3: Block Friends | We became block friends in just a few semesters. We have shared laughter, tears, stress, notes, and lesson plans. We sat in boring lectures together and played hard at Oxbow Meadows. This book is to remember all the memories we made together.

12: Places We've Been Over the past few semesters we have been to many schools. During first block we were wildcats at Double Churches Elementary and cubs at Midland Academy. We were also eagles at Eagle Ridge and stars at North Columbus during block two. In block three we became the bobcats at Brewer and experienced micro society at Downtown Magnet Academy. Most of our time was also spent at Columbus State University in Jordan Hall. We visited the Safe Office to register and sometimes we used the small study room inside the Safe Office. The one place that we have the most memories is in room 131. Remember the lectures, lessons, and skits we performed together throughout our experience. | Double Churches Elementary | Midland Academy | North Columbus | Eagle Ridge | Brewer Elementary | Downtown Magnet Academy
13: Project Learning Tree | Project Wet | Project Wild | Oxbow Meadows Environmental Learning Center In Block two we attended the Project Wet class. We learned about ways to conserve water. We attended Project Learning Tree and Project Wild during Block three. We made paper from recycled paper scraps and became a living tree. We also learned about new animals and even became wild animals ourselves. After all the hours we spent at Oxbow Meadows we learned new hands on activities with our students and became more aware of our environment.

19: As we become Great Teachers let us never forget our time at Columbus State University. Remember all the good and bad lessons. Remember how hard we worked. Always, remember your passion and inspiration for becoming a teacher. Make every moment in the classroom a learning moment. We are all block friends, but we are also TEACHER FRIENDS now. -Amanda Foley | Dear Block Friends, On our very first day in Block classes at Columbus State University, a very wise Professor quoted Piaget ... Okay, so maybe I shouldn't try to be like Elle Woods from "Legally Blonde". I truly can not believe that our experience of being Block students has almost come to an end. we have all shared stress, laughter, tears, jokes, lesson plans, and even lunches. Looking back at who we were in Block one and who we are now as up coming student teachers is amazing. We have all grown close and have become great teachers in the making. Now I would like to share a few quotes from some wise people: Your schooling may be over, but remember that your education still continues. Author Unknown Don't every be afraid to admit that you are still learning from your students. Even if it is your thirteenth year inside a classroom. When you leave here, don't forget why you came. Adlai Stevenson We came here to become the amazing teachers this world needs us to be. End of Story. The truth is, I was afraid the day I walked into Stanford. And I was afraid the day I walked out. Carly Fiorina When we do graduate we will all be in the same boat. Nervous, looking for a job or even our next move. The bond we have created as a class will help us get past all of our fears. Don't ever forget about your Block Friends. In closing, I am so very proud of where we have been, where we are going, and what we have accomplished over the past two years together. I wish you all the best. Congrats Early Childhood Education Majors, Class of Fall 2012 .... WE DID IT! (I had to) With all my love, Abbie E. Phillips | A Few Words From Those That Brought All This Together | Dear Block Friends, have enjoyed my time spent with you all and it's been a pleasure getting to know all of my block friends and learning something special, unique, and some hidden talents about each of you. The creation of this yearbook has truly been a great experience for me and will be memorable for all of us. There are no other Early Childhood Education majors creating a yearbook! We are the first to create a lasting bond and this yearbook will hold a snippet of some of our greatest memories! We have shared fun times, stressful weeks, and to say the least ... the good, the bad, and the ugly! LOL. I hope that we are able to keep in contact just to see how life is going and reminisce on the undergraduate days. I hope you find this yearbook meaningful and worthwhile. I love you guys and stay blessed! Rebecca Jasmine Parker
