Greetings! My name is Alice Ejemole. I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. I started my undergrad career at the University of Alabama, where I later transferred to Georgia State. I am a soon to be graduate of Georgia State University, where I will earn a Bachelors degree in Middle Level Education with concentrations in Mathematics and English-Language Arts. During my matriculation at GSU, I have had the opportunity to observe, co-teach, and visit a number of schools and programs throughout the metro Atlanta area; Sandtown Middle School, M. L. King Jr. Middle School, Dunbar Elementary and Recreation Center, Pittman Park Recreation Center, to name a few. During the 2015-2016 school year, I student taught at King Middle School in Atlanta, Georgia. During my practicum I co-taught in a 7th grade mathematics classroom giving me ample experience with the young adolescent during their most crucial period of growth. After completing eight months of student teaching at King Middle School, I completed my final month of study at Dunbar Elementary in a 5th grade self-contained classroom. Why Math? Why NOT math? Math is so well-rounded. Students ability to critically think while addressing their ability to conceptually understand, mathematically reason, and problem-solve come into the equation when students are engaged in the learning of a variety of mathematical concepts. Like life, math builds upon itself forcing the student (and teacher) to be flexible in every way. Language Arts, on the other hand, allows students to express, discover, and explore the five elements: Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening, and Viewing all while gaining a wide range of exposure to a variety of authors, poets, and creators. I love bringing a culturally-relevant approach to ELA and I look forward to learning more about the discipline.
