I am a member of many different associations at Canyon High School, but the club that has made the most impact in my life is Leadership. Leadership is a selective program on campus that invites students who have shown leadership qualities to improve them to make a bigger impact. I was nominated into the program my freshman year and have carried on with the program all throughout high school. The club’s main focus is to encourage students to use their leadership qualities to prevent and stop bullying. As nominees, we undergo a two-day training session that exposes us to ways to improve ourselves and those around us.
This past fall semester I have been taking a college course at UWGB through Bay Port. Everyday I go and get to student teach a Kindergarten class with my former Kindergarten teacher. I love every second of getting to sit and work with the children. i get to set up my own lesson plans and help teach lessons. I believe that UW-Eau Claire 's education program could help make me the best teacher I can be.
Studies have shown that animal therapy can decrease anxiety and pain, lower blood pressure and help alleviate depression, while offering companionship and a distraction from treatments. The Sobiech family decided to adopt a puppy named, Daisy, to help them through the hard times. She was like a furry panacea. As Daisy’s little tiff with the puppy in the mirror played out, we all turned and regarded her for a moment, then looked at one another as we wiped the tears from our faces. The tension and sadness shifted so easily into torrents of laughter, and I realized what a blessing this little beast was (Sobiech 75).
I have taken 3 AP classes previously, and currently enrolled in 2 for senior year of high school. AP classes have prepared me for college classes which take time to study and comprehend. I have also taken plenty of Honors classes, by having the opportunity to expand my learning. I was involved in Cure Club, HOSA Club and Beta Club my junior year of high school. After I changed high schools, after my junior year, I joined HOSA and Beta again at my new school.
Applying to be a resident assistant is one of the best and most rewarding decisions that I made in college. Without my experiences in Residence Life, my college experience would not have been as rich as fulfilling. I was a freshmen women’s RA for my first two years as an RA and I always look back fondly over that time. Although there was definitely a lot of struggles and conflicts that occurred in my freshmen modules, that’s really where my heart is. Over my past three years as an RA, I have always been interested in hearing about and learning about the experiences of other freshmen women RAs.
Do you ever wonder what happens to the animals in Hawaii that have been abused, or are stray? Well, most of those animals you have seen have gone to the Hawaiian Humane Society (HHS), a charitable group that started in 1897 with a woman named Helen Kinau Wilder. She started the group with her friends by gathering resources to hire their first officer to help animals. These animals have been rescued from terrible, reprehensible conditions no creature should be in. The Hawaiian Humane Society is a great way of helping animals because they rescue animals in danger, educates the public about animals, and has charity events to help the animals get forever families and homes.
I am writing to express my interest in applying for the Sophomore of the Year Award for the University of New England. Through my experience as a second year student at the University of New England, I have always been determined to be a leader to and a supporter of my peers. Some qualities that show that I am worthy of the Sophomore of the Year Award includes: Leadership: While a student at UNE, I have dedicated most of my free time to the development of programs on campus such as UNE’s Crew Team, UNE’s Housing Staff as well as The USG Sophomore Class Representative. As a member of UNE’s Crew Team, I have encouraged 6 students who are only involved with one other club to join crew and stay active. Without a good amount of rowers, only a few of our 7 new boats would be filled.

Doing math was oddly enough her favourite part of school and writing and grammar was her least favourite part about school. Living in rural Georgia, Barbara’s family never had an actual pet but there were several stray animals that would hang around their home that she would like to claim as her own every so often. As a child Barbara claims to have been a laid back teddy bear loving girly girl, who rarely got in trouble for anything. She said that her mother’s homemade biscuits with honey or apple butter was one of her favourite foods to eat. Her type of fun consisted of playing with her teddy bear that she had gotten at a young age for Christmas and getting into her mothers “grown up” makeup and cloths and playing dress up.

When it comes to training your puppy, there are a few tips to keep in mind to help guide you through the process. By following a few key points, you can maintain consistent training and avoid letting things get ruff. If you are using the crate method for housebreaking your puppy, never leave him/her inside of the crate for more than two hours at a time. Puppies cannot control their bathroom habits yet, so make sure to let them out frequently. Your pet will soon grow to understand that he/she should go outside of the home to relieve itself and your housebreaking approach will be a success.
This program appointed me to a counselor who would check my progress in class on a weekly basis. This gave me the opportunity to ask questions regarding any subject in school. My personal counselor not only helped me to learn English, but she also helped me to become more confident in myself. She challenged me to try new things in school and to make new friends. She never doubted my abilities to succeed in school and constantly supported me.
He told me that we were only going to adopt if we can get a puppy so I can train her. I nodded in agreement but to me all dogs need a home not just puppies. We walked in to the section where they were keeping the dachshunds and I walked up and down rows of cages with dogs inside. I was very happy to hear that most of them had already been adopted. As I came up to one of the cages I looked in and at first I didn 't see any dogs.
