Description

My self-study question focused on the connections that I have made related to a variety of topics that are involved in athletics and student-teaching. These topics include time management, leadership, communication and collaboration, and career development. Each day I recorded a daily journal about my day and I included a note about my self-study. I was able to improve upon the skills that I had previously stated, due to my experiences with playing basketball. Time management is one of the most difficult skills to master, especially as a student-athlete. I also learned that time management is one of the most difficult skills to master as a student-teacher. Student-teaching and playing basketball during the same part of the year has been difficult. It has been extremely important to manage my time, which I have learned more about throughout my experience. Leadership is also a key skill that I have gained through athletics by being a role model, as well as a team captain over the years. Setting a good example and displaying strong work ethic is something that I have translated from the basketball court to the classroom. Communication and collaboration are so important and I have learned that those who do not communicate well will not be successful. Communication is one of the keys to success in basketball, which I have also improved upon in the classroom. Furthermore, career development is a significant aspect of my student-teaching practicum as I have gained insight into what it will be like to run my own classroom. The skills that I have gained from athletics have prepared me for my future career as an educator.
