The Narcotics Anonymous meeting which I attended was named 7 Days of NA which was located on 1212 North Wolfe Street at an organization called Dee’s Place. Just as the Alcoholic Anonymous meeting previously attended, the location appeared to be in a covert and quiet place to hold a support group. We entered through the rear entrance, which seemed to be staged that way to secure participants identity. As before at the last support group I attended, I searched around the room to see again, a 12 steps guide posted on the wall, a relatively thick NA ‘Basic Text’ textbook on the desk of the facilitator and this
In Learning Outside the Lines, Jonathan Mooney expresses what it was like growing up with Dyslexia throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s. This proved difficult to him because during this time many public schools lacked the resources to help children like Jonathan, with their disabilities. Mooney writes in his book detailing constant narratives scattered throughout his schooling in which teachers and administrators would put him down and tell him that he was of below average intelligence. Mooney would express that at a young age in second grade, he would hate going to school because his teacher, Mrs. C, would constantly shame him for not being able to read and spell like the rest of the children. They placed him in a lower reading circle with other struggling students while he was teased by the other kids with higher reading levels. He was treated differently because he was different, but the school did not have the awareness to understand that he

I always knew Jonathan was a smart child; however, it was difficult to get him interested to participate in the activities. In the beginning, he did not like where our group would sit. Jonathan would wonder off and look at other groups in the classroom. When it was reading time, he would lay in the rug and begin playing around. Jonathan would hide behind my back or hide behind the book. During name writing time, Jonathan would doodle on his name card. I kept trying different methods to figure out how to cooperate with Jonathan. I asked my supervisor for advice as well. Finally, I realized that Jonathan enjoyed when a task was assigned to him. For example, I would have him help me turn the pages of the book. I realized to get Jonathan involved, I had to demonstrate to him that I appreciated his attention, and that his contribution is valuable to the group. I would complement Jonathan for his efforts on saying the vocabulary word. When Jonathan wrote the first letter of his first name facing the correct direction, I told him how proud I was of him. As result, Jonathan participated more during reading time; he would be interested on what will happen next in the story, and he would remember a few vocabulary words. Finally, the greatest success was when he wrote his first name and last name without losing
REPORTER: The reporter/ Counselor (Anna) called with concerns for the victim, Harmony. According to the reporter, on today (09/01/2015) Harmony was itching, and she was scratching (front and back) her bottom/butt and would not stop.

Accelerated Chemistry I is a demanding course that involves critical thinking and problem solving. Throughout the course you will be asked to analyze data, draw conclusions, process new information, and build your own understanding of chemistry concepts. Only after you have investigated new ideas will you discuss them formally. The model we will be using in class is - engage, explore, explain, evaluate. You will be asked to analyze common occurrences such as melting ice cubes and burning candles in order to understand the chemical processes that allow them to occur. You will analyze the relationship between macroscopic properties and microscopic structures, which in turn will help you to gain a better understanding of the world around you,

Background checks are a useful tool for employers to determine the fit of a candidate to the organization. They pull up any issues or discrepancies that may not have been provided by the candidate during the interview. It is very important that during the interview, the candidate is advised that there will be a background and reference check conducted so that they cannot say they did not know. After the background check has come back, the interviewer needs to decide whether or not to hire the candidate.
This is very evident in the kindergarten classes. During special classes, such as music or P.E., students do not have the tutors or helpers that they have in the classroom. This change in independence makes the student act out because he or she may not know how to act around their other friends in an appropriate way. For instance, most of the kindergarteners tend to act crazy during their library classes. This may cause the sequestered students to act out in order to receive more attention from either the teachers or other students. During their library classes, one kindergartner, Jacob, is usually accompanied by an adult the entire day except during special classes. So during this time when all of his friends are acting wild, he takes it a step further and starts screaming and sprinting through the library. It seems as though the constant supervision hinders the younger students’ ability to make wise decisions when around other
The Feiner Points of Leadership is one of the interesting and application oriented books I have read. I would recommend the book to my friends and colleagues who aspire to be a good leader. This book should be read by all the leaders and managers to be successful. It exemplifies some of the important skills manager or leader should practice at the same time it explains the mistakes one should avoid being a successful and effective leader. Michael Feiner’s experience in PepsiCo, given examples and instances in his tenure makes it easier to understand the facts in detail. These examples also helps retain all the points and laws explained in the book.
Upon shadowing a fourth grade teacher at Deer Ridge Elementary School, I decided to talk with her about the students in her classroom. Mrs. Riley first set the scene of the school for me by stating that it was in the southwest suburban area of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and this particular school was not hurting for money. She then began to explain the different children in her classroom. There were twenty-eight students from a variety of different backgrounds. There were also two students with ADHD. My first thought was, "What exactly is ADHD?" and, "Would these two children stick out from the rest of the students in the classroom?".
