What Real SMU Students Are Doing Now

Start of Student Teaching :)

January 20, 2012

The time has finally come that I am student teaching!!!! I have been placed in a 5th grade classroom in the Winona Middle School.

2nd Semester

January 18, 2012

Yesterday marked the beginning of the second semester of the year, which is also the last semester of my college career.

January 5, 2012

If you are interested in going into the education field, it is very important to start working with kids. A lot of my classmates have had nanny jobs over the summers, babysit, or work at summer camps. This past summer, I wanted to get more practice with teaching, so I thought it would be beneficial … More >

Christmas Break

December 28, 2011

This past week all students received their grades for the semester. It turned out that finals went well for me! It’s great to have another semester completed and to be able to enjoy winter break.

Helping Out!

December 23, 2011

On the Wednesday and Thursday right after coming home from break, I spent some time in my old elementary school observing and helping out in a fourth-grade classroom.

Case competition results are in…

December 14, 2011

After a week and a half of preparation and hard work, we gave our presentation last Friday. There were 7 judges. Some were business faculty, business office employees, and there was even one judge from Kraft! That was intimidating to hear at first because our case was all about the production of cheese. I was … More >

CAC Christmas Party

December 13, 2011

So one of the organizations I am a part of on campus is called CAC, or the Cardinal Athletic Council. It is comprised of at least two student-athlete representatives from each of the D III collegiate teams on campus. We meet every other week to discuss items that are pertinent to the student-athlete, how we … More >
