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.

     Well it is almost Christmas break and I just finished up the last exam that I will ever take.  It is a refreshing feeling ,but also

a bittersweet one.  Im about to enter the work force as an agricultural educator.  I'm very anxious to see what student teaching

will bring my way next semester.  I have grown so accustomed to life as a student, and that time is almost up. YIKES!!! All joking aside

I really am excited to get in the classroom and begin filling minds with the knowledge that has been poured into me over the last 5 years.

Really not knowing what to expect has gotten me envisioning what it will be like.  This blog is a great opportunity for me because I can

look back hopefully five years from now and relize how different it is probally going to be (in a good way).  Well thats all for now, I hope each and

everyone of you has a great christmas break, sharing it with the ones you love, and celebrating the birth of the one who loved us above all else.


God Bless,
