In the north snow may be normal, but down here in south carolina we rarely get the white stuff.
Needless to say we got a day off from the semester and a late start on the second day. When class
resumed we had a lot of catching up to do. At Clemson University all ag ed second semester seniors who
plan on teaching have to go through a three week class that refreshes our memory on some of the vital ag
mechanics principles that we learned in our first and second year. This is a great opportunity that Clemson offers
us to get in the teaching mode. My duties over the next three weeks will include: hands on projects, peer teaching,
and lesson planning. This class give us as students a great opportunity to get a head start on the students that
we will soon be teaching. While I prepare to start my student teaching I am overwhelmed with excitement about the
mysteries that lie ahead on my teaching journey. While I don't know what lies ahead I do know that the education that
I have gotten from Clemson Universities agricultural education department has prepared me to the tasks that are ahead of
me. I hope that everyone else has a great start to the semester and hopefully we will all have some exciting stories to share
once we start teaching.
