I took courses across multiple disciplines, yet I remained remote from the ideas presented – until I met my professor for General Chemistry during my junior year. I enjoyed the class lectures, and I attended the professor’s office hours often that she asked me to become a learning assistant (LA) for the course. As luck would have it, I acquired the job title. With the help of four other LAs, I assisted the professor teach a class of two hundred students. The five of us met weekly and collaborated with the professor on lesson plans while answering students’ questions during lecture.
There are many instances in the novel that take place during these times. “‘Who wants to be the first tonight, for feelings?’ Jonas’s father asked at the conclusion of their evening meal.” (Lowry 4) and “Usually, at the morning ritual when family members told their dreams,...” (Lowry 34) are both quotes of when the mandatory family discussions take place. There are speakers that are in each family units home where the government listens to everything and gives announcements. Each family unit can have two children maximum. On the other hand people or parents in our modern society can have as many kids as they want.
I asked Jamie if she had brought a costume for the dance and she said yes. It was now 3:30 PM and time to go to Baxter’s dining hall for the mandatory volunteer meeting before the campers started showing up. After the meeting, Jamie and I along with four other counselors went back to Charlotte cabin to wait for our campers to
I designed posters and advertisements under strict deadlines, pitched ideas at meetings, and volunteered at events. NIGHTS OF BAND Being in charge of human resources for the Night of Bands event at Tupper taught me about how important a strong team is. I managed the volunteer pool and moved volunteers around to locations depending on where help was needed. Because of solid organization, the event flowed smoothly.

In todays ever-changing professional environment with new technology being released daily, self improvement is the best way to stay ahead of the crowd. I will implement this into my life daily by following new podcasts and reading industry review articles. For example, I will read blog posts on the Moz Blog (https://moz.com/blog) to stay updated on SEO and online marketing schools. This implementation could be multiple times a day during breaks, lunch, while relaxing after work depending on the volume of new
Case Scenario Practicing in a school setting, there are numerous individuals in the same building looking to positively impact and change students’ lives. Interdisciplinary staff consistently work together to meet the various needs of the diverse student population. As the social worker, I am privy to the strengths and weaknesses of clients as they are presented to me by the student and his/her family and shared in interdisciplinary team meetings upon the consent to do so by the student’s parent(s) or guardian(s). Teachers are only present and involved in the interdisciplinary meetings when a student assigned to their class is being discussed. However, after a meeting last week, a teacher sends me an e-mail inquiring about a student she had
As a class officer, my job was to represent my class and their interests in addition to serving as a bridge between the students and the administration. As class president, I was responsible for preparing my class for each pep rally, which involved coordinating volunteers, collecting supplies, and communicating the details of the pep rally to my class, such as the theme and what to wear. I also oversaw the other class officers; I would delegate work, organize meetings, and ensure the completion of tasks. As student body vice-president, my main jobs were to train the freshman and sophomore officers and assist the student body co-presidents. I helped organize and lead the annual student council leadership seminar to prepare the younger officers.
This year I have prepared myself for college and career readiness. Being able to manage my time is one major skill needed for college. Being able to write a letter to contact a business we would like to Job Shadow also prepares me to communicate with others which also helps me in the real world.

In the mentor program you meet with a freshmen every week and discuss some of the challenges they are facing while adjusting to high school.

Leadership camp is four days filled with learning, growing, building relationships, and a lot of excitement. The campers were separated into small groups with whom they spent the week with.

Behavioral Intervention Team: I attend Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) meetings regularly where I work with rest of the team members on reviewing incident reports submitted my students/staff members and assess the level of threats and risks. In each meeting we get involved in the critical decision making process to address emotional and behavioral issues associated with our students. I recommend the course of action after evaluating the situations from the faculty point of views. In Spring 2016, I took part in BIT presentation as a presenter in order to educate campus community about behavior of concern and reporting procedures. Subsequently, in the same semester I presented emotional and behavioral management strategies at TLC’s professional

In addition to these educational components, the program will offer sports recreation in the form of basketball games. These games will allow participants to get in the recommended exercise for the day, and work together with other participants.
On October 18, 2016, I attended the Volunteer Fair at Notre Dame de Namur University for three-quarters of an hour with my friend, Rheanna. The purpose of the event is to promote opportunities for college students to take an active part in society. It is also geared to assist the students in finding an internship and possibly explore outside of their immediate interests. The intent of the event succeeded in my view; I found three places that I am interested in and am waiting to receive additional information via email. I was also able to engage in a conversation with the representatives, especially ones from the Becton Healthcare Resources and Sparkiverse.
Eventually, I learned that I love spending time with them. Four times a week I bathe them, play with them, take them to the park, make food for them, and put them to bed. After taking care of Maxi and Milo for over a year, I learned how to solve conflicts, be a positive role model, take responsibility, and be an active listener. March 15th 2014: This was my second time working backstage during a high school production. However, this was only my first time working as Stage Manager.
