Kathy Matthews, Professor in the Teacher Education and Higher Education department in UNCG’s School of Education, gives us a daily account of her experiences at the 2013 Rockfish Herpetological Research Experience.

Sunday

It’s the first day of the 2013 Rockfish Herpetological Research Experience (HRE) and I’m excited. What will the students be like? Who are our new teacher participants and will they work well with our groups? What does the weather have in store for us this summer? Will we find ‘new’ species? What will Mr. Aceng, our Indonesian partner think of this classic North Carolina blackwater swamp? Will we catch amphiumas and spotted turtles again this year?

Student Spotlight Aerin W. Benavides and Lacey Huffling

August 22nd, 2013

Aerin W. Benavides and Lacey Huffling, graduate students in the Teacher Education and Higher Education program in the UNCG School of Education, provide their daily account of life out in the field during the 2013 Rockfish Herpetological Research Experience as part of the HERPs Project.

Sunday

Aerin: I love Rockfish!  At this HRE we too get to ‘go to camp’ and stay in the hotel rooms at the lodge on the property. For some reason, this helps me feel that ‘team spirit’ as an integral part of the program, 24 hours a day.   As part of Dr. Carlone’s human research team this year, staying connected to it all helps me as a researcher to have a deeper understanding of all the forces at play. I become a better observer, and my experience as a human researcher at last year’s HRE’s helps me feel confident I can get the job done this year, and improve on it.  My best part of the first day is getting to pick up participants on the way that would not have been able to go to Camp Rockfish otherwise because their families just can’t afford or can’t arrange for transportation from Greensboro to Rockfish (near Fayetteville.)  I was a little sad that David’s (not his real name) mom decided to drive him at the last minute because on the car ride I get to know the kids better. I was picking up Hannah (not her real name), and Sandy’s (not her real name) parents drove her to my house from Winston-Salem.  Sandy was a talker.  Within a few minutes both Hannah and I knew all the places Sandy had lived and had intimate knowledge of her vast array of friends and step-siblings. I even heard all about that time she got suspended from school, and what that terrible teacher was like, and how much she liked art and the art teacher.   Hannah was kind of quiet, but she did tell me she was the oldest, often responsible for her younger siblings’ care, so this week of the HRE (Herpetological Research Experience) sleeping in a cabin with other high school girls was a time for her to be a kid and have fun.  I was glad for her.  I love the feeling I am helping provide this amazing opportunity free of cost to interested low income kids.

Faculty Spotlight Erik Hines

July 15th, 2013

Erik Hines

Erik Hines, Assistant Professor in the Counseling and Educational Development department in the UNCG School of Education, discusses some of the frequent stressors faced by college students, as well as his research on the academic success of African American males in grades K-16.

 

1). What led you to pursue a career in counseling?

I knew when I was 19; I wanted to become a school counselor.  At that time, I loved working with K-12 students and helping young adults reach their potential and figure out how to deal with life issues.  As a result, I knew the field of school counseling was profession for me so I mapped out my educational plan to achieve this goal.  During my master’s program, I developed a passion for solving problems around the gaps in academic achievement for African Americans and how parents can help close them.  Consequently, I pursued a degree in counselor education to learn how to solve this problem through research.
