Early on, BSC got us into the classroom to observe awesome teachers. Since I received such a diverse clinical experience at BSC, it really helped me narrow down the age group I wanted to work with in the future. I was unsure about majoring in education heading into BSC but the faculty and the experiences encouraged my decision and helped me fall in love with the career path. – Sydney Andersen, Teacher at Badlands Elementary School in Watford City
