GREENVILLE, S.C. (April 21, 2017) – Sarah Minnick, a senior elementary education major at Bob Jones University, serves as a student teacher this semester at Alexander Elementary School located in Greenville.
Minnick, a resident of Cardwell, Australia, teaches 17 students in a second grade class. Her responsibilities include teaching lessons, managing the classroom, and supervising the students during lunch and recess. She also attends weekly faculty meetings.
“Clinical practice has been eye opening for me,” says Minnick. “Before I began, I wasn’t sure I wanted to be a teacher. But because of this student teaching opportunity I now realize how much I love teaching and that the Lord has given me the ability to teach.”
