    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!

What am I Doing for Spring Break?

But what spring break do you speak of? The one that almost all other CSS students are participating in and doing cool things during? Oh that one. Yeah, I’ll be student teaching. So when you are student teaching, you follow your elementary school’s schedule, not your college’s. I’m definitely bummed because for the past 2 years I’ve spent my spring break on the PIFT, doing community service across the country with a bunch of people. Going on the PIFT had become annual way of pausing and enjoying life and reflecting. It’s definitely a mindful week. It feels weird not being with all my friends. Last year, we all added each other on Snap Chat, so I have been watching everyone’s stories as they road tripped to Boulder, Colorado. It’s definitely a senior-moment, because it’s one of the first things I won’t be doing anymore as I graduate. I won’t be a “college kid” anymore. Putting a disclaimer out there though; my elementary schools actually has two, 1-week breaks, so I can’t be completely sad. I have one extra week off than my friends and I’ll get to take advantage of it to job hunt!
