Reaction to Shadowing Experience I really enjoyed my shadowing experience. I thought it was a lot of fun and I still really want to pursue this career. While shadowing Barbara Levens she kept me very busy. I helped her organize her classroom and get ready for the day activities. I also helped her with the kids and even taught them some sign language. Things got a little crazy sometimes but I still thought it was a really great experience. She told me it was very hard to get a job in teaching these days and that I should take every opportunity I can to receive more experience to put on my resume. She also told me I should get a dual major in order to look more well rounded in an interview.
