    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!

Aquarium Visit


   Saturday was my Life Science’s mandatory field trip to the Great Lakes Aquarium. This is the third time I’ve been there, always with groups, so I’ve always gotten in free! Last time I went was with my Science Methods class, where we focused on a lot the lesson kits the aquarium has to offer teachers. Duluth has so many museums and history centers that teachers can use, so we’re always applying them to our classroom lessons. We went to the aquarium with my class Saturday to focus on two things, the biology information the aquarium offers, as well as the teacher resources. Our first part of the day we explored teacher resources. Afterward, we got to go into the basement and look at all the behind the scene stuff. And I mean everything. Even the dead fish that were frozen for study! Afterward, we did get stuck with a huge packet of questions, so we got scattered all over trying to find the answers in time, as well as figure out to do a lesson plan for half a day at the aquarium. Which was also another assignment. After lunch, we went to a UMD research boat vessel and learned about what they do there. But the aquarium was definitely the bet part! It was even the otter’s birthday!
