Classroom Experience

North Elementary / First Grade- Spring 2017

This was my first placement into any school on a professional level. Within my Teacher Cadet course, I observed and taught alongside Mrs. Dabney Brice. This experience really allowed me to see what all the teaching profession has to offer.

Homewood Elementary / First Grade- Fall 2017 & Spring 2018

As a member of the Teaching Fellows Program at CCU, I was placed into Mrs. Brandi Housand’s classroom for my freshman field placement. I was able to experience full days in the classroom, field trips, and teach my own lessons for the first time. I obtained over 60 hours during this experience.

Johnsonville Elementary / Child Development- Fall 2017

CCU offers freshman education majors the opportunity to experience Title 1 education in surrounding schools. I was places in Mrs. Robin Busbee’s classroom and experienced a government funded child development class for the first time. This was a once a week visit for a month long.

Homewood Elementary / Child Development-Fall 2018 & Spring 2019

As a sophomore Teaching Fellow, I returned to Homewood where I gained another 60+ hours within Mrs. Jessica Hucks’ classroom. This experience completely changed my outlook on child development classrooms and how important they can be for a child’s beginning education. I was able to solely lead full days of class activities all while only being in my second year of school.

Chopee Head Start / 3- and 4-year old’s-Fall 2019

For my Junior 1 experience, I attended Chopee Head Start in Georgetown, South Carolina where I spent my time observing the classroom, teaching lessons, and working one on one with the students. This was a first in the Head Start classroom and it was a great way to get hands on experience with low-income students who really need the extra support.
