My name is Amy Palamar and I am Teacher Candidate from UBC Okanagan in Kelowna, BC. I am about to begin my teaching practicum here in Kelowna at a local High School with grades 8-12. I was born and raised in Whitehorse, YT and have only been exposed to the school systems from my childhood, so entering a school in BC is a new experience for me. However, I have had many opportunities in Whitehorse to work in various elementary and secondary schools ever since I graduated high school.
I have been assigned two sponsor teachers at the school I am going to do my practicum at who teach different grades and have different teaching styles. I am looking forward to working with both of them with their respective styles and techniques in the months to come. I will be teaching a flipped classroom with one teacher which is something I recently became aware of and am very interested in using it in my future, so I am excited to be exposed to it in my practicum!
Stay Tuned! Im sure I will have a lot of thoughts and feelings to share as I enter this adventure!
