This is a reflection on continuing professional and personal development in practice. This reflection is to allow me to improve profeesionally with supportive, evidence based literature and to enable me to evaluate the impact my professional behaviour as a student and future midwife. My learning need is to focus on the importance of professional behaviour when on placement and working with women, their families and members of the multi-disciplinary team (MDT).
I conducted my observations at Lockport Middle School. Lockport Middle School is currently ranked an A school from the Louisiana Department of Education. Science lessons were observed in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade over the course of a two week period.
Even though some teacher stood out, many had no idea what they were doing. Everything from class management to even the intention of teaching were rarely present. The ratio of kids to students was overwhelming. Something that we have learned doesn’t help the teacher focus on the individual needs of the students, nor the student learn.
The first standard used in this unit was K.NS.4. This standard requires the students to understand how to count different objects, regardless of the pattern and then recognize the number they said last is the number of objects. This standard also directly relates to the common core standards K.CC.B.4.A-C. During this unit, students were asked to do this during the initial baseline test and then on day 1. Students were asked to count objects in a scattered pattern and then count objects in a ten frame. At the end of day 1 students showed improvement in their test scores and showed an understanding of the Indiana standard and the common core standard.
Five members of the Carrollton FFA Chapter were selected to attend FFA Leadership Camp, July 26-29. 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. As individual groups, they completed a challenge course, competed in “Ag olympics,” and participated in various activities to acquire new skills. Campers listened to speeches by keynote speakers, Kade Hill and Dr. David Mouser, which focused on paying attention and impacting others. Throughout the week they learned to work as a team, be an authentic leader, build character, communication, and to make a difference in our chapters and communities. Leadership
Growing up in South Los Angeles I’ve had to deal with the stereotypes that we are all Cholos and Cholas, that we smoke, steal, gang-bang or that we are all just plain ignorant individuals that are hardly seemed destined for success, but not everyone here fits these stereotypes. I am nothing like that. I was fortunate enough to have a strong independent working mother who has paved the way for me to pursue my dreams, as a result, I have already surpassed my mother in academia by graduating high school, but I did not stop there, I have continued to pursue my education with the hopes of ultimately obtaining a masters degree in college counseling. Although I am proud to be raised in this tough neighborhood, I knew that life had more to offer than
Throughout my time, so far, working with Miss. Giannotti’s class at the elementary school, I have been given a wide range of jobs and responsibilities. I’ve been given tasks that range anywhere from interacting with the children, such as leading in games and reading stories, to things that are inherently teacher-like responsibilities, such as making copies and creating a bulletin board. Of the things I’ve done in the time I’ve been with my class so far, many of them I’ve enjoyed, even, to my surprise, the seemingly mundane jobs. I love interacting with the kids. One of my favorite, and most common, jobs is to sit at a yellow table in the corner and help the students as they come to me with questions. This allows me to spend time with them and
During this unit we learned about our individuality and how it individual develop an in our society. We were also taught about how people are treated in our culture based on their life styles. In this unit we spoke about many different things such as; power, privilege and what social justice advocates are. Understanding these things will help you become a better peer educator, which is why we were taught them. These understand what these things are don’t just help us with peer educating, it helps us understand our society as well.
I’ve spent the past two years volunteering with the Hamilton District school board working in the classroom children. Last year I worked with grade one class and this year I have worked with the grade 6 students. My role each year has been to work with the students need extra help an extra time to complete their work. When I have found is that although these students can’t keep up in the regular classroom with their peers, when given the extra time and support their thought process and ideas bloom in their ideas and the successful side of them shows through. I don’t particularly enjoy classroom work; I certainly do enjoy seeing the look of pride and success on a child’s face when they understand something that they previously didn’t. I also enjoy the opportunity to give these children individual one-on-one attention knowing that for some this might be the most one-on-one attention again all day. I do my best to carry this lesson into my clinical practice where I try not to get caught up in the rush of my day, but rather to slow it down and give each patient the individual care and focus that they require so that they’re not only well
As a single mother who has confronted poverty, I am committed to reforming community intervention and advocacy practices. I have a particular interest in improving the accessibility and funding of offering all services under one umbrella within orphanages’. As a result of my own experiences, I am familiar with the despair and frustration endemic to individuals struggling to survive. I am convinced that increasing individuals' access to services that are representative of a community showing family resemblance can make the difference between despondency and hope. I am applying for my masters in social work so that I can pursue my life-mission: to establish successful orphanages’ that present a family resemblance with umbrella services across
I believe children grow and learn through their personal experiences and through environmental interactions, their personality is shaped. My personal goal is to challenge students and watch them grow and achieve the most with their capabilities. I believe every child is unique and develop differently, they have varying personalities, they possess different strengths, therefore, require different types of support to meet their individual needs. As the work of Maria Montessori demonstrates the importance of individuality and independence in learning, “Only through freedom and environmental experience is it practically possible for human development to occur" (Montessori, 1949).
One of the unique aspects of the Department of Child Development and Family Relations is that many of the department’s large core courses offer teaching assistant opportunities to undergraduate students. Teaching assistant opportunities are valuable for undergraduate students to decide whether to apply as a graduate teaching position, great addition to a resume, and for a letter of recommendation. From my teaching assistant experience, I was able to fully grasp the concepts of middle childhood development, form a new appreciation for professors and teaching assistants, and reflect on myself as a student. In addition, I had the opportunity to strengthen several essential skills such as organizational skills, leadership skills, and communication
Over the past one and half month, the class of PDE 502 (Counselling and Career Education) has taught me some major lessons for life in dealing with the clients in response to their emotional needs. The role of a counsellor is not unlike that of a friend where by it is nurtured by being in each other’s company, talking over everyday issues and sharing feelings. However, what sets a counsellor apart is their experience and the ability to apply counselling theories and techniques to assist people in gaining awareness, insight and explore ways of solving their own issues.
