There are many different ways that you can help students that are dealing with homelessness. John Heegard,a veteran teacher said that “The way I look at it, my job is to build relationships, get to know my kids. I have to be honest, open, and treat them like young adults, which is what they are. Valencia and I already had a relationship, so the trust level was at a place where she could trust me.” (Holgersson, 2010).
This week I had to present an activity in the staff meeting on how we perceive ourselves and how others view us. The activity involved writing an introduction speech relating to an award. I think the staff had fun with the activity and I learned more about how the staff perceived themselves. I was able to improve on my presentation skills when communicating in front of team of professionals. At each staff meeting that I attend I have been learning a lot about what other staff members do at the agency.
By the end of the semester, we were able to observe very positive results concerning both his receptive and expressive language, which was highly rewarding to see. I am also going to be working in Marquette’s Clinic again next semester where I will be working with clients who have aphasia. This opportunity will allow me to further my knowledge and interest of individuals who I have a special interest
Carolyn, You did a wonderful job with your description of the chief financial officer’s (CFO’s) responsibilities. Surprisingly enough, as the infection control practitioner, I have worked very closely with the chief financial officer at my organization. He is respected as the leader responsible for the organization’s financial status, but his role has broadened well beyond that capacity (Finkler, Jones & Kovner, 2013). Our CFO understands the importance of accreditation, and while we prepared for our annual DNV survey, he led the charge for improved facilities. He held meetings weekly with the facilities manager, environmental services manager and the infection control practitioner.
Field Journal #2 For the time that I have spent being an intern case manager at Mary’s Place Refugee Outreach, I believe that my personal growth as a person and in knowledge is never ending. From learning to be more assertive, to learning about how to navigate the Department of Social Services, I absolutely love my internship. A day has not gone by where I have not learned something valuable, whether it be from helping a client with their problem or from learning from my co-workers. From this internship alone, I have learned a lot about myself and from the people I work with.
The best thing I had accomplishment in high school is doing my 200 over hours in the Mercy Medical Hospital. Doing this was a big accomplishment because I learned how to communicate with the people in the community and also I had also learned new things on how to take care of the patients their to make them feel comfortable while they where their. How I earned these hours was by going once a week and doing four hours and I help people locate where they need to go and I also go to the floors and help them get their things ready when they are about to get discharged. Also, when I was able to work on the weekend and during my breaks I had done eight hours each day I took the extra hours to show that I am capable that I wanna help the people
Interning at the Green Room taught me organizational and determination skills, even when you have been organizing nearly hundreds of shoes for three days. I also learned that you have
After interning at Oak Street Health for seven weeks, I found that I have many strengths that can play important roles in my future career success. First, my personality as an organized person allows me to plan and complete tasks quickly while collaborating with other individuals. I am good at getting job done, being flexible to new ideas and respecting other people and their culture. For example, I have set deadlines to initiate, implement, and review a patient engagement survey I conducted. I think I have been able to conduct the activities and manage time wisely.
As an early childhood educator, I must say, that poverty is a serious problem and every childhood educator needs to be aware of this, in order to demonstrate compassion toward children and their families. For instance, it is important that EC understand the socioeconomic status of the children and families that they serve. Consequently, research and knowledge about poverty would allow EC to understand the children better, such as their individual needs. However, knowing how to assist children and their families, based on the resources makes a difference. As an early childhood educator, children of poverty can benefit from learning through accommodations.
Now that I’ve made the impression, it’s time to make people know that I’m here. All the new things I’ve learned and the adjustments I’ve had to make with those people I’ve worked with contributed to what I’ve brought with me to MBPS. I’ve learned that professionalism is not just coming to the office in corporate attire and greeting everyone I meet. My first team leader taught me or rather reminded me, since I’ve known these all along, things MBPS employees here typically know that would show I’m a professional – coming to work and meetings not just on time but ahead of time, listening even if I have so much to say, accepting my weaknesses, working on my weaknesses,
My name is Francisca H. Montes and work with the Migrant Program here at the district. We have one student who is in desperate need of a shelter. Unfortunately, he is using drugs to get away from his pain of being homeless and without a family. Do you have any resources or can refer to any resources that might be able to him? Any lead or program that can assist this young man would be greatly appreciated.

I volunteered at the PI Math Assistant for my service learning assignment. This assignment helped me to know how much I enjoyed being around people and helping others as much as I can and most importantly this experience helped me a lot to see how helping others is also helping yourself at the same time. This assignment has a lot of advantages in me besides helping the trig student I was even learning myself from the student that I was tutoring for almost one month and twenty hours. The experience of helping others gives me the motivation to even do better in my other classes and I feel like I did help someone to be a better student in math. Besides tutoring the trig student I got to know him better personally and we become a good friends

Volunteering at McKenna Farms Therapy Services I was able to observe pediatric occupational therapy sessions. Not only did I get to observe Occupational Therapy sessions, but I observed Hippotherapy sessions too. What I found so unique about McKenna Farms is that they had Speech Therapist, Physical Therapist, and Occupational Therapist all together at one clinic. This allowed me to witness how the different types of therapy fit together and how the therapist would collaborate to find the best way to treat the children. My favorite part was finding ways to communicate with the kids.
