“If you dream it, you can do it” -Walt Disney. I have always dreamed of going to Catholic Central like my Grandpa Bill Sommers, my Grandma Kathleen Hands-Sommers, my dad David Kortz, my sister Kaleen Kortz, and my brother Will Kortz who currently goes there. I have watched them flourish and grow in their personality, their education and their faith. I dream about going to Catholic Central and growing as a person and in my catholic faith.
I would like to attend Archbishop Mitty High School for many reasons. Some of those reasons are the community, the academics, and the athletics. After shadow days, the open house, and hearing from students one of the primary reasons to attend Archbishop Mitty High School is the community. The students and teachers really know and care about each other. There is so much love to go around for everyone.
I was a shy child growing up and that made a lot of things difficult for me, for example making friends and being a part of group activities. This shy phase was apart of me all of my life; however, once I went to high school I changed. I had to take a music class and I thought that it would be easy for me to do choir because I was in my church’s choir for majority of my grammar school and junior high years. When I was in class I was able to take part in everything and participate, well it took a few days for me to warm up to the new environment.
My whole childhood, religion has been a large part of my family. Every Sunday we went to church and also participated in many church organizations. It was only when I was older that I realized the whole world was not in fact Catholic. While catholicism may not be the dominant subgroup in society, it was what I considered the norm in my early life. Even as I grew and began to learn about different religions, catholicism has still remained a central part of my life.
Sir Thomas More, the great English social philosopher, humanist and saint, once said “I die the king’s faithful servant, but Gods first” (The Thomas More Society)Thomas More was a great and notable figure in the Catholic Church because of his great actions for and to the church. More’s religious and educational journey started at a very young age; born and raised in London, More attended the best schools and through his education developed into the great scholar he is known to be in the Catholic Church. From the start, More was recognized and grew up to be a a great and remarkable scholar. Thomas More’s contributions to Catholicism, such as his famous pieces of writing and dialogues he used to defend the church led him to be a great saint
Throughout my three years of being in St. Thomas Aquinas High School, I have participated in a few different acts of service. For every year in my high school career, I did service at my old elementary and middle school, All Saints Catholic School. During Presidents’ Day weekend, I provided help at their Church’s carnival for four days--Thursday to Sunday. All Saints Catholic School’s mission statement states “The Mission of All Saints Catholic School is to provide an atmosphere rich in the Catholic faith where each child is challenged to grow in a safe environment.
Tiffani and Mrs. Tivia, they are so helpful and make my job much easier. We work as a team to educate two-years-old children on basic life learn lessons. We divide the children up into groups, depends on how many we get that day, and we do different activities with the children. Mrs. Tiffani group was Reading: she reads to them, teach them their alphabets, and their weeks and months. Mrs. Tivia group was Science: teach them their colors, the weather, and have different items to teach and describe how things feel.
Contemplating on growing up in a large, catholic family, I have faced minimal adversity and am extremely blessed to be a student at MVMS. I have been exposed to many opportunities to my benefit, one of which is learning in your classroom. I appreciate the privileges I have been given. I can 't say I am particularly excited for 8th grade, but I know that conquering it will end the spiraling and confusing years of middle school.
I had been homeschooled my entire school career, but after a lot of failing tests and crying, my mom decided it would be best if I tried public school. I was not into the idea at all. I thought that those public school kids would destroy me, they knew so much more than I did, (Not true) and had so much more social experience (Also not true). I had been going to church activities for my entire life, and my parents made it a point to sign me up for weekend painting camps, and classes at the rec center. Yet it was nothing compared to the 6+ hours these kids have been at school every day.
People have been trying to put prayer back in school for quite a while, though some people are against putting prayer back in school. They have been organizing fundraisers, organizations, campaigns, and several other things. Some people take putting prayer back in school to the next level, and they post about it on social media.¨The debate over prayer in public schools has been a quiet one, largely because it's pretty clear that setting aside time for prayer in public schools violates our Constitutional separation between church and state. In 1962, the United States Supreme Court ruled that public schools cannot have official prayer times for that reason. Yet with every school tragedy, there is always some outcry that 'removing God from the
The last, loose cable that kept me suspended was a girl my age who we now lived next door to; Her family were very devout Christians, and occasionally took me to church with them. They also encouraged my own family to send me to a faith-based summer camp along with my new friend. At Camp Imadene, I met Jesus personally for the first time. I don 't believe, at that time, I fully understood the weight of what I was learning.
So much has happened to me in my 14 years of living! I’ve changed schools twice, made the Rocky Mountain Ballroom team, and met my best friends ever in the 2nd grade. So much more has happened in my life but these are some of the best things! All of these have helped me get through thick and thin. Changing schools the first time was pretty rough.
Since this course would be my first PA course, it is very exciting. Throughout college, I have been taking courses not entirely relevant to the Physician Assistant major. I hope to learn many practical aspects related to physician assistance such as; learning how to take a patient's vitals, learning how to administer a full physical examination, learning about certain diseases, learning how to obtain and record a patient's history. I also want to understand the clinical process in more depth, learning and appreciating the art of medicine, as well as having a deeper appreciation and understanding about the Physician Assistant profession. I also want to obtain a very strong foundation on the Physician Assistant major before graduate school.
“Adoption” is the first word in my family dictionary, a noun that defines my life and how I live. My parents adopted me when I was 13 months and taught me how my heritage defines my identity. Through heritage camps and adoption conferences, I came to accept my Chinese background as the dual part that defines my life in America. Outwardly I represented a model Chinese-American student, yet I loathed the stereotypical mold.
Collaboration among health care professionals is defined as assuming complementary roles and cooperatively working together, sharing responsibility for problem solving and making decisions to formulate and carry out plans for patient care. (Fagin, 2008). In any field of health care where physicians and nurses interact with one another for the purpose of quality patient care, it is vital for them to work together as one and understand the needs of their patients as well as each other’s roles and responsibilities. In short, teamwork should prevail for excellent patient service. Therefore, being in full partnership as a nurse with the physician and other healthcare professional is another recommendation that is applied by the RWJ-IOM report.
