It has been a mostly good experience but not everything has gone how I wanted to go. Writing essays has never been my favorite thing, but through this class I have learned that I’m better at writing that I thought. However, there are still things I can improve on. The concept I struggle with most is word choice. This is a result of English not being my first language so my vocabulary is not as expended as people that were born in the United States. Also, sometimes I have a hard time writing my exact thoughts down.

Whilst on clinical placement, a male resident with dementia and I were sitting in his room within the nursing home for which he resided for the past two years. The resident was becoming anxious about his family, stating that they lived far away and he missed them. He showed me a card from one of his daughters she had sent for his birthday. As I was reading what she had written I became overwhelmed with empathetic emotion and wanted to cry due to her emotive words.
Caring and support the first protective factor in the resiliency wheel stated the most important way to provide that is how you talk to yourself. I always tell the students I work with how powerful positive self-talk can be and that having positive thoughts can actually change your frame of mind and attitude. So one would think that I would follow through with positive self-talk, yet I tend to be a very hard on myself, inner critic. I do though when starting to feel anxious in certain situations that I will use self-talk, which helps me to feel calm.

While registering for a college-level course, last year, I questioned how difficult the class would be. I had taken a course the previous semester that had covered the basics in business and economy, yet this would be the first course in English—a topic that I had been told, on many occasions, that I excelled in. Because of this, I came into this year’s English class confident and sure that I would receive top marks easily. Unfortunately, it was not so. I struggled through several of the assignments given to me, yet I learned several new techniques and gained insight in what a college-level essay truly consists of. Because of this class, I learned of the importance of transitions between points, the importance of reducing wordiness in sentences, and the importance of explaining information and quotations fully.
I have had different writing experiences throughout high school so I was able to write my essays fairly well. I am better at grammar than I am at putting a fully developed paragraph together. During this semester, I learned about modifiers and how to correctly use commas; I thought I knew what those were pretty well, and as it turns out, I didn’t really. I believed that during this semester I developed a lot of skills such as communication. I struggled with the first group paper because I felt like my group members didn’t care enough to write their paragraphs. I realized that people write at different stages because they have busy lives, and after we figured out the situation, the second paper went a lot more smoothly. Another thing I have improved upon is being a thinker because I have to think of who the audience is, and how to phrase sentences correctly and professionally.
Having bestowed with the responsibility of Accountancy managerial in Southwest airlines, I was tasked with overlooking after all accounting operations in the organization. As an astute manager, I had to observe the contributions of the non–managerial employees as an important contribution that can facilitate the success of the organization. Thus, I took the necessary steps and measures to recognize and consider the efforts of all employees in the organization. This is one of the philosophies that drove me as an accountancy manager in the Southwest Airlines. My philosophy of management was partly derived from the Bolman and Deal philosophy where Harris had quoted a question on how much a
Reflection is they key to growing and developing any new skill. With teaching being such a complex skill that involves many layers of practice and theory, it requires equally in depth reflection in a variety of formats. Watching my teaching video in front of the class helped me get over my self-consciousness and provided me with a number of action points moving forward. I feel motivated from the character and lesson based glows, challenged by the management based glows, and directed by the detail oriented “next steps” that I received through this feedback session.
