Field Experience Pt. 2

by / October 17th, 2018 / No Comments »
Almost every semester (if not every semester) of the elementary education program is packed with a field experience where one goes into the classroom to put the ideas one learns in the classroom into everyday life. This year I am at Stella Maris Academy with a 2nd grade classroom. I always hope to be put into the upper grades (i.e 4th, 5th or 6th grade) but it is good to get experience in all levels.

Color Theory

by / October 16th, 2018 / No Comments »
I am taking my art general education course this semester and I am learning a lot. The class is called Color Theory and it is a two-credit class. Prior to taking the class, I had no idea how important color is! I have been able to learn the effects color triggers to the brains, emotions, in corporate branding, art, and much more. I learned the cultural aspects of color their history and how it was created compared to how its created today. The course is only for the first term of a semester so I am almost finished with it.  have one final art project due by the end of the month and I am looking forward to it.

Advisement

by / October 16th, 2018 / No Comments »
I had my advisement yesterday with one of my professors. Advisers are assigned to every student during their sophomore year based off a professor in the department the student is studying in. For instance, as an accounting and finance major, my adviser is an accounting professor. This is a great opportunity to have personal conversations with a professor who know the area of study very well in campus and out of campus. During advisement, students share their goals, classes they will register for the upcoming semester, as well as have many conversations. My advisement yesterday is most likely the last one. I know exactly what classes I will register to and I am looking forward to finishing off my senior year!

Advisement at CSS

From October 10th to the 19th, CSS students are required to meet with their advisor to discuss how to move forward with their major and plans for the future. For me, this is a scary time because it is hard to think about how everything you do in college will impact you for the rest of your life. Read the rest of this entry »

My ESA and My Roommates ESA

I have written a blog post before on emotional support animals and how to get them on campus here at CSS. A recap of the process is to contact the Center for Equal Access and have a bond with an animal already. I have a small, white dog named Javi. He helps me because he is calm which helps regulate my behavior. I also live with a husky puppy. Javi is not quite as energetic or playful as the husky so we as roommates have to figure out how to make it work best for everyone to live together in harmony. Whether it be making sure to pick up toys at the end of the night so no one steps on them and hurts themselves or stopping the husky from entering my room so Javi has a safe space to live and breathe without having to worry about the husky goading him into playing. One of our solutions was a doggie gate (pictured below). As you can see, there are two doors, one for me to get in and out of and one for Javi so the other dog cannot get in but he can. Originally, the husky Could get in that small hole but she grows quickly and it is much harder for her now. Read the rest of this entry »
