I hope that all the students I tutored will continue to improve academically. While tutoring was challenging and required patience, it was a valuable rewarding experience. Now that I’m in highschool, I haven’t been able to tutor as much but I most definitely won 't forget the passion for sharing my love for learning and helping
Also by being organized with school work and my personal life. In personal behavior I remind myself to try my best and not to give up because it will not be any ones else fault but my own. In role modeling I have tried and will even try better to be a role model for those younger and older than me so they can say I admire you you are an inspiring living being. I have shown Integrity: In words such as not telling lies nor to my family, friends, and teachers. In actions such as always looking someone to their eyes when they are talking or when I am talking I always do because not only does it show respect but it also lets me focus on the person.
Looking back at all the volunteer opportunites I take advantage of, Operation Santa will have a special place in my heart because of the joy the activity brings me. Ultimately, activities with the same orientation have inspired me to make a positive impact on my community in the future. Operation Santa has been a teaching tool towards the important ideal I learned at a young age, "Help others even though they may not be able to help you." Moreover, interacting with individuals who are not as fortunate as I am has humbled and motivated me to become the best person I can be in order to help other hapless members of my community. I believe this project is one of the most rewarding activities any volunteer can participate in.
Walking through my elementary school years was not an easy task, but luckily I had some great people to help me along the way. I would like to dedicate my bare book to every individual who has been by me throughout this incredible journey. First, i would like to thank my teachers who have supported me through thick and thin. My teachers have taught me so much more than just academics, they have taught me how to conquer situations and bring the best out of me. I want to thank my kindergarten teachers first, Mrs. Jeambert and Mrs.Walker.
Professional Philosophy Regarding ECEC Pedagogy: How Learning Happens Zubaida Abubaker My philosophy related to my profession is deeply inspired and rooted in my belief in each child’s potential. I believe that every child is an abled body, and the expectations we attached with them usually leads to a self fulfilling prophecy. If I will believe a child is able, I will work hard to make it possible, but if my expectations are otherwise, the result will prove it too. I have spent a substantial part of my life taking care of children around me as well as my own children. I believe that children are our best teachers who made us aware of our own potentials and vulnerabilities.
Based off assisting these past populations, I have learned that I enjoy getting to know people, I exhibit excellent empathy to any difficult situation an individual is confronting me about, and I can be creative with my work in regards to using my creative abilities. However, my finest strength would be listening and asking questions that help the individual figure out the situation and for me to get to know the individual better. When working with children, I can be creative in terms of keeping the child’s attention such as arts and crafts, physical activities, and understanding their cognitive/behavioral development. As for working with adolescences and adults, people have said I am very approachable and nonjudgmental. I do utilize this quality
At this school, I observed an ASHA-certified speech-language pathologist for nearly fifty hours. During this time, I observed treatment and evaluation sessions with a diverse group of students in kindergarten through fifth grade, even leading therapy for several of these sessions. Students I met experienced Down syndrome, autism, childhood apraxia of speech, language disorders, articulation disorders, and fluency disorders. Many of these students reminded me of my brother, reinforcing my desire to make a difference in their world. This experience showed me how to successfully implement treatment and opened my eyes to a setting where I would love to work.
I also liked this assessment, because it was more through compared to the other assessments I found. The assessment touched on all the areas in a child’s life that would suggest that they needed a counseling service, or was in need of crisis intervention. When completing this assessment for my client, I recognized that this assessment would be extremely helpful for a counselor, or therapist. I tried to not make my client too complex, but for a client who in crisis this would be a quick, and efficient tool to use to quickly get through the explanation stage, and to the healing stage of the
I love working with kids though, so my best option will be child development, if I decide to change my pathway. I think that the most difficult aspect about teaching is making sure that you want to help every students need. I believe that it can be overcome; it will just take a lot of hard work to make sure that every student gets the help they need. I think with a lot of support from family and friends and being able to talk to
I completed my practicum experience at Ellen Hopkins Elementary in Moorhead in a second-grade classroom. Mr. Larson was my cooperating teacher and he taught me more about teaching and relations to students than I think he realizes. The students also taught me every single day new ways to see certain concepts and positive ways to react in situations. I think Mr. Larson was an excellent cooperating teacher who helped me realize and see a classroom through the eyes of a teacher. My favorite component of the classroom was being able to build on what we were learning and discovering in ED 205 and see it first hand in the classroom by making connections between our readings from Ayers into seeing how the readings take place in a real-life context.
He was the guidance counselor of her older son who attended Salesian High School. The phrase it’s a small world is very true, as a school counselor you will meet people, it is key to always treat each student fair, be kind and professional. You never know when, paths may meet
The pillar of scholarship has taught me to appreciate the people in these groups as they guided me towards my academic goals. Sharing their advice, they have taught me to take pride in my work and my dedication to getting things done. I not only learned to keep my grades high, but I enjoyed the work and kept enriching my knowledge. Attending the National Honor Society and other groups allow me to set priorities, a skill that gives me the ability to manage my time. Managing my time is what helped me maintain my high GPA, as it was always my top
Every moment is a memorable part of the journey of life. I have always appreciated the value of giving to others because I believe that just being able to lend a hand to others, no matter how trivial it may be, is what makes life worth living. However, my desire to help people started when I began working with children as a teacher’s assistant. It would instill in me a lesson that I would never forget. As my first step at trying something different, in the beginning I was tense, unsure of what to do.
I think that’s the key to a truly successful lesson: to be a role model for the kids, to actually show them that it is possible to lead a happy life without tangling with the harmful substances that they see glorified in the media. It feels good to show them what proper behavior is, and it not only benefited the kids but also me; as having twenty five pairs of small eyes staring at me forced me to hold myself to a higher standard. I not only helped the students grow, but also the program, offering my ideas and support to update and fine tune the lesson
For example in the workforce if i am communicative to customers they will most likely feel welcomed and appreciated. If i am commutative with my family they can understand me and help me if i need any help. I now know what my strengths are and I am going to keep them up. Although I also have weaknesses I now know how to strengthen them in order to progress in life. The discovery wheel has help me understand myself better and make me certain of what kind of student I am.
