Having the strength, knowledge and having a good financial help me in getting a bachelor's degree in nursing. I have done a good amount of activities while in high school. These activities were completed in SMILE Club, National Honors Society, Art for Children and biology class. I have been in SMILE Club for nine years and the three out of four years in high school I have
After completing my junior research paper last school year I began thinking about what I would want to focus on for my senior project. I had written my paper on becoming an elementary school teacher, so I knew for my project I wanted to do something that gave me the opportunity to give back to my community. With the desires of some day becoming an elementary teacher, I decided to base my project around early education. After being informed about The Discovery Corner in Phoenix Oregon by my former English teacher, I applied and soon met my mentor Lynn DeHaven. The Discovery Corner is a daycare/ preschool which serves for children starting at 10 months all the way to 6 years old.
Key Club is the oldest and largest non-profit organization that is student-led. This club is all about learning how to become a leader and being able to give back to the community. We do this by following our 4 core values: Caring, Leadership, Inclusiveness, and Character Building, The first Key Club was established at Sacramento High School on May 7, 1925, and it was a all-boys community service club. It wasn 't until 1976 when they first started letting female students join. Today, Key Club exists in about 5,000 high school campuses in 30 different countries, primarily in the United States and Canada.
My experience in the JAG program has further taught me responsibility and also trustworthiness. These services have also taught me patience and positivity, which are occasionally necessary because children can be challenging to work with if they are not having a good day. These services show how I have vital leadership skills, which could be necessary in the many services Carrboro High School’s National Honor Society provides to the community. Due to my experience in a wide range of service, I have become exceptionally adjustable in terms of who I can work with. I work well with children, as shown by my camp hours and my work with the refugee club.
In order for his grades to improve, the Tuohys hired a tutor for Michael Oher, Miss Sue Mitchell. She would tutor Oher five nights a week, four hours each day, or however long it took for Oher to understand the material. She would never lose her patience with Michael no matter how much he struggled. Most tutors aid students for a paycheck, however, she was more interested in seeing Oher prosper academically. Eventually, with her help, Oher made the honor roll his senior year.
I interviewed my mom about the “The Five People You Meet In Heaven” because I thought she would find interest in the book. My mom, Jodi is a mental health therapist for Child and Adolescent. I interviewed my mom Sunday, November 13th at 9:00 that morning. The interview took about 25 minutes because my mom took much thought before answering the questions. I made 13 questions that are related to the book to ask her.
I have been a Girl Scout since I was five years old, and scouting has taught me the importance of giving back to the community. It is second nature in my world to participate in community outings and to provide those in need with necessities to survive and thrive. My troop hosted numerous events: collecting cans for food drives, providing supplies for shelters, making blankets for children’s hospitals, and distributing toiletries to soldiers. Girl Scouts was the primary foundation and inspiration that led me to volunteering at my local Kaiser Permanente Medical Center. Witnessing patients smile when I provided warm towels and other comforts inherently felt rewarding, especially when I came to discharge them.
I am everyone’s biggest cheerleader naturally and I consider myself flexible in my decision making. Since I am such a cheerleader for everyone in my school, I see how being positive and an active participant in the leadership, helps to maintain an inclusive educational environment leading to success for all students in that environment. My job experiences have helped me learn to be a member of a collaborative team and while I am competitive at heart, when it comes to my students and inclusion, it’s all about what will help them. I am adaptable and organized, which can be helpful in a collaborative environment where things are changing to fit whatever hiccup or challenge arises. I know where my strengths are and I see
During my years of community service, I have done multiple projects and activities through different clubs such as Key Club. In the years I was in this organization, I have done over 50 hours of service every year. I really enjoyed doing the homeless sleepout project that impacted the community by raising awareness of the homeless. I started Key Club my sophomore year of high school and fell in love with volunteering. I have done the homeless sleepout project two times.
