As I am quickly approaching the end of my senior, I am looking back at how far I have come since freshman year and everything that Henley High School has helped me accomplish in my life. In preparation for the life that every senior must experience after school, the senior capstone project was put in place to help seniors find out what they would suit them as career and give them some of the necessary tools in achieving that. Part of the capstone was earning service hours at a non profit organization, that can go on a resume. With serving came a facilitator, who guides one’s service, and also the challenges and success of the service itself. To Provide help on future careers, Henley High School also provided an opportunity to take the CIS test
Heck, I am 24 years old and can still do cheer I did when I was 5 years old. Obviously this had a long lasting impression on my memory. Words like: psyched, victory, defense, offense, longhorn, and touchdown were some of the first words I learned to spell by memory. Face it we all know how to spell Bananas and Respect due to fabulous women who chanted it in their

Lead-K Sets the Standard for Educational Goals Within Deaf Community As our country moves toward an all-inclusive society, where every gender, race, culture and social group is revered for its independency and uniqueness, one fraction of the nation seems to be left in the backdrop. The deaf community population makes up about 4 million of the total United States population,. The deaf community faces many challenges, but none may be greater than the access to early education and language acquisition. Many deaf children are born to hearing parents, which henceforth produce a challenge for the young child to receive the necessary skills for their success in the educational realm. The average reading level by deaf students who are 18 years of age has remained at 3rd to 4th grade level for the past fifty years.
A strong work ethic, a fierce focus, an attention to detail, and a strong desire for success…these are some of the qualities that make Miss Elizabeth Peck a very special young lady. I have known Elizabeth for two and a half years as her classroom teacher and Beta Club advisor. In every interaction that I have had with Elizabeth, she has been the picture of maturity and class. She is an extraordinary young lady who has proven that persistence is the most reliable indicator of success. Elizabeth was a student in my English II-Honors class, and she immediately set herself apart from her peers by turning in work that was fastidiously done.

For this field experience assignment I decided to use a students from Mrs. Carrillo’s 2nd grade class who wishes to go by the name of “Elsa” for this activity. Elsa is a student who is still currently learning English, and whose primary language spoken and written at home is Spanish. Mrs. Carrillo expressed that she is falling a little behind in most subjects because of the language barrier but she is definitely progressing and improving as the school year moves forward. As far as the SOLMO chart, I would like to talk about all the categories and where I would place Elsa on this graphic organizer and why. For comprehension, I would say that Elsa is at a level 3.
I used open-ended questions, closed ended questions, I encouraged storytelling, and I positioned myself at an equal level with the resident as she sat in a chair. (Touhy, Jett and Ebersole, 2014, p. 67). I used the storytelling technique right when I started the interview. This helped the resident become more comfortable with me, and open up more about her life history. She then was able to reminisce from the questions I had asked her about her past.
She spends many hours tutoring her peers and helping Spanish speaking students to help improve their content skills and English. She has spent time at the Boys and Girls Club and at Centennial BOCES tutoring and translating. Many young people in our community have benefited from her willingness to give back. She has great understanding, especially for a high school student, how much change can happen if we all help each other. English is not Lucero 's native language.
She emphasized that none of this would have been possible without a team of speech pathologists and family. On her end since being published, she has formed many support groups for other families in the area who are going though similar situations. At the end of every chapter in this book, she wrote different bullet points of advice that she would have wanted to know at the time. This book left me with a few take away points. Professionally, as I have written above, I learned more about a future role I can play in a school and different ways to be successful in that role.
