    Courtney's Bio:
    I'm an Elementary Education major at CSS. I also plan to minor in Spanish. Having done PSEO, I came to CSS with more than 60 credits. I'm part of Volunteers Involved Through Action (VITA), Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), and other clubs! Dance has been part of my life for 10 years, and now I'm trying to fit it into my schedule again. I love spending time watching Supernatural and Once Upon a Time, and reading Harry Potter and other great books. I live in a suite with 3 other girls, and we are always finding something fun to do around campus!

Sick, Sick, Sick

On Monday, 5 of my students were gone at school! I figured they’d all eventually trickle in or each had different reasons for why they were gone. Nope! They were all sick! Poor kids. In college dorms, everyone gets sick like *that*. But in elementary schools, it’s so much worse! It must have trickled down to me, because Tuesday I gradually got the worst body aches ever. I even ended up going to the school nurse to have her take my temperature! I ended up going home a little while after that. Because it’s spring break, not even my roommate was here. It was kind of weird taking care of myself alone. I spent a lot of time sleeping and drinking water, so I finally feel better. With teaching, as soon as you’re feeling good enough to teach, you definitely want to get back to teach. So I had to teach more today. In college, you can skip a class and still catch up. In the real world, there’s many jobs that won’t flow well unless you are there every day or have things prepped. This is just another thing I’m getting used to about being an “adult adult”. Oddly enough, now that I’m feeling better, I feel kind of confident and excited in myself that “I survived”! Check that off of things I need to do be considered an adult and many of the quirks that come with my career!
