  • General info.
    The school I visited was AnselmoVillarrubia Elementary School.
    Located in Aguada.
    The school principal, Emilia Lorenzo received me.
    This is the school where I’m doing my practice. I did my observations specifically in the classroom I’m giving classes.
  • things I observed and found at the school
    Good things
    Bad things
    The director is always
    present and she pass by
    the halls to supervise
    School is always clean.
    Students always use their
    Secretary Club
    Has a library
    One problem with the school is that teachers are very competitive to the point of competing among themselves.
    Another problem is that some printers (5-6) aren’t working and teachers aren’t willing to fix them because they will also have to buy the ink.
  • Technology in the school
    All English classrooms have
    • computer labs. (30 laptops each)
    • desktop computers
    • Smartboards
    • projectors
    • TV, DVD, radio
    • * two printers
    • * laminator machine
    • * reading area: Reading Garden
    • * games area
  • Cont.
    All the classrooms have desktop computers, printers (some printers don’t work) and projectors.
    * Most of the materials in the English classrooms were obtained through a grant made by my English Cooperating teacher.
  • Programs they use
    Almost every Friday students have the opportunity of using laptops to do their tasks. Kindergarten and First grade for example know how to work with Max Write (Word), Encarta Kids and Max Paint (Paint).
    Second and third grade know how to use Max Write (Word), Encarta Kids, Max Paint (Paint) and Power Point (basic).
    They also know how to insert a picture and insert a movie.
  • ideas of how the problems could be fixed
    Since the major problem I found was that teachers are too competitive, then I have NO idea of how to fix it, because I can’t change the way they think. It is a personal issue. They all have their own opinion on how to teach and what to teach even though there are standards and expectations to be follow.
    On the other hand with the printers and computers that aren’t working, teachers should buy them if they really want to use them to create innovative classes. They should also buy ink, because if we wait for the Department of Education to do it then classrooms will stay the same for years.
  • administration and staff
    My opinionon the backup the administration and staff would give to fix this problem if money was available is the following:
    I know they will love to have new printers, ink, and
    computers to be able to use them. They will do
    whatever is necessary to obtain new materials.
