Internship Success Stories

Tiffany Puryear"Good reading strategies help students to read in a very efficient way. In order to improve TCAP scores and ensure that students gain full understanding of how the state test will be conducted, the staff at Southwest Elementary School allows their students to participate in a pretesting program. I suggested that the students be placed in small groups, which will allow the students to use the strategy of peer tutoring. This strategy allows students to discuss among themselves and understand from their peers. On the re-teach over half of the students scored proficient or advanced. I will continue to improve my teaching, listening, and observing skills during my internship experience. I will ask questions and research other strategies to assist when needed. I will do whatever it takes to assist students in becoming successful."
