More adventures in teaching!

I took my advisory class on a field trip to visit Westminster College. Our school has introduced a new 'program' (really, it's more like a philosophy) called No Excuses University. Among other things, we are trying to talk more about getting ready for college and planning for college. As part of that, each advisory represents a different college or university. Being a recent Westminster Alum, of course, I called dibs on Westminster. We were lucky enough to get funding through GEARUP and got to take a group of about 45 students to learn more about Westminster. It was a pretty good day and I think the students enjoyed themselves. There was a brief incident on the bus about five minutes from school, but other than that, it was a pretty good day.

This is Ms. Buie gangsta requested by my students.
