    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 Reading Lesson

Monday I taught my first lesson in my 1st grade classroom. I thought I had everything together and then… I just bombed it. My lesson was thoroughly planned, but when I got there, started it, heard the students have completely incorrect answers to my first pre-assessment question… I freaked. I was teaching key details to my students, so when my students were unable to tell me what a main idea was, after covering it for a few weeks with my CT, I got really thrown off. I think I just became nervous because in addition to this, my professor was also observing my lesson. The students didn’t really understand my lesson, but thankfully there weren’t any behavior issues or things like that going on too. I’ve talked to my professor about it and I’m actually being scheduled for another observation because we think it was just really a fluke day. I have another lesson I’m already teaching next Monday, so I am working ahead and confident that it will go better.
