The Morehead Honors Program opens many doors for the receivers. Several magnificent programs and internships are offered to students that are part of this wonderful program; these include an internship in Frankfort, an intensive summer research program for students interested in medicine or dentistry, a commitment to host a show on the campus television station for a year, and a year-long volunteering experience working with children in after-school programs. Honestly, the volunteering experience in after-school programs for children interests me enormously. Along with building onto my existing skills, I will develop new skills, grow as a person due to the experience, and face my fears and anxieties. I believe I would thoroughly enjoy that …show more content…
For the past two years, I have volunteered to babysit my cousins and neighbors. These experiences have greatly assisted in the development of the skills I now hold. The greatest skill I have obtained is responsibility. When I babysit, I am responsible for the life or lives of children that don’t know right from wrong. If anything goes wrong, I am held responsible. Feeding, watching, and playing with children has been my main concerns on weekends. Along with responsibility, I have learned to be patient. A child will most likely never do what I tell them to do the first time, so I must keep repeating my words and actions. Patience is key to babysitting, because if I don’t have that characteristic then I am likely to explode and cause emotional or physical damage to a child. As a result of this tremendous volunteer service, I have learned that I am a role model to many children. When I babysit, they watch how I act and talk so I want to set the best example. Due to the children constantly watching me, I know what words and actions are wrong to use in any situation. The children have taught me how to be a better person, along with me teaching them how to grow up to be an outstanding individual. Although I have several skills due to my experience with children already, I hope to improve them. There can always be improvement with any skill, even if I think I have …show more content…
I want to become a better role model for children, but more importantly, I yearn to become a wonderful individual. Children hold a very special place in my heart because I adore caring for them. They are so innocent and care-free, which I wish I could be right now. When I am babysitting, I see how the children are constantly growing, changing their personalities, forming new perspectives, and altering their overall actions. As a result, I have tried to transform myself into an outstanding role model. I have altered my eating habits, my thoughts, my words, my actions, and many other aspects of my life. I did all those things so future generations will be generous, healthy, thoughtful, determined, and hold many other great characteristics. If I could become part of the after-school programs, I would be ecstatic. I have already altered my ways to better suit an environment with children. Also, I have grown tremendously during the past two years, but I could develop even more. Becoming a better person is something I will always strive to do, so this experience would assist me greatly. Being around children makes me change my awful habits and helps me form a better life for

During my high school career I have made a consistent effort to stay involved in both my school and community. Through clubs such as Key Club, National Art Honor Society, and National Honor Society I’ve been able to help out locally and globally in an abundance of ways. In Key club and NHS I am able to volunteer in traditional ways, but National Arts Honors Society allows me to contribute to my community and school in a creative way that stimulates people 's minds through art. Due to these activities having a significant impact on my life my future career options are based around what I have learned from them.
The National Honor Society (NHS) is a notoriously prestigious organization, and it is possibly one of the greatest honors a student can earn in their high school career. Becoming a member of the NHS can open many doors for students, including leadership experience and opportunities for college scholarships. Admission for this program is based on certain ideals. The criteria for admission-scholarship, service, character, and leadership-are four areas in which, at least I believe, I excel. Even when I was a young child, I was very concerned with school.
I am extremely excited to begin college and take on the challenge of Honors courses. Honors courses will both expand my knowledge and ability in not only engineering, but many aspects of my life. I truly fit all the criteria of an Honors Student. I am confident that I share the same values and characteristics of an Honors Program member such as going above and beyond and examining the world around me. My numbers alone do not show my character and commitment to scholarship and learning, or my commitment to the Barry County community around me, but my actions do.
Personally, I never was the most confident person when it came to competing or facing up to a challenge. This was mainly because I never felt “good enough” against individuals who were “better than me.” Having this mindset never had a positive effect on me. One day, however, I decided to no longer let this get the best of me. I needed to prove to myself that trying my best is always the optimal choice.
