It is still so surreal to reflect back on my first semester as an incoming college student in the ENC1101 course, analyzing at my progression as a reader and writer in literacy. Since the first day of class I set in stone my goals for this class: receive a 4.0
While growing up my mother worked at a child development center educating children ages 3-5. I enjoyed watching her interacting with the children. So I decided to try to teach a few of the students like she did and I did very well. This is when I knew I wanted to be a teacher. I worked at Jefferson Place Learning Center for almost 5 years. There I decided there to obtain my CDA to groom my skills as an educator but I was not able to complete this. In 2011, I decided it was time for a change and I decided to leave Jefferson place and moved to KinderCare Learning Center. I really enjoyed working for KinderCare but due to transportation I had quit and I started to work Wal Mart. My heart was heavy because I knew that working for was not something
Applying programs created by a BCBA to an autistic child in their home and taking data on their progress. The children I worked with were between 3 and 15 years in age. In addition to my primary responsibilities of data collection, I also worked with the child's family to help them better understand what their child needs and how to get it to them. Creating a strong bond with each autistic child. This is to build the trust that is needed to work with them in a strong consistent manner while still maintaining an empathetic understanding to their desire to be
For the last year and a half, I worked for the ASA (FM&C), whose mission is to prepare, present and support the Army budget to Congress, and to manage the approved and effective use of appropriated resources to complete the Army’s mission. ASA (FM&C) also provides propitious, correct, and trustworthy financial information to allow leaders and managers to include cost concerns into their decision-making. Additionally, ASA (FM&C) delivers transparent reporting to Congress regarding the use of appropriated resources, the accomplishment of approved Army-wide performance objectives, and oversee coordinated programs for the accession, training, and development of Army resource managers. ASA (FM&C) organized with one Director and four Deputies controls

IDS 101 Cornerstone Seminar has been a course that has made you think deeper in many areas. I have learned how as well as the importance of analyzing and evaluating books, and topics whether to take a position, use an analogy, discuss cause and correlation, summarize, paraphrase, quote, beginning an research paper, peer editing, developing an abstract, and using MLA or APA format just to name a few. This has been a process where I have used parts of brain that hasn’t been woken up in some time. To start off with week one and not fully knowing where to start I was pleased to reflect on myself relating it to Gladwell’s “10,000-Hour Rule” in Outliers. To see how I made connection to Gladwell’s philosophy about being successful and what it all
During the training I learned better ways to use the students past accomplishments to help the other students understand the topics. Overall I personally felt that the training was outstanding and it presented me with several new ideals as to how I can present my lectures.
I feel that I am a great candidate for BSI performing arts because of my skills as an actor, singer, and dancer. In third and fifth grade I was able to show off my acting skills by auditioning for the school play and earning a part. I have shown my singing skills in many ways including earning solos, singing the national anthem at titan games and a church baseball league for neighborhood kids, and also serving as a singer for the worship team at my church. I have demonstrated my dancing skills by both making show choir in seventh and eighth grade. I also as a seventh grader was able to earn one of the select few roles in the play put on by the eighth grade show choir. From these experience I learned many ways in which I can better my performances
I was correct you are the person! I promise it was a coincidence, but earlier today a colleague, Ayeisha Cox, suggested I reach out to you to gain insight on what it is like to be a lawyer in Public Policy and Government Relations. I started at the AAMC roughly 10 months ago, and as a Catholic Law graduate with Health Policy experience I am reaching out to know more about what the OGR does on a day to day basis. Do you have time this week for an informal chat over coffee or lunch to chat about the work you do? I look forward to learn more about you and the different areas of public policy the AAMC impacts.
I learned, that in order to get a good score on my AP essays, it will take a lot of effort, and I won't have a lot of time. I need to write in a way that the reader can understand and comprehend my ideas, and control of language, while successfully getting my point across in a clear-cut way. This will allow me to get a score based how effective the essay is (Nine being the most effective and zero being the least). In addition, my score should reflect the essay’s quality as a whole. Completing this activity helped me realize that the expectations are high when it comes to writing essay, and I will need to work hard to get the best score that I can.
My involvement with NSCS has helped me feel prepared for my future transition from Austin Community College to Texas State University in various ways. By showing me that making connections with others will not only benefit my future in education but also help encourage me to achieve my future career and life goals is what has encouraged me the most in making the transition to a 4-year university. These connections have not only helped me recognize my ability to be academically successful, but has also provided me with the opportunity to be engaged with a group of likeminded students. Due in large part to the encouragement of these students, I, in turn, have begun to feel better prepared to develop stronger leadership skills, make a difference on and off campus, help gain a greater sense of achievement, enjoy a variety of experiences, and work hard to impress graduate schools as well as potential employers.
L and Mrs. V have given me throughout the week. Throughout the week one I continually reminded myself why I was doing my placement and Certificate 4 in Education Support. Remembering to do things and complete set tasks genuinely to the best of my ability with care and warmth.
Without a doubt the lessons and exercises on time management were the most meaningful to me. They brought insight into why I seemed to be constantly working yet still never really got anything I wanted to accomplish throughout the day finished. I realized the majority of the activities I had
I am most suited for ASIC as I share the values of the organization. The core values of ASIC are the same values that have guided me and are ones that I have demonstrated throughout my life. The value of teamwork is closest to me as it has been a critical part of my life. I have demonstrated not only teamwork through working in the hospitality industry but also through teaching my younger peers how best to work in a team. Both accountability and professionalism are important to me as well, accountability through resilience and results is important to me as I am of a disadvantaged financial background and have persevered to be where I am today. Professionalism is of the utmost importance to me especially integrity. Hence I feel that I am a
