Finally! Spring Break! Is it just me or was Spring Break very much needed? It feels like Winter Break was forever ago, but that is not the point of this post. What am I going to be doing? Well, I will be decompressing for a day and then it’s time to get to work. I will be working on and improving my projects that I am currently working on. I have some new ideas currently cooking and I am in the process of drawing out blueprints, prototypes, etc. For what exactly? I am not going to disclose that information. Who knows, you may see & use it in the future! Time will tell. Until next time guys, stay classy!

Hello Fonties!!
Spring break is finally upon us. I wanted to share my plans for this upcoming week off from classes.
Unfortunately I will still be working on spring break, but I will get to switch it up to some day shifts instead of my usual night shifts. I plan to sleep in as much as I can and use as few alarms as possible. I am hoping the weather clears up and I will be to go hiking or take in a trip to the zoo. Although we have a week off from class, I will still be on campus Wednesday night for my 8 week night class. I plan to start working on my final projects so they don’t all pile up on me the last weeks of school. Crazy to think we will only have a few weeks before finals when we come back from spring break!!

Have fun this spring break Fontbonne and be safe!

xoxo,
Claire

Branching Out

by Carly on March 13, 2017

in Academics,Career Paths

This semester, one of the education courses I am taking is called The Contemporary Classroom. One of the class requirements is to observe a teacher for at least 30 hours and teach a lesson plan that you wrote. Today I started my first day of observations with the Mehlville High School theater teacher, Mr. Moore. I will also be with him all of next week since I am on spring break from work. I am excited to branch out and meet people in a different district! I live close to Mehlville (in South County), and know a few people that graduated from there with nothing but great things to say. So that’s what led me to choosing that location. And from the very beginning of setting everything up, Mr. Moore has already been very helpful.

Today the students in the Mehlville district were off school so the teachers could have a professional development day. So I met Mr. Moore and a couple other teachers in the district at Oakville High School for that. The main topic for the day was student engagement, and how to get students off of their cell phone during class and rehearsal, and truly focusing on what’s in front of them. This is a growing problem in all districts, and an ongoing discussion and trial-and-error of how to combat this issue. Next week I will be observing in the classroom setting for all of Mr. Moore’s theater classes. Wednesday is going to be the day that I teach my lesson plan after I’ve been in the class for a couple days. Fingers crossed that I have a positive learning experience and all goes well! With the first day down, I’d say so far, so good!

Helpful study tips

by Mary on March 6, 2017

in Academics

For me I have had different study habits each year that I have been a student in college because for me it is based on what classes I have at the time. I used very different study habits when I was in religion class freshman year as compared to sophomore year when I was in Chemistry class. It has also changed based on where I live. When I lived on campus in Medaille I studied mostly in my dorm room on the weekends when I had upcoming unit tests. I would also sometimes study up on the third floor of AB when I was preparing for a Chemistry test because I could bounce questions off of my classmates. So, if any science majors read this article I would suggest studying up on the third floor of AB with your fellow classmates. Sometimes last year in the evenings if I had a really big test coming up in one of my dietetics classes or chemistry, I would study at one of the big tables on the second floor of the library.  I also found this as a helpful space to study last semester for a few of my classes even as a commuter.

Another major tip that I was given my freshman year was, if you have a major test to study for you should turn off your phone while studying so that there are less distractions.  There were a few times last semester when I would work in the library and I found this very helpful as a way to be productive.  Some people are just so attached to their phones and it can be good to turn it off even if it is just for an hour, then you can turn it back on.  An additional helpful study tip that I can think of if you are studying for a large test is to take time to make study cards either online or in index cards right after you learn the vocabulary. This way you can start studying them right away and study a chunk of the cards at a time, so that you are not cramming at the last second.  I know I found this to be useful last semester when I was in biology because it is a course with a lot of vocabulary terms.

I hope everyone does well on their midterm exams or final exams if you have an eight week class that is ending and I hope these tips are helpful.

My Study Tips

My best piece of advice is to listen to instrumental music (like what I posted on Valentine’s Day).  It will keep you focused and relaxed. Without lyrics, there is nothing to distract you from your work. For those who have trouble sitting in one place, like moi, use the Pomodoro Technique.  This technique is simple and […]
