There are many skills that I want to have as an EA, as I can help the students who I help and support daily as to become more successful. I can use the strategies I learned about so far in the program.
Hello my name is Emma, I known to be caring, enthusiastic and driven. I have had the opportunity on placement this semester to work with and support students with multiple exceptionalities with the guidance from my mentoring EA during my time at the school. By being on field placement I get to see first hand what kinds of responsibilities and roles I will take on as EA entering this field of work. I get to apply what knowledge I have learned in class to real life situations I will encounter.
As the courses I have been taking while in the program will teach me the skills and abilities when helping and understanding each student who I will come across and support. I am knowledgeable in working with groups as this will help me build upon my communication skills when talking and working with students, parents and colleagues while in the workplace.
As an EA I want to be confident, supportive and give encouragement to the students who I will help when on my field placements. I can do this by giving them the support and using some of strategies taught to me in the course I have taken so far in this program.
