Volunteering and participating in service projects are two of the most rewarding activities in my opinion. Some people may find it was a hassle or only do it because they have to meet the minimum requirement for school or work. Helping others, for me, has always been somewhat second nature to me. Over many years of volunteering I believe I have developed qualities that will stick with me for life and benefit me in my career. As early as freshman year, in high school, I found myself looking for ways to give back. I started by looking for opportunities within school, where I came across the A+ tutoring program, and so my journey of giving back began. While tutoring, my patience for others really evolved, partly by choice and partly because
My two main volunteer experiences consist of: Outdoor School, and volunteering for Homework Club at Gordon Russell Middle School. I have only been able to go to Outdoor School twice, but both times were filled with accomplishments. I worked on plants field study, so learning all the information, which seemed overwhelming at first, and then being
I volunteered at the Gonzales City volleyball clinic where I assisted the head coach by helping the young volleyball players learn how to set, serve, hit, and bump. I did this three times a week for three hours each day. The clinic consisted of children from ages 7-14 and each age group went in at different times. Also, I did community service at my local St. Theodore Church by helping in the jumping house at the church carnival. For the past four seasons I helped fundraise at the high school football games by selling food at the stadium snack bar. In every home football game I would stay for more than half of the game in the snack
Since the summer of eighth grade I have volunteered at Essentia Health Hospital making tie blankets for inpatients. These patients are able to take the blankets home with them when they are well enough to leave the hospital. Moreover, I volunteer at my local church for a once-a-month food share. I help unload the food from the truck, sort out the rotten produce, and distribute the food among the shareholders. Additionally, I clean up highways and trails as a part of Green Club ,and I partake in numerous other volunteer opportunities within my school
Every summer between 7th grade and my freshman year of college, I would volunteer at a local summer program. This consisted of helping the teachers come up with lesson plans, activities, and games to play. During my last two years, I gained more responsibilities as the “Head Leader in Training” and managed the other volunteers, while designating tasks and responsibilities. I continued working with and coming up with activities during undergrad through the organization Project Literacy. After going over the lessons with the students, we would have a group activity or play a variety of sports with them. Working with children
I am a recent graduate from the University of Oregon with majors in psychology and sociology with a minor in business. While sitting in my child development class learning how a child’s brain is shaped and molded throughout its life, I had an epiphany. The education and support a child receives from school has a dramatic impact on their future. That moment ignited a passion to improve the support and education all children receive. I am applying for the Educational Assistant IB position to start my journey to make my passion into a reality. This position will allow me to make an immediate positive impact on the lives of students today while gaining experience and knowledge to impact the students of the future.

Student Affairs is a profession where genuine care, compassion, and communication are required in shaping the lives of the students. After observing multiple university professionals, I am sure that Student Affairs is a career suited for my personality and abilities. I am excited by the diverse nature of work and the positive effects professional staff can have in helping undergraduates achieve their goals.
Beginning on September 16th, I will become a Teacher’s Assistant. This position is temporary and for the fall only. Therefore, I am seeking a post-graduate full time position that will begin after May of 2017.
One of the greatest volunteering opportunities I have ever been a part of is teaching children about the environment. Speaking to a classroom full of children about the importance of our environment is an experience I will always remember. Being around young minds and helping these children grow into more caring humans is something I will always cherish.
A little bit about myself currently I am an assistant teacher at a Kindercare Learning Center, where I have been for nearly two years. I assistant in preparing activities for the children and with the student’s curriculum. Before that I worked in the food industry filling orders, working the cash register and occasionally preparing the food. I quickly was promoted to management and assisted with running the restaurant when the general and assistant general manager were not present. While I enjoy my current job, I want to expand my work skills. I am a hard worker and goal-oriented. In my past and current job, I have an attention to detail and find creative ways to solve problems.
Academic advising is counseling provided by a university representative, usually a faculty member, to assist you achieve the goals of your education.
I have volunteered at the Alzheimer’s Walk, where I got to experience the emption of families walking for a cure for their loved ones. I volunteered at the Fiestas De Las Americanos parade, and I got to walk in the parade while celebrating my Latino heritage. I also volunteered at Pumpkinville, where I helped children paint their pumpkins for Halloween. Volunteering is important to me because it allows for me to get to know people and their stories. It also allows for me to show others that they are valued, and I think this is often forgotten in our fast-paced
The classroom aide, who has been with this class since pre-k, claims that in the younger grades, this student did not have these restrictions of not being able to go outside and participate in swim class, and when he was able to swim and go outside he always enjoyed himself. Now and in the past few years, the student has had to stay inside for recess, often times by himself, and he is not allowed to participate in swim, therefore forced to sit and watch on the side. We have been taking turns staying inside with him at recess while he plays academic games on the computer, but we are really supposed to be outside at recess with the other 25 students to monitor them and have a break as well.
During the summer I enjoy volunteering at the local recreation center in various sports camps. While at camp I provide the children with a positive role model to follow. In addition, I assist the camp staff in providing a safe and fun environment that promotes growth and learning. During the school year I peer tutor for classes with students struggling in math. A majority of those students have difficulties understanding grade level math concepts. By interacting with students one on one I can help identify and fill the gaps in their learning.
