Both my personal and professional goals animate me and motivate me to pursue and finish my degree. The personal and professional are fundamentally interconnected. Personally I aim to live a life filled with a sense of meaning, and growth. These terms are purposefully broad in nature so that I have space to specify how they manifest themselves in a variety of ways. These broad personal aims become more tangible, and are matched, through more exact professional goals. Currently, I am working with a start-up charter school project serving the needs of high-school dropouts. This aligns with my sense of meaning because service to others, particularly through education, is valuable to me. Within the next five years I would like to found my own social entrepreneurship project. I do not see a world in which accomplishing this, and my broader aims, is

Professional Growth and Future Goal My teaching career began twenty years ago with the enthusiasm and the love of teaching I still have today. From the day I graduated from Texas Tech University with a teaching degree, certified to teach first through eighth graders, I knew I would inspire many students. I have been very blessed in my years of teaching. I have learned to work in stressful situations where high expectations of state mandate scores were expected. I have worked with teachers who worked independently and closed the door to collaboration. However, I have also worked for many supportive schools and districts over the years who hired teachers who were effective in collaboration, listened to colleagues and built positive relationships within the professional learning community. I found during those years while working in the positive environment I learned to grow from a good teacher to a great teacher. However, I could bring more to my professional career and I was committed to improving my profession through the teacher leadership program.

In my future endeavors, I would like to pursue a master’s degree in nursing as an education specialist. This specialty of nursing is something that has always intrigued me and after working within the hospital setting I know this is where I aspire to be. I believe helping current and future nurses expand upon their knowledge would be very fulfilling for me.
My primary professional and personal goal is to remain organized and not stressed even under pressure or during unforeseen setbacks I plan to start by staying organized and calm by using the SERVE method discussed in the TED video by Charles Marshall. I will implement
Briefly describe your short-term and long-term goals related to your career. My short-term career goals are to complete nursing school, pass the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse (NCLEX), and become a registered nurse. I start at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Nursing this fall; I am expected to graduate in the spring of 2018. I am interested in becoming a pediatric nurse at first. My long-term career goals would be to specialize in either pediatrics or neonatal nursing.
If students do not feel safe in my classroom, whether it is emotionally, physically, or socially, their defense systems will go up and learning will greatly decrease, if not shut down all together. It is important to me that all students, as well as their parent, other teachers, administrators, and people in the community, see me as someone they can approach, who displays warmth and compassion, passionate about teaching their child, and nondiscriminatory. My classroom is also a community where each child can blossom and grow. I allow my students to become responsible members of the classroom community by using strategies such as morning meetings, class jobs, problem-solving skills and positive discipline. In showing children how to become responsible for themselves as well as their own learning, I am giving them the tools to become successful in life, to believe in themselves, and to love
Personal, Academic and Professional Goals/Personal Qualities I am intrested in gaining my Masters (MS) in Psychology to extend my knowledge within this field and make an impact in society. Graduate school will llow me to understand the human mind and how they all function individually. I aim to teach Psychology and become a Academic advisor at a collegiate level. While choosing a path during my undergraduate studies, I knew that anything I decided to do would make a impact in society and that has become my passion. While taking a few Psychology classes during my undergraduate studies, I was very intrigued with my class Social Psychology as it seemed to involve both Sociology being my major and Psychology. I m intrested in helping the community
* What has led you to pursue this undergraduate degree? I’ve always had a passion for children. When I was little I use to always want to work in a day care. When I got my first childcare job, I realized I loved kids and wanted to do more that just work at a daycare. I felt that I would learn a lot from this degree, so that it would benefit me in my new found loved career. Having this undergraduate degree will help me strive in the direction that I would like to go in life.
Professional Goal When you are younger many times you will have someone ask you, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” And ever since I was a little girl I would answer, “Whatever I do I want it to help the world.” As I got older, it
Recently in a moment of personal reflection, I thought to myself, I have a strong passion and desire to live a life dedicated to helping other people. Conversely, I always wanted to play a larger role in helping people. I took pride in learning new experiences throughout my employment history. One of my short term professional goals is to become a leader with an executive position at a department in one of the top New York State Hospitals. Through my years as a front line staff member, I understood how it feels to have low employee morale. I understood what it was like to feel that the administration does not understand the everyday stress that their staff face. My experience would only advance my leadership skills. I am open to listen to
Professional Growth and Future Goals I am a born leader. Even when I am not looking for leadership opportunities they always seem to fall into my lap. My life has been one that is based on service to others, so I regularly volunteer for committees and extend myself to help others. It is important to me to be the best teacher I can, I regularly attend professional development sessions and implement my new learning in the classroom. However, upon starting the Teacher Leadership Master’s program at Lamar University, I was just beginning my career as a teacher leader. I had not had many opportunities to show leadership outside of my grade-level team. During team planning meetings, I normally directed the discussions. My coworkers looked to me for guidance and interpretation of the curriculum. I regularly made suggestions about teaching strategies. Additionally, I was a member of various campus committees including the Campus Performance Objective Committee (CPOC) where worked together with campus administrators and community partners to develop the Campus Improvement Plan. However, I did not view these tasks as leadership opportunities.
Choosing a career in medicine is my first career choice, and in many ways it is the only career choice I want. From professional athletes that we see on television, to the educators that have taught me and many others through the years, they all have committed themselves to extensive study. They have practiced countless of hours to master their individual skill set for their profession. I see myself following in the same footsteps, but as a pediatrician. I want to also master the skills that it takes to be a great doctor. It may not be simple and the outcome may not be near, but with extensive studying and practice I want to achieve and master the set of skills of pediatric diagnosis and eventually improve the medical process. This is my
