Volunteer work organised

I'm very lucky that two schools have agreed for me to come and volunteer with them.

I won't be naming schools on this blog in order to protect their privacy (and mine). However, School A has allowed me to observe a Grade 4 class one morning a week and School B (my prac school) has allowed me to help teach the Literacy Program with the Grade 3/4 class one afternoon a week.

I feel extremely lucky to have such helpful mentors around and really appreciate their support at the start of my teaching journey!