I was very excited to be a part of your job I am aware of to be a childcare worker you have to have patience and be very well with working with others you could be a better person for this job if you 're patient you work with others and your commutative I have patience because if you don 't have patience then you can’t have patience to do anything one example in my life is when my brother was fixing our brother was fixing our basketball hoop I was patient enough to let him fix it and when my grandma was going shopping with me and my brother i had patience to wait four hours to pick out pants I am good with working with others if you don’t work with others they’ll be fights and arguments an example of working with others is when i
I was never the perfect student, nor was I always perfectly behaved. I understand that there are more people like this, that is why I strive to help others in achieving their own personal goals. Spending time at school tutoring sessions, and the school band program has allowed me to help people in the way that I strive to. I am able to help people become better at a school subject that they may be struggling with, or even teach someone how to play certain type of percussion instrument that they may not have known how to play. I want to be able to look back on those experiences and know that I may have inspired someone to help others in the same way that I did for them.
This helped me a lot while I was involved in working with the children in the special needs school. Working within this environment has helped me gain a lot of confidence in myself this is because, it has proved to me that I can
Within Merete Kropp’s Washington Post article, “Five Ways to Avoid Becoming a Helicopter Parent,” she discusses the how common it is today to be an overbearing parent and suggests ways to avoid becoming a helicopter parent. Her philosophy is that children learn and develop more on their own when they realize how to effectively work through issues and difficulties. The second article, “Dear Strangers, Please Stop Telling Me My Active Daughter Might Get Hurt,” written by Leslie Kendall Dye of The Washington Post, discusses the freedom that she gives her daughter. She talks about how she is continuously criticized for letting her daughter actively play, climb, and swing outdoors.
My babysitting experiences have given me essential skills that I am convinced will help me excel in an Early Childhood Studies degree. I have learned how to stay calm and patient in stressful situations, as well as how to provide a safe and supporting environment for children. My experience as a babysitter has taught me the value of encouraging children's creativity and problem-solving abilities. These skills have inspired me to make positive contributions to the field. As a reading buddy, I support and encourage children who struggle with reading and are reluctant to read aloud.
As the assistant director, part of my job was to interact with the parents and help the kids if they didn't understand what was being asked of them by the director. The adult cast members always made a point to tell me how much joy they felt when watching me interact with the kids and how thankful they were for my organization and positive attitude that the children looked to for guidance and encouragement. I could see pieces of myself in the kids I worked with when helping them to feel confident in their ability to perform and do something that was out of their comfort
I feel very good for this observation because I see how the teacher works with the child and something that I can do in the future with the child. For next observation, I want to see a child in a daycare center because I can get more experience for bigger children between 24-36 months. Also, the child between 24-36 months that will have a lot of things to talk and action. When I teach children in the future I know how to handle it. I can see what active that the teacher teach and how they do to the child.
As a child I grew up being taught that it takes a village to raise a child. This being branded within me, I always seemed to help my older cousins with their children. My biggest contribution would be made through babysitting. I enjoy babysitting, because I have a system that usually works and parents are satisfied. Firstly, I check to see if the child has eaten.
When I first started babysitting it was for a family with two children that were under the age of four, a little boy named Bentley and a newborn girl named Charlotte . The little boy has low functioning autism, which mean he was unable to speak and did things differently than other children. It was difficult to watch them at times, charlotte would be crying and fussy. Bentley would be crying for all my attention directed towards him, but he also had days where he did not want my attention and wanted me to leave him alone. Dinner time was always one of the hardest times of the night.
Teachers have the ability to make a difference in a child’s life. Teaching can be challenging job with many frustrations, but the rewards of teaching are numerous. I love children and want to help them learn. I want to be able to say that I made a difference in a child’s life. I have also considered business as another profession.
As a professional, it is my personal responsibility to help cultivate the community that they live in. Children are the future and I believe that interventions and social programs will award all children the best opportunity to flourish. My personal experiences in aiding the vulnerable population have served as a basis for growth and preparation. It has been shown evident in my life
