    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!

My Education Field Experience

All Education majors must put in field experience hours, where they go into a classroom and observe and possibly teach a few lessons themselves. I currently am taking Reading/Language Arts Methods, which requires me to put in 50 hours. These 50 hours will be completed at the local elementary school I was placed at. This past spring I met my cooperating teacher and I stopped in a week before school started so I could meet with her again and get to know each other. Today, was the first day of field experience overall. I spent 2 hours there in the morning, then an hour in the afternoon, before I started my job there at the after school program. I really enjoy working with my CT, but I definitely see some challenges coming up for me in this class. I realized we have some ELL students, which is a new experience for me. Thankfully, I can speak one of the student’s languages, so hopefully she’ll feel more welcome and can understand what’s going on better. My goal this semester is to be very professional, but also make sure to befriend the school staff. I have started already by walking up to anybody and everybody introducing myself and saying hello. More updates will come throughout my experience!
