    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!

First Day of Class

Today was the first day of classes. I can honestly say I feel overwhelmed with the workload, but not in the sense that I feel under-prepared to do the workload, if that makes sense? This is my last semester and every class (besides Painting and my upper level division writing course) are for my major. This semester I will spend a lot of time in study rooms, the art room, or a classroom. Today for classes, I had Assessment, Reading Methods, and Field Experience III. I only had three classes, which doesn’t sound too intense, but they each are an hour and forty minutes long! It can definitely be draining sitting in the same classroom going over things for 4 straight hours (Reading Methods is in the same room as Field and they are back-to-back). I love my professors in the Education department, so time flies much faster. In Assessment, I’ll be learning of course, about assessing students. In Reading Methods, I’ll be learning about the pedagogy related to reading skills. In Field III, our adjunct professor who is a retired principal will be monitoring our field experiences in the classrooms, as well as teach us a few tricks of the trade.
