Many people can look at the life of a Fontbonne student in different ways. I for one think that my life as a Fontbonne student means family — on and off campus. In many of my classes, there have been special bonds formed, even if it’s just for a semester. The bonds between the class […]

Those Questions

by Deanna April 9, 2012

At every family event, I get the same questions. Those questions. The ones about college, and majors, and dorm life. Those questions. This Easter, my favorite question was “So what’s your major this week?” And it’s not like I have changed my major at all… Don’t get me wrong, I have questioned if high school […]

“Why did you choose Deaf Education?” is the second most-asked question behind “what made you decide to go back to school?” Well I have always loved education, and years ago, I almost went back to school to be a teacher. The thing that stopped me however was the system of it all in terms of […]

Would you like to know my major? Well, tell me what you think! I am a Fine Arts Major, and I’m also planning on doing Education as well. I’ve been drawing ever since I was about 5 or 6 years old. Boring, right? Not quite. As the years came by, I began to open myself […]

Why I chose Fontbonne

by Alumni Posts February 13, 2012

I was working as a substitute at a neighboring high school. While there I met a true friend who was filled with resources.

Philosophy of Education

by Alumni Posts October 10, 2011

So I’m taking a course called “Philosophical Foundations of Education,” and one of the assignments is this big essay on my personal beliefs and values when it comes to teaching.
