Whittier - Elizabeth Mundt - 4th grade, 5 hours
As I continue to observe Mrs. Mundt and her teaching style in the classroom, I notice the small things she does for every student. I think this really helps her students understand that she cares about their needs and wants. She follows up with her rewards and consequences, which most of the students respect. She also makes herself very clear about expectations of her students work and behaviors by writing a daily message for them to read, first thing in the morning.
I also spend lunch with Mrs. Mundt and we go and eat with the other 4th grade teachers. It's nice meeting them and I realize that I have seen one of the other 4th grade teacher's students while I was shadowing Edie during Art class. When the students have recess, a lot of the students in art still ask for me - which I find endearing.
