Woonsocket High School
I had the great pleasure and privilege of completing my student teaching at Woonsocket High School, a large urban public high school located in Woonsocket, RI. It is closely partnered with the Woonsocket Area Career & Technical Center, where many of my students were enrolled in vocational programs such as culinary arts and construction.
Under the guidance of my mentor teacher Claire Laquerre, I taught a middle-tracked biology class of 27 juniors and seniors, as well as an honors anatomy & physiology class of 14 seniors. Because of block scheduling, my class periods ran 70-85 minutes each. In my biology class, which was semester-long, this translated to me being responsible for teaching the majority of the entire required curriculum during my student teaching.
