This year, I experienced both a personal and academic obstacle that correlate with one another. In January, I started the year long Medical Assisting program at my school. Prior to beginning this program, I was so excited to be getting a medically centered education, and learning about the field I wanted to expand my career in. After entering the program and learning that there is so much more to medicine than just taking care of patients, I began to lose my interest. This was shocking to me since, my whole life up until this year, I believed I was going to become an amazing medical doctor. It was extremely hard to accept the fact that, the career I had always dreamt of wasn’t something I was passionate about. I knew if I didn’t have that passion,
I played soccer sophomore and junior year in high school. My sophomore year was actually the first year I played soccer in a official team that I had to try out. But actually, my junior year I was chosen as a team captain and as a team captain I had to lead practice, starting with warm ups and stretches to leading them on the field and yelling my lungs out. Sometimes practice was rough to the point the girls wanted to give up but I always motivated them to do better and try their hardest because at the end of the day you were only cheating yourself or benefiting yourself. When my coach had to leave early for work, instead of finishing practice early, I continued to lead practice even if it meant taking the huge bag of balls home with me and
When I was a little girl I remember watching the news and always seeing big scary men being criminals. I thought that all women were mothers and had a family to take care of. I stuck with this theory because I connected everyone to my family. A working father, a stay at home mother, and a crazy younger brother. The stereotypical suburban family. Now as a sixteen year old girl I am more educated and know that everyone 's family situation is different. However, as a six year old it was harder to understand that because having a happy, healthy family was all I ever knew. In second grade there was a girl in my class who came in and told the whole class the her mom was going to be on the show “Intervention”. Little did I know that her mother was
Working within our school setting Â we work in an open and transparent manor This includes ensuring , all doors have glass panels in or be left open so that we can be seen as we teach, this is set in place to discourage any false allegations of occurrences of abuse as it can be disproved and can also protect teachers them self from having abuse. By doing so we are allowing open teaching which can dissolve any accusations made by either students or staff. Listening to children- Â All staff members to ensure they make time to listen to their pupils as it could raise concern regarding the childâ€™s welfare as when a child is willing to speak and feels comfortable and safe enough to open up it is the staffs duty to ensure this child is listened to and taken seriously.
As I began the field of education, I had a firm grasp of what to do and what not to do. The firm grasp I had an idea of was not anything compared to actually being in the field. My ideas of being stern and meticulous went out the window when it came to middle and elementary students. High school I could use some more stern tactics but grades K-8 proved to be more of a grey area to be worked on. I began working harder to make sure that everyone was achieving the same level of teaching. Students from ESL, those with IEPS, and the usual crowd made things very different in terms of instruction and how it should be handled. I had students in my first placement that did not have the ability to speak clear English but was able to write it. I also
After nearly losing my eye, nearly having my veins and arteries give out, and watching my father become unresponsive, I knew that I wanted to go into the medical field. This became a part of my very being, I strove and strive to learn as much about first aid and treatments as I am able. As it came time for me to think on a career path I was forced to think about the logistics of college pricing and efficiency; I decided on going through an EMT course, attempting to get a job to pay for the rest of my schooling as a nurse or search and rescue
What are the primary issues in this scenario and what information is Principal Miller likely to need in order to demonstrate appreciation for and sensitivity to the diversity in the school community?
We are more likely to give out information to one another if we have positive relationships.
The medical field has always been interesting to me since I was a child and the thought of saving a life astonishes me. My passion for medicine has developed as I grew older, especially when my Grandmother was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. In 2015, my grandmother was diagnosed with this type of cancer, and we later found out that it spread to her liver and her spine. Her liver was covered with Mets and therefore was classified as stage 4. Her cancer was very aggressive and was extremely hard to control. The doctors tried many types of chemotherapy that physically affected her, but the effect was never positive. I researched her condition and types of treatments for months until I realized there was no solution that her oncologists
Many of their principles align with my teaching philosophy as well as my classroom management preferences. For example, on the very first day of school, my students and I will work together to develop a behavior contract that will contain the rules/norms of our classroom. We will brainstorm ideas together on an anchor chart, and then I will consolidate these responses into cohesive phrases. Once the “published” copy of the behavior contract has been presented to the students, and no changes need to be made, each student will sign the contract, indicating that they plan to abide by these rules every day, and if they make a poor choice, they accept the consequences that are to follow. The consequences for the broken rules/norms will also be discussed as a class. We will use the exact process mentioned above in order to create an anchor chart of consequences that will ensue if students chose not to follow the
Day two clinicals. This day went so much smoother. I had the same two patient as the day before and one got discharged and I got a new patient. I feel like my second day I had an amazing relationship with my one patient. I got her to eat a little more that day because I knew what to talk to her about. When people are happier they tend to eat more than being depressed. She really enjoyed my company. Since she had a stage 4 pressure ulcer, they got an air mattress bed. We had to move her out of her old bed onto this new bed. In which I was worried about because she was bed bound. We had more than enough people to help me accomplish this. I had about seven people help with this process. I am very grateful for all the help I receive for this. I got to help you mess with the

The Mora High School cafeteria is a very familiar place to me, with it’s columns in the middle of the room, the off-white paint, and white and blue tiled floor. The cafeteria is usually a place full of a lot of kids and incredible amounts of noise. It’s nearly empty except for the four tables placed in the formation of a square near the little nook where the lunch ladies serve us food, or at least what tries to pass as food. The seats around each table are occupied by the cast of Annie celebrating the completion of their second show. The cast of Annie doesn’t even come close to filling the cafeteria, but the noise level could nearly be the same as when it’s fully filled during lunch. Over the years that’s what I’ve come to expect from the play kids. Play kids are a special breed of people. We’re super quirky, and we don’t care what other people think about us. There may not be many of us, but we are very good at creating a lot of noise.
On Friday 22 January 2016, I was involved in an incident that resulted in two Rangers, SFC Chimere Chuta and SGT Byran Dent, receiving a citation for disorderly conduct. I was out with several Non Commissioned Officers from my SLC class and Rangers from different NCOES school/class. Early in the evening I decided to drive and not drink; however, at the end of the night I ran into SFC Steve Lloyd, my former 2/75 Squad Leader, and we decided to take a shot of alcohol together. Not feeling comfortable to drive back to Fort Gordon, I decided to take a cab and not risk the chance of getting a DUI.
