Meet Crescent Senior and Future Teacher Jessey Holtzclaw! 🍎⭐ Jessey is one of three Crescent Seniors awarded a $24,000 SC Teaching Fellows Scholarship to support her in her dream to become a teacher! Jessey completed her field placement at Starr Elementary in Mrs. Lauren Sanders' 2nd Grade Classroom. Jessey said, "Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. What I didn't know is everything that goes into being a teacher. During my second-semester field experience, I got to see what it was like for a teacher regarding MAP testing and let me tell you, it was stressful. It never scared me away, though. It made me want to do it more. I saw my cooperating teacher encourage her students when they thought their score wasn't good enough or didn't grow. It took a lot from both the students and the teacher, but in the end, all that mattered was that teacher-student moment where you get to say, 'No matter what your score is, you are brilliant.' I aspire to be that teacher that allows them to see past those stressful test and learn to love school. I want to be the person that reminds them how bright they are so much that when they are in a high school AP class and want to quit, they will remember that they are so much smarter than that and keep going." Jessey has been accepted to Anderson University and is excited to major in Early Childhood Education! Congrats, Jessey! ⭐ #FutureTeacher #SCTeachingFellow #A3Teaches
