Teacher observations

1. The students that I observed in the classroom were of

school, I got to be reminded what it was like, how difficult
it could be as a high school student juggling school along
with a social life that at that age means everything to the
student who is at a ripe age of impressions that will mold
them for the rest of their adult life. It was quite a change
from the middle school level, the students were more in
tuned in the Mr. Chapotons senior government class. In Mrs.
