I have joined Shaylah Stephen’s class at the Northfield Elementary school, asked students about their future careers, some said they wanna be a doctor, nurse, cop, teacher. What appeared to be noticeable about the class was its well-organized structure, but in a free style, students felt so happy and free to get their freedoms, students can get lots of free gifts by achieving good performance at greater levels. At the end of the day they will be given stars from teachers in the exchange of highlighters, pens and pencils. This plays crucial part as one of the methodologies of motivation. Students were very smart and they were not obliged to wear uniform. Small students were really interested in asking Yseali members lots of questions. One male students asked ” what is the major difference as we from Asian entering US for the first time? Harry from Vietnam said of course weather, food, environment, and people were the core differences. What surprised me the most was i was given a portrait of myself by an American cute girl, she said she loves me and handed me the picture she drew for me, It was a heart-breaking moment that I have to leave her class. I began my next journey to the Gering high school. Honestly, students in American schools all looked so mature and physically strong! I have been to Spanish, international studies, and music classes. The feeling of happiness happened when the classes are being taught by real police officers, musicians, and professional lecturers. The students seem to have lots of interests in Asian, they also sang two songs for us as gifts, also the important thing that needs to be mentioned was law class was pretty cool when students got to study real cases of crimes and lots more! I am so grateful knowing about how American education is structured.
Lastly, We have toured around the campuses and we also joined the gym and art classes which all the students looked so energized and fresh to start their classes. American has a wide range of facilities for their students, there is no pressures for student to avoid them from going to school but only creation of best environment given to encourage them to appear in class.
