The Chowan Educational Department did a fantastic job in preparing me for the Teacher field overall. There were plenty of classes that I still use knowledge from to this day. One in particular would be the classroom management class. It is very hard to understand what you would do in certain situations in a classroom setting but the professors at Chowan instructing the class give you a good understanding of many situations that could occur in a classroom environment. That class gave me the confidence and the understanding of how to run a structured class as well as behavior advice with the students. Another thing the educational classes at Chowan gave me was time in many different classroom settings. I am currently at a High School in Craven County but I got to experience the lower elementary levels all the way up to the High school level. Quite shockingly the experiences in the lower level I took plenty of classroom tools that I use in my classroom today.
