In team member, I have a chance to work with other people who came from different countries and nationality such as American, Jamaica, Singapore, China and Philippines. I enjoy working and talking together with a team so we exchanges ideas about daily life and tourist attraction in the U.S.A. One day, the sky is clear and the weather is very hot that made the theme park had a lot of people who went with families and friends. While I controlled the playing machine and my friends checked a safety belt of people in the train. Unfortunately, I saw the woman who was shaking and seemed to faint. I thought she had epilepsy since her shaking on the train. Furthermore, a hot weather and long queue would be a key factors to make her increase. I decided
Throughout the course of our lives, we must collaborate with people who may have completely different upbringings and have vastly different belief systems than what we may hold ourselves. One scenario in my life in which I had to collaborate with someone different than me was when I had to work with an overly aggressive football player who was a year younger. He started on the freshmen team but soon became the starting quarterback of the varsity team when he was a sophomore. I was on the JV team and was the backup quarterback both my junior and sophomore year. We came from different social groups, and I worried that we would not get along on or off of the field.
As a paraprofessional one of the biggest problems that is face is the collaboration between the team of the student you work with. I work on a team of twenty-one people who I must communicate with most of them daily or weekly basis. The main issue I face is working with the Special Education teacher and regular classroom teacher in curriculum. The reason being is that I don’t get things modified for my student occurring to the IEP and preview the materials ahead of time. Just being given the material to work with the day of is hard because if I must modify I don’t get the planning time to do so. Then I run into the student having behaviors cause the material is too hard. Looking at the problem-solving worksheet from De Boer I really like the
Communication is key to the success and failure of most everything that we do, and that
My current job is an ABA therapist for the school district. Last week, one of the children on my case load was having a lot of behavior issues in the classroom. In order to help shape his behaviors, a collaboration took place. The classroom teacher, the lead therapist, the autism specialist, another line therapist and myself brainstormed possible strategies to put in place. We all had to observe the behaviors and try to determine the antecedent. From there, we sat down as a team to decide what behaviors we wanted to target first and what strategies we would use. We have all begun to put the strategies into place and we are seeing significant improvement in some of the behaviors. We have all taken turns in dealing
Today I wrote this letter to introduce myself to you for the purpose of improving our collaboration during this semester. As a first son and a fifth child in the family, I’ve received many loves from my parents and my four older sisters. My family migrated from Vietnam to the United States five years ago and carried our new hopes and dreams to this place. I was having a tough time in maintaining my native language and learning English at the same time. I don’t have any interest in reading books because I‘ve never really enjoy any book that I’ve read in the past, or just because I haven’t read as much book as i thought I did. My goal for this year is to past every classes with an A. The reason is I don’t want to lose my financial aid, and
For this project I think Merry and I worked extremely well together, and were very collaborative. We were both a part of every step of the process, from booking equipment, to filming to editing. We tried to be good at communicating with one another as things came up, as well stay in touch about our progress. Overall, I think we worked very well as a team, and I look forward to working with Merry in the future.
My leadership Mythology and influence originates from military training, reading and mimicking others using some but not all prominent biography’s relevant to people’s traits or actions, as well as proven doctoral guide develop by the us government. I would suggest that leadership and also the understanding of this process via written words continues to be overlooked. Over time I have gravitated to resembling other past great leader’s self-concepts that they might have lead, which telling the existence story or areas of leadership behavior. To illustrate the existence-story approach, in this short paper I offer my own personal leadership
The first time I saw one of those navy blue National Honors Society shirts, I was enthralled. I was in middle school, attending a high school girls basketball game, and the National Honor Society was running a fundraiser during half-time. I did not know what the group was fundraising for, or what the shirts represented, but I did notice that all of the seniors who I looked up to were participating in this. The track runners whom I admired, the top of the class scholars, and the few seniors who would apologize if they accidentally banged into my huge backpack, were all a part of this prestigious group standing on the large Scarlet bird in the center of the gym. I did not know what it meant then, but I knew I wanted to be just like them.
School communities must have leaders that continually strive to learn, grow, and reflect on their experiences to make a significant impact. I plan to incorporate these same ideas when embarking on my new role as a supervisor. I have expanded and refined my experiences as a teacher since I embarked with cohort four on this leadership journey, and I feel equipped to be the effective leader that will truly make a difference in our schools. This year’s courses and high expectations from our faculty have provided me the opportunities to reflect on my strengths and weaknesses on a scale larger than that of the classroom. Our projects and meaningful discussions have helped shape my leadership philosophy.

There are a number of different leadership roles I have filled in the past and continue many of them still today. All of these have given me opportunities to increase my own professional knowledge and skills as well as the occasion to learn from others in my field.
The word collaboration means “to work with another person or group in order to achieve or do something” according to Merriam-Webster.com. My opinion of collaborating with the teacher across the hall from me were promising. Until I spoke one morning and then she looked at me (dead-in-my-face) and said nothing. I was shocked and thought to myself; well it’ll be a cold day – if I ever speak to her again! I recalled telling my professor and classmates what happened and during the conversation some of them provided me with strategies to use next time. I recalled laughing and then telling them that I wasn’t going to say anything to that teacher. It was Dr. Oslund, she convinced me that this would be a great change project. So, I bought into the
Everyone was upset with the amount of work involved in the creation of the unit plans and the extra demands that the district placed on us. I was the lead teacher for world history and it was my responsibility to ensure that the units were completed. At first instead of focusing on creating the unit plans, my group of teachers kept complaining, getting up to make copies and grading. As much as I tried to keep them focused and on task, they seemed very agitated and were not productive. I really did not know what to do and turned to my respective vice principal for advice. He said that administrators often encounter this problem and that our job is to create positivity out of negativity. He told me to try to listen to their concerns, acknowledge their concerns, and assist them in taking control of what they have control over. He then gave me examples of how to do this and demonstrated strategies that I could use. He told me that as an administrator I would have to spread positivity.
