MEET KRISTINA WYATT,

Prospective Educator

Ever since I was a little girl lining up my toys for lessons, I knew I wanted to be an educator.  Shaping young minds and enriching student lives through learning are both an honor and a privilege.

I am a mother of four, and I am blessed to have three special needs children, one of which was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome under the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  Three of my children are diagnosed Sensory Processing Disorder.  Special education is near and dear to my heart, and I hope to be able to support the success of special needs children throughout my career.

Field Experience

Moore Elementary
5th Grade Classroom

20 hours
Observation hours for the EDU200A course, Introduction to Professional Education Experiences.
My time in this 5th grade classroom was focused on observing instructional strategies.  I led a lesson based on the story of “The Sign of the Beaver” in which students, upon reading the book, created a tribe and tribal emblem for themselves. The project included creating a design that used symbolism to represent the students and a short essay on how the symbolism of their design describes the student and their values.

Montague Elementary
2nd Grade Classroom

20 hours
Observation hours for the EDU312A course, Educational Psychology.
During my time with this 2nd grade class, I focused my observation on learning styles and strategies, the learning process and the role in which the teacher plays in the learning process, and application of developmental and learning theory. I led a lesson on informative writing in which students created a brainstorm chart, rough draft, and final draft of an informative topic of their choice.

Linden Charter Academy
Kindergarten Classroom

20 hours
Observation hours for the EDU330 course, The Exceptional Learner.
My observation was focused on working with special needs students and assisting them throughout my time.  I worked with several speech and language impaired students, one student with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and one student with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD).  With these students, I assisted with daily activities and assignments. I led a math story lesson in which students were given a problem to complete and allowed to use a variety of ways to complete the problem, including (but not limited to) mental solving, counting on fingers, drawing a picture to show work, using blocks, and more.
