As you can see I always had a passion for working with children ever since I was young which is why my future goals are to build my own recreation center for kids eight to eighteen which will be called “Kinship Unity”. Furthermore, I believe attending this university will give me the opportunity to expand my skills and knowledge to advocate for those who need a person that will stand up for them and help them to be able to advocate for themselves one day or even others and to see them succeed in life. Thank you for your
The True Diary of Luke Skewis By; Luke Skewis Hi I’m Luke Skewis. I’m a 5’7, Sophomore at Negaunee High School. The stories you are about to read and very important lessons I learned from my friends, family, and coaches. I hope you enjoy The True Diary of Luke Skewis. 2nd Grade It was Super Bowl Sunday and I invited all of my friends over for a “Super Bowl Party.” It was the first one that I had as a kid.
I make sure I spend time with my friends and family. Recently, every Christmas I do a gift exchange with my friends. We all go shopping, and then return to someone’s house to exchange presents. We bake cookies and watch Christmas movies too. I visit my grandparents and cousins over Christmas break also.
The service hours I completed were coaching and leading lacrosse clinics and practices for girls ages six to seventeen. As you can see, I personally love lacrosse and jumped at the opportunity to help younger kids learn to love the game that has given me so much. I personally grew immensely from this experience. To start off with hillcrest, I was always very involved with this organization from a very young age. Up until 2012, my dad was
I would like to continue my education at Cal State La to pursue my post baccalaureate study and earn a teacher credential in mild to moderate disabilities. Becoming a teacher has always been a goal of mine, since I was young girl. I always known I wanted to become a teacher thanks to all the great teachers I had through my education in elementary and high school, who inspired me and pushed me to work hard because they cared. But, most importantly showed me how a teacher should teach and care for their students, making my experiences in school deeply meaningful. And because of all the great support they gave me I fell in love with the profession of teaching.
We’re going to the state fair to talk to people one on one instead of talking through a screen. We’re going to the state fair to be with friends to play around and be ourselves. We’re going to the state fair to force us to become lost in these mobs or large group of people and we’re meet fresh people. We’re going to the state fair to be different engage with different people. We’re going to the state fair to experience socialization and to come home and have a smile on our face.
But the believe that disabled children have the ability to recover quickly once they are supported by their families and the community in which they live and feel that they are heroes for trying to recover from the disease. Also in some case, educational integration in some schools stimulates the disabled child to recover because teachers treat him like a non-disabled
Whenever I take on an assignment, whether it is school or work related or anything else for that matter, I always put my heart and soul to it. Many of my friends and teachers would call me over-ambitious, but I do not see that as a negative designation. Something I have learned through experience is that if you want something, you have to work for it. Going to an elementary school with a history of royal children attending, such as our crown Princess Victoria, as well as many talented students, put a lot of pressure on me to succeed. I managed to graduate with straight A’s, and received a scholarship for “excellent study results”, something I am very proud of and still value highly.
Some of those strategies are community based, and others are school based, but many reside within the family. They are rooted in the deep connection that develops when parents engage with their children. Play remains an ideal venue for parents to engage fully, and child professionals must reinforce the value of this play. Some play must remain entirely child driven, with parents either not present or as passive observers, because play builds some of the individual assets children need to develop and remain
My favorite part of being a counselor was getting to know the campers and being the best counselor to them. I have attended the JCC since I was in Kindergarten, I always wanted to be in Habimah and when I got the chance, I never wanted to leave. Unfortunately, there comes a point when you have to graduate and move on. My way of moving on was becoming a counselor and giving back to the campers what was always given to me. This summer really impacted me as a person because seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces, taught me that community service does change this world for the
I expect it to be really challenging and hard. From what I have heard you get a lot of homework and essays. Since my teachers in middle school are really good I don’t think I will have a problem in high school. I also expect high school to be a lot of fun. It will be fun because I get to have classes with my friends and I get to do fun activities like gym and different clubs.
When I was growing up, I always wanted to work in the medical field. Freshman year of high school, I joined Student Athletic Training at my school because it exposed me to medical injuries in high stress situations. Even though I was working with an athletic trainer and loving it, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do; I switched from wanting to be a pediatrician to an oncologist and then an orthopedic surgeon. I settled on becoming an OBGYN because I had just watched my sister give birth to her son. I thought that delivering babies had to be the most important job because I’d be taking care of new life.

In my sophomore year I was involved in two great programs. The first is “Newcomers Hope Club”, where we help provide new students with the tools they need to brighten their future, not only in school, but in life as well. In summary, we provide answers to all of their questions and concerns, and if we ever do not have a sure answer, we take the time to find it for them. We also provide them with outings where they can meet new people and connect with their peers, for example, we organized an outing to the movies to see The Fifth Wave. The second program is “Leadership Symposium” where we strive to inspire and motivate students with positive attitudes and good messages.
During my years at Peoria Notre Dame HS, cheerleading has been a big part of my life, and something I hope to continue at the University of Dayton. I am an outgoing and social person and it’s easy for me to learn routines quickly. As captain for both the JV and varsity squads, I have put together multiple award winning routines, selecting the music, choreographing and teaching the routine to the squad. Besides the actual cheer routines, I have used my communication skills to keep squad members and their parents informed. I try to set a good example with my own behavior, I love helping to create enthusiasm for cheerleading in young kids, and I have learned a lot from mediating issues within the team.
