    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!

Special Needs/Inclusion Field Placement

I finally have my placement for my Special Needs field experience! There was a bit of delay because the person in charge of placements quit a few weeks before school started, so most placements (unless they were done the previous year, like my student teaching one) were backed up a few weeks. I am at the same school for both my Reading Methods and Special Needs placements, so that is a big sigh of relief. Special Needs and Inclusion is a course that all Education majors have to take. It covers many topics surrounding and within the Special Education field. We learn about IEPs, 504s, the ADA, and so much more. So far it’s been a lot of decoding the terminology of a lot of things before we can really dive into the material. During PSEO I took this class as well but it didn’t transfer in, given that CSS does not accept higher level curses within your major requirements from other schools. When I had my placement before, I was in a middle school setting working with EBD students. I am kind of happy that I have to retake the course because this time I am with a speech therapist instead in an elementary setting, so it really puts a twist on things.  I have already talked to my CT and I’m starting next week!
