    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!

Work Study Off-Campus

Wednesday was not only the start of field experience for me, but it was also the first day of work. I work at an off-campus work study site, K.E.Y. Zone. This programs is ran by the YMCA as an after-school program at many elementary schools in Duluth. My job is to help supervisor, tutor, and support the students in the program. We provide them snacks, organize clubs, supervise and interact during free time, etc. This has probably been one of the best jobs I have had, simply because I have so much experience from working with kids 10+ hours a week, versus only 2-4 if I was just doing field experience. I get to know kids on a whole other level with these extra hours put in. Anyway, back to my first day! It was very hectic given it was the first day of school and my boss just recently left for a teaching position, not to mention we were understaffed. Surprisingly, I still managed to have fun while running around like a chicken with its head cut off. It feels nice to be considered “good” enough to have my current responsibilities, but at the same time it can be stressful.
