College of Charleston Teacher Education

Making the teaching-learning connection

Operating as usual


Thank you, J Summerssmith, for sharing your words of inspiration! Good luck today on your first day of student teaching!

today is a very important and memorable day for me. the picture on the left was taken July 11th, 2014, when I attended my first ever new student orientation for the College of Charleston. little eighteen year old me had no idea what a wild, bumpy, and incredible seven-year journey i was about to dive into, as i have been through countless trials, tribulations, and sticky situations since the very moment of that first image. fast forward, seven years later, and one will see that i have taken my wisdom and knowledge gained from my struggles to create the human standing in the image on the right (taken today). my college journey was nothing less than a struggle, but through patience and kindness, I’ve finally made it to the next level. today was my official orientation for my student teaching clinical internship which i begin tomorrow and complete in just a few short months. as of this coming December, I will be a fully certified and licensed educator, which has been my passion and sense of motivation for so many years leading up to this moment. although i am overwhelmed with emotions as i officially enter the classroom tomorrow, i am confident enough within my internal being that i have what it takes to make a change for the future and create a new idea of education and personal growth for upcoming generations. i’ve worked so hard for this for so long, it’s incredible to feel the accomplishment of making it to this milestone in my life. through it all, i’ve been lucky enough to have the best motivator i could ever ask for, as has spent six years pushing me to explore the strength and abilities i now know i have. my entire life is about to change, and i feel just the right amount of excitement and nervousness. i can’t wait to see what happens next...🤓✌🏻
