On 08/20/2017 at 1002 hours FTO Wheeler #4361 and I responded to St. Luke’s Hospital emergency room entrance, on 3555 Cesar Chavez St., regarding a women in a hospital gown trying to break the caller’s vehicle window with a brick. Officer Wheeler and I were in full police uniform driving a marked patrol unit when we responded.
Being professional in everything I do is very important to me. First and foremost, it is essential to be professional in the counseling aspect (AR –professional). However, I have found in order to be a respected, professional counselor, organization is crucial. The school counselor’s job description is so varied; he or she cannot do an effective job without this skill. We must constantly be on top of things because we work closely with so many people: students, teachers, parents, administrators, school-based mental health counselors, school secretaries, cafeteria workers, janitors, professionals outside of the school district such as DHS, other counselors and community leaders (AR –knowledge and Delivery). Fortunately, I have always been somewhat organized. However, I have learned that If I want to stay one step ahead of the game, I must manage work demands and prioritize my time to the fullest.
Professional Reflection #2 It has been a very interesting month in the Federal Aviation Administration. The month of June was full of excitement, experiences, meeting more and more people from different departments. I also did some researching in the FAA website to see where all the regulations are. I came across a very important committee it’s called the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee made up of industry and government officials. My role is very diverse in the Federal Aviation Administration. I am learning about the major issues that are affecting the airlines. How the Federal Aviation Administration goes about writing a rule is not as simple as it may seem. A person cannot just say lets write these rule and make it official. There
Professional Development through attendance of a Guest-Speaker Event at a University In order to enhance my professional development, I attended a Guest-Speaker Event at the University of Louisville on July 24th, 2015 that aimed to promote networking among various business persons. Prior to attending the guest speaker-event, I researched about the
Dr. Paul Farmer once said, “That’s when I feel most alive, when I’m helping people.” And that could not be truer for myself. I am fascinated and committed to improving the health of medically underserved regions spanning from my home within Appalachia and far beyond to international borders. Today as I write this, I triaged over 100 patients alongside nurses and medical students in the Dominican Republic; further learning what it truly means to become adaptable and use inter-disciplinary strength. Each member of our team in the Dominican Republic brought with us unique backgrounds, all of which combined to positively impact the lives of our patients in need. As an experienced EMT and emergency room medical scribe, I offered my knowledge of
Personal Reflection This course enhances my understanding about bereavement’s theory and counselling skills working with bereaved people. Before I took this course, I thought bereavement only about death of a person. In fact, bereavement can also imply losses such as employment losses and leaving home. Also, changes can be a bereavement
I believe I can keep a cool head during difficult situations which allows me to think clearly and not worry. When my team sees this, they feel secure and are able to let go of the negative and keep moving forward. This leads to my team and I being proactive in starting new projects instead of worrying about something we couldn’t control.
Throughout the semester we have gone over a lot of topics ranging from our short and long-term goals to our desired major and career choices. I have always had a general idea of what I wanted to do, and the only thing that has ever interested me was working with
During my first year of high school, I was held to a higher standard, than my previous
This MPX years has been very valuable to me as a learner. This year, I have greatly expanded my knowledge and skills as a learner. My Success can be observed in my POL and past projects. I would also like to explain MPX was the right choice for me. I
Aristotle once said, "we cannot learn without pain," forming a causal relationship between frameworks of pathology and the framework of wholeness. Enduring pain, suffering, or oppression lays the foundation of strength, wisdom, and understanding in your life. To be more specific, my grandmother passed May 13, 2017. My grandmother and I were very close she was like a mother to me; my friend, a confidant, a spiritual leader, and mentor; she was my kindred spirit, my soul mate, if you will. When I heard that she had passed I cried for weeks, and being separated from my family made me felt isolated in my pain. For a week I was unable to shift my mentality, physical well being, and spirit out of mode of depression or mourning, it seems to encompass all of my thoughts, depress my spirit, and numb my body. Shifting my mentality of isolation, sadness, and depression into a mentality of rejoicing forced me to deal with my pain, and reflect on it by remembering my grandmother’s spirit of joy and love. My grandmother made it her mission to smile infectiously, hug people wantonly, and love people intentionally. Remembering that about my grandmother, made me step out of my grief and into a place of reflection, a place of love, and a place of hope. I hope that I can live the way she lived and allow her spirit of joy and love to live through me, and to affect others the way that she is affected me. In my morning her death, I remembered her life, I appreciated her presence, and appreciate
English Comp I have taught me a great deal. This subject has helped improve on some writing skills that I never payed attention too as I began my writing career in middle school. I have improved in a major way in several subjects that can impact a person’s writing in a dramatic way. Evidence from three of my EN113 papers this semester provides evidence that suggest that I have succeeded in improving on my organizational skills, identifying grammar issues, and elaborating and describing events in more detail. Reviewing my previous papers, I have realized that I am still working on improving my MLA format.
Hi Ms. Mills, My summer has been amazing! I came home from GHP two days ago, where I had some of the best weeks of my life. We talked about it so much beforehand, I thought you might want to hear how it went. GHP is a learning environment like no place else. I had the opportunity to meet so many welcoming people (my hallmates, classmates, RA, and teachers) who were so similar to me in character, but also brought a wealth of different experiences. I learned so much academically, but mostly about myself while in Rome.
After doing half of my intern at Living Water and taking two counseling classes at Trinity International University, I realize I do not have the gift for counseling. There are some skills that I do not have to make counseling a vocation. One of the skills is sympathy. I find myself praying for God’s judgement on people rather than their repentance. I have little tolerance for people conceited people. I try to keep conceited people as far away as possible, because I have a history clashing with them. If I was a counselor and I had a client that tried to sue me or do me any harm, any sympathy for the person would just go out the window in an instant.
Personal Reflection When thinking of being an effective teacher who understands his or her students, it is very important for the teachers to understand themselves first. It is important for a teacher to understand the way that he or she learns because it gives them more knowledge and understanding of given situations. If a teacher wants the entire classroom to do well, it is important to remember what Kubiszyn & Borich (2016) state, “In other words, just as there is no one size fits all tool, no single test is appropriate for all purposes and all persons (p. 2). This quote helps readers understand that there are many factors that should be accounted for when assessing students.
