ENGL395 is my first English that focuses on my long term educational career, medicine. As the semester goes, I am sure I will learn a lot and be ready to write the grant proposal assignment. Though I am still learning, in a three years and some months ran, I feel very good about my English writing, reading and speaking skill. I started from scratch and I am now able to write essay such as like this, so it a great success for me. My instructors and mentors have had a big role for my success, so I would like to take this opportunity and say thank you very
At the end of my sophomore year, I received my first pamphlet for Franklin University. The pamphlet encompassed everything I’ve ever wanted for my education: a diverse student body, a multicultural learning experience, exchange programs, and teachings that reach beyond the classroom. Even now the pamphlet is pinned to my wall, and every time I look up to it, I think this is the place where I want to be for the next few years of my life. I’ve always been a student interested in learning about other cultures, traveling around the world, and expanding my perspective is of deep importance to me as a person. Franklin would be the ideal place for me to continue with this goal since Franklin offers those opportunities.
Carrillo Response to Paty Orozcoregalado Connection: HI Paty! I am glad to see that you brought up our 340 class. The assessments I did during the fieldwork for that class were some of my first hands on experience with using and interpreting screeners and individual studnt assessments. Discussion: I feel like this week’s reading has been great because it has helped me to further specify the uses of the many different types of tests and assessments. The collection that I have so far is; students wide screeners which seek to identify students who may be struggling, individual assessments which attempt to track development, such as a spelling inventory, pretests which assess how much student’s know before beginning a unit, formative assessments
My appointment to General McLane’s LINK Crew is an amazing opportunity to gain leadership training and utilize it within my local community. LINK Crew is a faculty-appointed organization that utilizes forty driven juniors and seniors to help transfer students and incoming freshman become orientated to the high school culture and rules. Leaders act as student mentors for new kids by helping them find their classes, teaching them small life-lessons, and introducing them to faculty, teachers, and other new students. Each year, we go through over fifteen hours of training regarding leadership, public speaking, and communication skills in order to present to new students several times a year. We also act as leaders within sports, academic, extracurricular,
The Read Across America Initiative is an annual awareness program dedicated to getting children to start reading more. The National Education Association is in charge of this Initiative. On this day, kids pick their favorite book and choose to read it or it be read to them. The program is held on Dr. Seuss’s birthday, March 2nd, as a special recognition to the children 's author who inspired children to read because of his unique books. This program is conducted by teachers and volunteers at many schools and libraries across the country.
“It taught me values”, “It taught me maturity”, “I’ve met and become friends with people in this program that I never would’ve associated with before”, “You gave us stuff we can use in the real world, like interviews, speaking skills, politics”, “Taught me self-respect and how to respect others”, “PT”, “It taught me about values and how to get along in life”, “It forces me to think about my future.” These quotes are from the Cadets of Somerset’s JROTC Program in Pennsylvania. The program needed “$65,000 re-occurring commitment by the April 12 (school board meeting) to begin the program again next year.” Rita Halverson, author of dailyamerican.com. This article is from April 08, 2011, meaning this website has been up for a rough four years and nine months. If this is what JROTC students thought about this program in 2011, approximately four years ago, imagine what those programs will look like in the future, say three or four more years. If this positive thinking continues, the experience will be much different, fresh, improved, and we will have a more positive impact, as a result.
I will provide two examples I have personally observed. This month is Spanish heritage month, and at work the elementary Spanish and music teacher have teamed together to integrate Spanish heritage and music. In music, students have been learning about Spanish musicians and learning Spanish songs. My second example is from high school, and shows that collaboration can happen at all levels and between all subjects. My junior year of high school my American History teacher and English teacher collaborated on a research project.
Visionary Leadership: I had the privileged to join in on a cabinet meeting with Mrs. Deborah Rowe, the principal from James Enochs High School in Modesto, CA. After reviewing the weekly and monthly events, she started the meeting with a book discussion on chapter ten of In Praise of American Educators by Richard DuFour. It is ingenious of the leader to apply some of the findings from the article and articulate as to how the findings can be apply to her school and her students. This is a prime example of what is being a visionary leader as she led the book discussion engages her cabinet in how to allocate the CAHSEE fund to provide support for students’ success. She then delegated this task to her Associate Principal in charge of instructional
Last year, something that really helped me out was my teacher staying afterschool the day before we had a test to review the chapter’s material and go over the answers on the study guide with the students who stay after. I was wondering if you would be able to do this, as it would be a great help and greatly appreciated. I look forward to learning all that I can in your course
Gettings and I agree that our district has been making great strides in early intervention. As a former first grade teacher Mrs. Gettings, “values early childhood literacy and education and believes it is imperative to close the gaps as early as possible.” In order for the student to be successful as possible, Mrs. Gettings believes that parent involvement is a huge contributor to a student’s success. I asked, “How are you able to get parents involved with their student’s literacy achievements?” Mrs. Gettings responded saying, “I hold Parent Information meetings in the beginning of the year to provide parents with information about the program. I am available twice a year for parent/teacher conferences, I send home report cards every marking period and send e-mails, letter or make phone calls when necessary.” As a follow-up to this response, I asked if she felt that SIP parents are more involved because of their child is in this specialized program. She responded saying, “After the Parent Information Meeting, the parents are aware of the needs of the child and how we are going to help their child.
