Classroom Experience

North Element ary / 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 Elementar y / 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 Element ary / 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 Elementar y / 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.
