9. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
What was most valuable for me was setting up the activities and doing it with the children. I find that working with the children daily is a learning experience for me because I see what will works for them and what will not work for them. I love working with children and I just want to keep on learning. Working with Pat was very knowledgeable for me because she is very understanding, supportive and she knows children very well. She makes the school atmosphere feel like home and fun.
The on the spot help when needed and the support we gotten from Aunty Pat and teaching staff at Aulani Preschool. Aunty Pat was there to answer any questions or concerns we may have had. She was flexible with assignments and deadlines. Teaching staff under Aunty Pat were so professional and also willing to help with anything or questions we may have had.
10. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
I really don't have anything to say in this area because I like to learn. The more knowledge I can get the better for me!!
Reading the articles. I understand the importance of the articles but still that was my least favorite thing to do of the course.

24. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the TA's teaching style and methods?
Working as a TA, the TA (I)need to be a team player, be able to work with children, communicate well with the teacher and always being there to help the teacher. For me I always try to be there and help at all times because its about the children and working together as a team. I want the teacher (uncle Ena) to always be able to depend on me and ask me to help him when he needs it, with out being afraid or uncomfortable to ask me.
Hands-on and right there to help answer a question or with a situation. Always flexible with our ideas and willing to try our crazy ideas for their lesson plans.
25. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I really enjoyed working with Pat!!
I don't think there is anything that need to be improved. The classroom was set up for us to learn and grow as teachers. Aunty Pat was there to help if we needed help and was always there to help us improve in any of the areas we needed to improve in. She gave us ideas and suggestions and let us put in our ideas and suggestions.
26. Other comments:
I really enjoyed myself in this lab and seminar. I was a little nervous coming into another teacher's classroom but Aunty Pat and Uncle Ena has made me feel comfortable and helped me to become a better teacher for the children I have at my center. There were there to give help and was always open to any suggestions any of us student teachers may have had. They worked with us to develop great lesson plans and helped me get a better understanding of children, lesson planning as a team, and to become a better teacher overall. Thank You Aunty Pat and Uncle Ena and all the teaching staff at Aulani Preschool.
