Time: 8:00 am -11:25 am
12:55 pm - 3:35 pm

The day was really busy because of the different events that happened while I was at Petal High School. The day consisted of putting books in to the system, helping check-in and -out books, help collecting food for the people up north who were affected by the resent disasters. The donations were awarded with the students being able to wear a non-uniformed t-shirt on that Friday or pay fines that they had on fine with in the library. Most of the students came in and choose to use the donated can to wear a t-shirt. The box that the cans were in was full by the time I left the high school library. I expect that some of the students would come in the next morning to get their ability to wear their own t-shirt. They had to initial next to their name just to indicate that it was them.

This is my last day to do my practicum hours. The hours amounted to about 182 hours and 15 minutes. I enjoyed my experience with Ms. Sorensen, the faculty and the many students at Petal High School. Thank you everyone.

In the morning, I proctored for the State Exam. When I was out of the testing room because the students were finished with the Biology test. I was out by 11:00 am and went to the library. Put away some books that had come in to the library. Helped where I was needed. I helped Ms. Sorensen with putting the students' over-dues and fines notices together and took me a long time with help.

Worked as a proctor in the morning and then went to the library for the afternoon. Things I did for the rest of the day were put books on shelves, helped students get the materials they needed, and helped check in and out materials or equipment to the patron. So, next Tuesday, I will be proctoring for the State Test.

12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Was a busy day with in the library. A lot of the students were needing items like pencils, pens, binders, folders, and many other things. The students were also trying to complete projects that their teachers had assigned. The books that I had processed and were ready to be put on the shelves, were put on the shelves. As soon as the books were on the shelves, more came to be put on the shelves. So, I put the couple of books away.

I heard that the school needed some proctors for the State testing for the different days from Ms. Sorensen. So, I went to the guidance counselor and signed up for Thursday and Tuesday. I had hope that this experience will be a good experience.

I learned that putting books on shelves is fun.

Tuesday was a fairly busy day. The books on the checked in shelf were put away. Classes came into the library to use the laptops and write papers. Photocopies were made for students and printers were found for printing. Items were sold like notebooks, mechanical pencils, home made clear folders were made to be sold, and construction paper. Helped students find books on different topics. Books were entered into the system and lables for the spine and bar code labels were printed for the books to be fully processed. Started the process of putting labels on the materials.

Lesson was that keeping busy lets time fly much faster.
