This semester, Jennifer Fowler ’05 has been interning at Border City Elementary School in Waterloo through the Geneva Collaborative Internship program offered by HWS Career Services Office. The women’s studies major and member of the Colleges’ education program has been assisting in developing second and third-grade curriculums, putting together units on family, holidays and famous people.
This morning (Nov. 3), Fowler brought a special guest to address the elementary students at the local school—HWS President Mark D. Gearan, who was the featured speaker of the month in a forum that brings prominent area guests to the school. This month the students have been discussing New York State and learning about the professional lives of presidents of various organizations and businesses in the region. Gearan told the students about his responsibilities as president.
Fowler is a member of the William Smith swimming and diving team as well as of the Core 20 peer facilitators, student-athletes group that works to promote issues of wellness and team cohesiveness on her team. After graduation, she hopes to work as an elementary teacher in New York City and pursue her master’s degree.
