Boy, was I surprised when I walked in and there was a new teacher, Mrs. Padilla. This is when the “Road of Trials” began. From the very first day she had stressed about the importance of the AP test.

As the year went on, I got accustomed to her teaching style
In undergrad I was the membership coordinator for a university club called Best Buddies for two years. In case you are unfamiliar with this organization, Best Buddies is a student-run campus club that pairs individuals with disabilities (primarily those with mental deficits) with college students to integrate them into a community outside of their home setting. As the membership coordinator I was in charge of keeping track of all college student members, as well as the “Buddies” who attended events with parents, healthcare aids, or through connections with Goodwill. I was required to make sure and help individuals schedule and organize outings with their assigned Buddy, make sure Buddies were treated appropriately by college members, and plan
During my undergraduate career, I was employed two times while going to school. The first time, I was employed as a freshman. Having had financial difficulties within my family, I felt that it was necessary for me to work if I wanted to enjoy more of the college experience, such as going out to eat with friends and exploring the downtown scene. As I was walking to class one day, I was approached and asked if I wanted to be a model for Abercrombie and Fitch. Naturally, I was curious about the opportunity and so I was inclined to say yes.

Group Formation, Tuckman’s Model Megan, MO, and I worked this semester towards addressing the housing needs of young adults who identify as transgender. In the forming stage, we focused heavily on getting to know each other and determining the focus of our assignments.

This included setting and sticking to guidelines, being open with communication and
During the semester I learned numerous techniques inside of my Issues of Delivery and System course that assisted with my success inside of my practicum. In a regular week interning at the Boys & Girls Club, I attend staff meetings, review emergency procedures, help the students with their homework, facilitate group activities, and support the student’s emotional and social needs.

When taking this class as a college undergrad you have an option to go to conferences. This class also allows you at least one week of revision for your final version. I recommend signing up for conferences for suggestion on how your paper can be improved. Revisions can be used to give you an idea of how you can improve your essay. I have always liked the idea of someone telling me what my essay needs to push it towards greatness.

After completing this activity, Vanessa was able to explain why it is important to fill out forms similar to the Voucher Check Request Form to their entirety and teach me the process for providing the needs of clients within the DSS agency. Another activity I had the opportunity of completing was sorting case files in the file room. Although this was an activity I repeated several times in the Fall 2016 semester, I noticed the difference in how both agencies handled their caseloads and the clients they serve. Completing this activity helped in improving my competency skill 3. This skill requires social workers to be able to Analyze models of assessment, prevention, intervention, and evaluation utilizes appropriate definitions and terminology.

I belong to many task and relationship groups currently. However, a few stick out above the rest. For starters, Upward Bound is a task group that I consider to be problem-solving.

We have gone through, as the DeVito text would define it, a set of procedural rules to follow to achieve success.
