Recap of the first snow

by / October 18th, 2018 / No Comments »
On October 11th, I woke up and looked out the window and to my surprise, I found the white fluffy stuff you see all winter long in good-old Minnesota. My ESA adores snow til the end of the earth and I couldn't help my delight at him booking it around the snow. His happy little face at the snow swirling around and digging through the half inch of snow to find the still green grass. I wasn't expecting to find this present when I woke up in the morning but I was happy to see my dog so happy rolling and bouncing. So much so, that I was a tad late to class and after explaining the situation to my professor, he totally understood as his own dog had done the same thing this morning. This is also a short example of how it is easy to connect well with your professors here and how kind they can be.

Wow! Today is a great day in Duluth. For the past week, it has been a bit chilly outside and cloudy. However, today looks like summer! It is important to take advantage of warm weathers during Fall season. There is a lot to do in Duluth during warm weather. A a jog around Duluth is a great way to both get a good exercise because of the steep hills but also have opportunity to see tons of great views! I also recommend walking around canal park or going to Enger tower for a nice view! If brave enough, got to the lake and perhaps get wet! but the water will be extremely cold!

Accounting Jackets

The accounting club just put in a purchase order with a nearby clothing vendor for accounting jackets for the club members. The jackets have St. Scholastica logo in the top front right and also the name "accounting" right below it. In the back of the jacket, our last names are visible. Club members had the option to choose the color of jackets from black, gray, and navy. I am looking forward to the jackets. it is way to be able to identify oneself based off of majors affiliations around campus. It is also a great way for members of the clubs to be able to feel more closure by partipating in a smaller community with those of similar education goals. I am looking forward to getting my jackets. I chose the navy blue!

Field Experience Pt. 2

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.
