During my time here at the Barrington High School, I have
participated in the Work Study Program. For my part of the program,
I worked at the Barrington Middle School in the Materials Lab. While there I
was instructed to watch over Mr. Topazioís sixth and seventh grade
I had also built a small Armoire completely from
scratch. The only reference I had was a larger Armoire that had been
built by a previous student in the Work Study Program.
I had originally wanted to shadow an architect at a
local business here in Barrington. On their advice, I was instead
placed at a work site in which I could get hands on experience
working with the finished diagrams.
Thanks to this career change, I was able to
experience many different career possibilities in which I was
exposed to being a teacherís helper as well as a student teacher.
This portfolio is a reflection o my time and effort that I have put
into making the most of my work study experience.
