A letter to my fellow seniors

Posted by on May 10, 2017 in Perspectives | 0 comments

I remember all the good times I have had here: from roaming the college in the middle of the night to the friends I have met and been with since day one. I cannot seem to stop replaying all the memories that have happened on this campus.  It seems silly, but there are so many experiences that have happened here that I never would have thought I’d be lucky enough to experience, or unlucky enough. The memories that I’ve made will stick with all of us forever. Now, as I approach that stage, I can’t stop thinking about all of the chances I didn’t take, but also, all that I did. I can’t stop thinking about everything that I missed by not always being here. But, in the same way, it is more about the fact that Maryville College...

On Wednesday, May 29, eight teachers gathered in Maryville College’s Anderson Hall to discuss teaching with this year’s student teachers.  Students left feeling as if some questions had been answered, but were also left with plenty to think about. The eight visiting teachers were each graduates from Maryville College who graduated in the past few years and came back to offer some insight to the upcoming teachers. Though each of them has had different experiences and taught different grades and subjects, they all offered something special to their students and to those in attendance. As the night began, each of the visiting teachers offered their words of wisdom to those who would take it. “Be that positive person that kids need,” graduate Julianna Bowman said. Bowman explained something so important about teaching that may educators forget—the kids. It is...

MC senior steps into the world of student teaching and embraces every moment

Posted by on Mar 8, 2017 in Perspectives | 0 comments

Each day is a new adventure. Each day is a new obstacle. Each child is precious. Each kid deserves the chance to succeed. As a future teacher, I had no idea just how true each of these statements would turn out to be.  I believed in each and every one of them, but the reality does not always sink in until it’s staring you in the face. Since entering Maryville College, I knew that I wanted to teach. I knew that teaching was something that I needed to do for me, but I had to admit it to myself first. I knew that I fully believe in the future of all children and the effort that they put in. I knew that each child has the capability to become whatever it is that he or she wants to be,...

Celebrating differences this month and always

Posted by on Feb 22, 2017 in Perspectives | 0 comments

There has been a rich history with black Americans, but now, more than ever, is the time to celebrate people of color for their souls and who they are. There are many great individuals that the common American has heard of—and loves. For example, Marin Luther King Jr., Malcom X and even Rosa Parks all have an influence on what we have shaped America to be. At Maryville College, we highlight diversity and celebrate the fact that we are all so vastly different. Even though one of those differences is skin color, the...
