What Real SMU Students Are Doing Now

Crunch Time

December 10, 2011

With only a couple days left of school before finals, it is crunch time! So many professors have projects or papers due. This means that for the next week or so, all I will be doing is homework and studying! BUT, once this is all over, we have our Christmas Break and we will be … More >

Handball Champs!

December 9, 2011

Last night my intramural teams went 1 for 2 in pursuit of league championships. To start the night off, my team had the dodge ball championship.

You Know You’re a Teacher When…

November 29, 2011

I found this passage from online from Jeff Foxworthy. I got a kick out of it and I hope you do too. If this characterizes you, chances are that teaching is right for you! You get a secret thrill out of laminating things. You can hear 25 voices behind you and know exactly which one … More >

Privet!! (Latvian for hello!)

November 29, 2011

One of most awesome experiences from this Latvian camp was how “at home” our students and the staff at our school made us feel. Their hospitality began as soon as we left the airport. We actually landed in Vilnius, Lithuania and then drove to Daugavpils, Latvia because it was a shorter drive than to fly … More >
