When she thinks of her mother, “I see her in the summertime. We spent a lot of time outside. We had 70 acres, an orchard and gardens. She had lovely blonde hair that she was very fond of, and she would wear it down in the sun. I see her
I had the pleasure of interviewing Ms. Irene Rademeyer, LPT of 1945 Barcelona Drive. Dunedin, Fl. 34698. In talking with Ms. Rademeyer, I learned that she obtained her Physical Therapist license 43 years ago in 1972 (I. Rademeyer, personal communication, June 22, 2015). Ms. Rademeyer developed an interest in this profession from the influence of her mother who was a nurse. Although she did not want to follow directly in her mother’s footsteps, she had a desire to help others in a medical capacity and the independence physical therapists have in managing the care of their patients appealed to her (Rademeyer, 2015). Ms. Rademeyer expressed that she had a desire to be able to change the lives of people by helping them to regain functionality and
The poem First thanksgiving by Sharon Olds is a fascinating and personal poem about a nostalgic mother eagerly anticipating the next time her daughter will come home from college. The author’s natural ability to connect with the reader and make the reader feel for the nostalgic mother is impressive to say the least. This is possible through the uses of literary devices such as Imagery and Seasonal Symbolism. These literary devices are implemented into the story in order to grasp the reader’s attention and let the reader on to the utmost personal moments of the author’s mind.

Mothers around the world have a lot of work on their hands; the task of raising a child is never easy and requires plenty of hardwork as their child is growing up. Authors often describe mothers as a devoted parent and someone who would sacrifice anything for their child, because it’s a stereotype that applies to real life. Readers can relate to the text and understand it, making them want to enjoy the author’s book more. In “Lucinda Matlock” , a poem, and “Everyday Use”, a short story, authors Edgar Lee Masters and Alice Walker create two characters named Lucinda Matlock and Mama. Lucinda Matlock and Mama are two characters from different stories that have similar traits, in that they are dedicated and accepting women. Mama and Lucinda work hard in their lifetimes to provide for themselves in their children, and are dedicated to doing that, and they both accept the way life works and the unfairness that it might throw at a person.
My name Mckayla Guerra and today I am going to tell you about myself. I’m really shy until i get to know you and then I am more opened. I love to read I have read over 6 books this year. I hate when people call me a book nerd because I not. During my childhood i lived out in the country and I was an outdoor kind of person, I never liked to be in the house. Until I moved in 7th grade more into town and now i hate being outside because there’s nothing to do. Sports is what i do like softball and track. I also love little kids and enjoy working with them and helping them out.
The sunset awaits outside the window and winter dawns upon me as I sit in my kitchen on a high stool, setting up my laptop. A pot of flowers sits outside the patio door, bowing their heads due to the cold.I am thankful I am not outside, for the kitchen is peaceful, illuminated with soft light and warm. A pan sits on the stove, and the coffee pot huffs steam. Once I get everything set up, my mom comes to join me on the high barstools. Genuinely, I see my mom as old some days but her best features: wisdom, kindness, and love, show through her wrinkles.Physically, I see my mom as the shorter type, not fat but not skinny but healthy, and tan with brown hair that has blonde highlights in it. Today, I’m interviewing my mom, Paula Krock, because she
Going to Fay, an international independent boarding school, has been an extremely positive experience and an immense adjustment from my previous school and life. The transition from being a day student to becoming a boarder has been an educational and beneficial change. Not only the transformation of being away from my family, but Fay’s academics are both rigorous and demanding. Over the course of my time at Fay, I have learned about aspects of myself that I did not know of before. Fay also emphasizes a focus on community service, and has helped me to learn to give back to my community. Fay has made a profound impact on my life and in the way I think about my future.
My mom had been going to school in Virginia and staying at my Aunt Ana’s house. She had been away for two weeks and wanted to come home for the weekend. My mom had suggested that I go back with her and visit
Pam Johnson, the supervisor in this practitioner’s reflection, uses the collaborative approach with Ms. Rogers who is an outstanding second-grade teacher. Using this approach allows both teacher and supervisor to share equal responsibility in resolving issues. That means they also mutually contribute to expressing their ideas and concerns to reach a middle ground. Ms. Johnson and Ms. Rogers began with implementing the first step of the clinical supervision process, which is the preconference. The teacher predetermines one of her possible teaching flaws before the meeting begins. This is remarkable since it shows that the teacher was not only aware of some classroom shortcomings, but she set the stage and focus of the meeting. Identifying a
This piece of work allowed me to reflect on a number of internal and external issues. As Mrs. Gallop’s life revolved around cultural identity and ethnicity, the interview helped me analyze my own perceptions on the matter. The obstacles in Mrs. Gallop’s life were significant. However, her resilience and ability to recover are truly motivating. Nowadays, so many people give up on their dream, ideas, beliefs, and loved ones because of the circumstances or inner inabilities to either understand or forgive. Therefore, I felt privileged to have an opportunity to conduct this interview.
Everyday Use was written through Mama’s perspective, thus giving the reader the insight from someone who has lived through many hardships and who knows the value of hard work. She has overcome many difficult situations such as being a single parent, living on a limited income, losing her home to fire, caring for an injured and disfigured family member, and having to do many jobs reserved for a man, herself. Although
I actually didn't know there is a poetry center in the Humanities building before the Author Reading. This was my first time attend this type event and I was impressed by the entire setup, including the light refreshments. Four different authors presented their pieces on that night and each of them revealed his or her personal insights in various ways. Two of the writers I remembered the most were Sarah Azzara and Mira Dougherty-Johnson. The way of their reading portrayed a very picture to all the listeners as well as helped us see their individual connections to the story. During Ms. Sarah’s reading, her imagination gave the readers the “experiences” of how baby live in mother’s womb to the time of the birth. Even though it was a fiction piece, her choices of words made the entire writing so vivid to me.
This week at Trevecca Health and Rehab, I set with Lekia and watched her use the ECS system some more. I learned that the system is set up to scan x-ray results but not lab results. Also, last week I stated that while the majority of their information was electronic, something’s were still on paper. Each patient still has a physical chart, in the charts is discharge summaries, physician order scope, post forms, etc. This is done because patients see physicians outside of the facility and they do not have access to the ECS system.
