Part I. Contextual Information and Learning Environment: The Ramón Quiñónez Medina High School is located at the Yabucoa district in the Humacao region. The school is, to me, one of the most complete and best schools in the district. It is located right in the middle of the town next to the Teodoro Aguilar Mora High School. The school is always clean and has a feel of fresh air and comfort, but it still lacks places or spots for the students to hang and share. Some classrooms have air conditioning and others do not have any. This detail seems to affect the student’s learning because sometimes the climate or the weather does not facilitates the learning process. To me, it is very important for the students to have a comfortable space to be in so that the learning process can be more successful. The teachers in the school are very nice and willing to offer their help always. The school director is a very busy man. The comments regarding him from the rest of the teachers were not so great. They say that the majority of the school’s work was done by their last school director and that he hasn’t done much for the school. They also seem to believe that he has some preferences with some teachers. My personal experience with the school director was pretty much the same as the comments told by the teachers. We had very little opportunities to talk to him without him having to rush out for some reason. He didn’t get that much involved with us teacher candidates. Other than that, I had a pretty good relationship with the students and the school personnel. The diversity in students is incredible. We have many talented kids, kids that are in the honor roll, students that are leaders and promoters of change. There are also special education students and teachers that dedicate themselves to help them grow, learn, and get involved with the rest of the school community. We also have students that are not doing very well academically. What I feel these students need are teachers that are thoroughly devoted to the educational, personal, and social growth of these students. The students enjoy school activities
