Education

Crazy to see how time flies! I can’t believe this semester is almost over, it went really fast for me, and I am sure for a lot of other people too. Even though these last three weeks will be stressful, I want to recall that this semester has been great. It has been a semester of learning and good experiences. I really have enjoyed my major classes, I started doing observations practices at different schools and it has been a great way to get involved in the field of education. I have met very nice people, and I have explored new places in this beautiful city. So glad of completing this year, and so ready for the next one! Good luck to everyone with all the final assignments and exams!

Summer is around the corner!

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!

Everyone has heard of the phrase: Good things come to those who wait. But in fact there is a second half to that saying that many may or may not know about – and that is: Better things come to those who go out and get them!

And quite frankly, I can personally relate to this! Not only from an educational perspective but also from an Entrepreneurial & Business stand point (the Fortune 500 Project). Again, I cannot talk about it just yet. But when the time comes, hopefully I can let you all know (assuming there aren’t any Non-Disclosure Clauses in the contract). But that is beside the point. We will cross the bridge when we get there. For now, I am excited to see what future lies ahead! I know that it is cliché to say that but in all sense of the word, it is truly exciting! I have a year and half left at Fontbonne (sad, I know..) and I am currently seeking internships! Hopefully things turn out Great! Until next time guys, Stay Classy!

“Fontbonne University, a Catholic institution sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, is committed to the common good through the daily pursuit of transformative education, inspiring students to become global citizens who think critically, act ethically and serve responsibly.”

Without getting too political, in light of the state of our world today, I think our university’s mission statement is more relevant than ever. Education is, in itself, transformative, as often enough are the institutions from which we receive our education. I loved my undergraduate university because of its commitment to diversity. Students from all over the globe attended Tennessee Tech, and I see the same trend at Fontbonne, which astounds me – our school is relatively small, yet it attracts students from many countries, walks of life, and backgrounds. In my short time at Fontbonne, I have become more culturally educated and open-minded thanks to the diversity showcased upon campus.

My favorite part of our mission statement is the last. Indeed, if anything can be done to inspire us to become these well-rounded global citizens, it should be, especially within the precarious political situation we are dealing with today. I encourage you all to examine this statement and apply it to your own lives. It will always be important to assess each situation critically before acting upon our instincts. As we complete our education and embark on our individual journeys into the world, we should make it our priority to serve those around us – we never know what small actions might be changing someone’s life.

Keep moving forward.

xoxo

We are Griffin Nation

by Anna October 21, 2016

I know the “We Are Griffin Nation” movement kicked off a little while ago, but honestly, it slipped by me because of all the homework and studying surrounding midterms.  I just got a chance to check out some of the wonderful statements other Fontbonne students have come up with.  It’s clear that “Griffin Nation” is […]

Teachers that inspired me

by Patricia October 18, 2016

At Fontbonne, there are 2 instructors that inspired me. I took public speaking with Kristen Norwood. Public speaking has not been one of my strengths and she really helped me improve. She pushed me to do things that I was not comfortable with and I am a better public speaker today. A few years after […]

The Value of a Good Teacher

by Anna October 12, 2016

You have probably had the pleasure of being taught by an outstanding teacher at least a few times over the past years of your education.  They’ve gone above and beyond to make learning not a chore, but an adventure and experience not soon forgotten.  They taught content in an effective way that related to you.
