I plan to continue working at Rizzo’s until I graduate college and receive new employment pertaining to my degree. I believe it is a wonderful place to work and they truly appreciate their dedicated customers. In the past two years that I have worked at Rizzo’s, I have been witness to many proactive changes made by management. Based on my
During the past three years as Sherry Betcher’s supervisor, I have observed tremendous professional growth not only in her skill set as The Governor John Engler’s Center for Charter Schools (“Center”) Assessment Manager, but also in her mindset as a visionary leader in the utilization of assessment data at all CMU-authorized schools. Upon reviewing Sherry’s job description, I requested that she add a few items, under the “Roles and Responsibilities” that demonstrate the additional responsibilities she has taken on during the past two years. The words added are good language for a job description, but do not fully capture the magnitude of Sherry’s day-to-day work. To “manage and deliver holistic and individualized school support in the utilization of
I cannot thank you enough for the opportunity you gave me to work at the AAFA over the past couple weeks. I can genuinely tell you that the time I have spent working with you has been the most educational, worldly, and worth-while experience that an upcoming junior in high school can ever hope to accomplish during the summer. I learned more over the course of two weeks at the AAFA than I have ever before. The amount of proficiency that I have gained in international trade, manufacturing, and legislation on the hill is stupendous. Consequently, I loved coming into the office every day to work on the briefs and greeting papers that helped to extended this knowledge.
My job at Modell’s Sporting Goods as a part-time cashier, has provided me with an opportunity to earn a salary as well as teach me some valuable life lessons, such as responsibility, dependability, and customer service skills to name a few. The first three years of my high school career, I was a three sport student athlete. I
For many of the campers, this is the only event they have all summer long. We basically become the children’s parents for three days and nights as they stay at The Way Summer Camp with us. This means that our needs become second to the kids that we are put in charge of during the camp, and I learned so much from my children and the other
For over two years I have been blessed to be involved in teaching young children. When I had begun to help at Kids Zone it quickly changed into a transitional period. The administrator, Melissa Cooke, moved to Michigan six months after I had started helping and so it was being run temporarily by the Fisher family for a few months. Unfortunately when Melissa left, the entirety of the volunteer staff stopped volunteering. It was up to the Fisher family and I, five unqualified people to lead the Kids Zone program every week.
Going through the APPIC process and defending my dissertation proposal, I have grown more than any other year attending UNCO. I sought assistance with my APPIC application and dissertation. I learned faculty are great resources for feedback and support during this process. I also polished my curriculum vita and learned the competitive nature of APPIC internships. Personally, I learned my stress limiting by writing my dissertation proposal and applying for APPIC internships within a three month time span.
I participated in Mathletes for my junior and senior year. With the help of my 3 teammates, we placed ourselves 1st in the last meet. When I was working for the Wonder General Store, it taught me how to communicate well with my coworker to provide an excellent customer service and providing nice profit for the store. I also worked during the summer doing landscaping job that required teamwork to get the jobs clean, consisted, and on
Class starts exactly at 8 and the second I got there I already recognized 2 of my buddies and 5 other McKinley students. Instantly I could tell this wasn't going to be that bad. I came to this class with a goal of getting an A and 3 days in, I finish quarter one of algebra and the teacher made me a math tutor along with some other kids. Math class was easy after words from then on. Once or twice a week during the summer I would go out, watch a movie or go eat with some friends and that was mainly my entire summer.
As a child I enjoyed the 3 months off during the summer, but did become bored as the summer dragged on. I also remember how the school year was rather crammed together. Outside of the weekend the only real time off we had was 2 weeks for Christmas break and one week for spring break outside of a day here and there for various holidays. My children for the past couple of years have been on a "blended" schedule. They have a 2 month summer with an extra week for spring break and a full 2 weeks for fall break while still going the 180 required days.
Without being in 4-H since I was a Cloverbud I would not be the person that I am today. 4-H has also helped me with my leadership skills. I have been my clubs Secretary for four years now and being able to take charge and having a role in the meetings every time we have one is very nice. 4-H has been a part of my family for a long time, my older brother, sister, and my twin have all shown at the Ashland County
