to redefine yourself every time you walk through my door!

I plan on bringing my best self to this classroom every day and I hope you will do the same!

You come to me with a clean slate!
You are also eligible to earn English credit by taking this class! Make sure you have met with a counselor about they type of credit you need written on your transcript!
This is going to be a great year!
It's going to be
