Once the garden was fully grown, I began noticing how successful our garden was. Students and teachers picked fruits and vegetables from the garden that were taken home in order to create a healthy meal. The Special Education class utilized this garden in order to create fresh salsa. Because of this success, our project was then selected to present at the FMEC conference in Washington, D.C. Currently, I am working on a fitness project for students that will help their overall well-being through a variety of unique exercise lessons and healthy eating guidelines.
Introduction When I first saw the syllabus of this class, I was looking forward to doing the service learning project as I have only been to only one in the past. I believe that service learning is important as part of a quality college education because I believe that people learn best through experiences. Also, service learning is important as part of a quality college education because, during the service, there will be numerous opportunities for students to learn new things. For instance, I am a business major student but I know about the history of the Gold Park and the benefits of the plants there through the service learning project. Now, I also learn about the history of the Coast Salish Tribe and their culture.
From 8am to 4pm, we would lead 12 - 15 students through activities to learn about college, or just work on important skills such as writing, reading and research. I really enjoyed working the kids. Since they were in 7th and 8th grade, it was sometimes hard to remind them how important the work we were doing was, even if it was 9am on a Saturday morning. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed working with the program.

I also am an animal lover. Biology, different mathematics, english, and art will help prepare me for my taxidermy career. The art, sculpture, woodworking, and creative writing clubs are good school activities that will make me better prepared for my career choice.

To symbolize the entrance of the first graders into the Grades program, each name is called and s/he receives a rose from a student of the oldest class. Intended as a welcoming to and reuniting of all the members of the Grades, this in-school festival is open to all members of the community. Michaelmas - September Michaelmas, the harvest festival, takes place in late September. It is the time of year to gather the harvest and our strength for the year ahead. In our community-wide weekend celebration, we may plant seeds and bulbs for the future, challenge ourselves through deeds of courage and strength, and with the fruits of the harvest season, make apple sauce and cider.
Reseda Park, just down the street from CSUN, is a fairly large park with a lake at its center and with its grass and trees green year long. Reseda was once a sheep farm many years ago and later became a “prominent lettuce-growing region” (Community Profile). The park on Friday nights has different events like kids softball or basketball games and these programs are “to take care of our kids” (Community Profile). If you grew up in the San Fernando Valley you at some point have been to this lovely place. I personally grew up feeding the animals there.
During my junior year of high school, I changed my mind on what I wanted to go to school for. Being a veterinary technician is an exciting job, you are always on your feet doing something, whether it being giving routine shots or assisting during a surgery. I chose to do my PREP Project on veterinary technology so that I was able to get an inside look into what I wanted to pursue, to make sure that it was the right choice for me. In May of 2015, I called the Beckwith Veterinary Hospital in Modesto, California and asked them if any of their veterinary technicians would be able to be my mentor. They told me to call Lori Rivera.
Having the opportunity to attend Colorado State University, a school that has one of the best veterinary programs, is dream come true in its self, one that has paved a path for me to follow for my long-term goals. Enrolling in vet school is one of the hardest studies, but being a veterinarian has many benefits that offer many impacts to the professional field. My hope is that I will leave a legacy to the veterinary field by running a practice that is successful and passionate about the care of animals. To leave an impact, many innovations will be created throughout my career as a veterinarian, and contribute to the success of the profession
This is my second semester as a distance learner and I believe that I did an exceptional job at my work. My strengths in the distance learning format is my ability to set goals and be well-disciplined enough to reach those goals by the deadlines. I kept a tiny notebook calendar on hand and wrote down each week what I needed to complete in each class. I tried to work on something each day to reach those goals. With the ability of being organized and self-disciplined will assist me in everything I do in college and at
