The goals that I have made for myself throughout the rest of the semester are to utilize my time better as well as to study for my tests and taking care of my priorities first hand. Throughout the past, it was common for me to blow off anything that was a priority or seen as an inconvenience to myself. However, I quickly learned that this is not how the ‘real world’ works and is completely unacceptable. The most beneficial component of PADR for me is the responsibility the course forces you to learn as well as
Likewise, creating a cover letter taught me many useful strategies that I will definitely put to use when it comes time for me to submit an official cover letter to a company.

Both are very important in essay writing, but it is more important to have clear content and material so that the audience can understand your position. Last year, I always seemed to lose points on essays for not having sophisticated enough prose, so I came into this class under the impression that the most important things in a
I now have a strong respect for the time I have to get my work done. Time management is often hard to grasp however, I have learned how to set goals for myself to stay on track. I often get frustrated when I mix-up of certain letters and I still have to re-read most texts or articles to grasp the concepts, but I am lucky that with the help I gained at St. John I was able to mostly outgrow the issue. Getting into the University of California Davis or any other UC seemed as if an unattainable dream, but my hard work throughout high school to get good grades and improve my test scores, culminated to an end up at a high level academic University. I believe this literacy I gained is functional due to the education system I grew up in.
I have always been the type of person to try to take on too much and let one aspect of my life suffer, which usually ends up being “me time.” Although I have improved so far during my college career, I have occasionally struggled with leaving work issues at work and not dwelling on them at home. I know that in order to avoid burnout and be a successful social worker, self-care is crucial. It is something that I strive to do more of as I approach the beginning of my professional career. To do so, I will take time out of my busy schedule to continue dancing, reading, and playing tennis. This career is my passion and I will do whatever it takes to help
To, Start, I am always able to pick up on things pretty fast especially when the situation calls for it. People have always considered me to be Lazy genius. In that even though I might not have gotten the best grades in class mostly because I rest on my Lorals. I also know that I would be in a much better situation if I had something to do like getting involved in a club or being part of a fraternity. The real reason why you should accept me in to the college is because I am breaking from those habits and My abilities when I properly apply them to school work can allow me to have excellent grades in class my skills are being able to be work under pressure, I am creative, I am a good team worker.

Student teaching has fanned the fire of my passion for being a teacher and been a light onto the path of how to become the best I can be. Reflecting on each experience, the successful and the not so successful, has encouraged me to continue to persevere and grow from these challenges. Not only did I discover a great deal about teaching but I also learned a great deal about myself. I was able to surpass all the challenges that I have faced. I touch the lives of my students and to be part of them even in a very little way.
You need to grow as a person. Living the college life will be a nice change of pace. I will learn how to sustain myself and how live every day as an “adult.” It will test me like I’ve never been tested before, but I’m keen to the challenge. I can already see myself experiencing this once in a lifetime experience and going to classes to learn from these great minds. But this is not where my journey ends.
