When I picked out my classes last spring for junior year, I struggled immensely on whether or not to sign up for advanced placement language and composition. I already had signed up for four other advanced placement courses, so by no means would I have been slacking if I defaulted to enroll in honors English in lieu of advanced placement. In addition, writing does not come easily for me either; I feel like I am in a constant state of writers block. Grammar also has a way of tripping me up too. When I sat down to think about my goals for the year, and then on, my perspective evolved though.
The classes I am taking this summer will be last required classes before I start my internship with UAF School of Education this fall. I pride myself of being hardworking student and because of this I am starting my internship one year than what was previously estimated. Financial difficulties will make it extremely hard for me to afford taking two classes during the UAF Summer Session. I have shown that I am dedicated student who will takes her college classes very seriously. I started my college career almost sixteen years ago, and returned several years ago to finish what I had started.
The associates degree at a two year community college is becoming the newest way to combat rising college costs. Students are no longer seeing enrollment as a freshman in a four year college as the only path to a degree. The stigma attached to attending community college has declined while at the same time the attitude towards the cost of attending a four year school has been one of growing disdain. My dad has attended the Bethel Park High School graduation for the last twenty-five years and he said he has noticed an obvious increase in the number of students listing Community College of Allegheny County for their post high school plans in the graduation program. The cost per year at a community college makes it an attractive option to limit the aggregate cost of a four year degree.
Through the educational experiences I receive from the MSW program I plan to contribute a professional, eager, and hardworking student in pursuit of a higher education. The educational experiences I received through my BSW program opened me up the scope of social work and provided me with the basic needs of a generalist social worker practicing in any field. The program was very student-centered to all my educational needs and this trait passed through me as I became engaged in an active community. I too made sure that each client and their problem were the center of my focus. When I started practicing my skills, through a field placement, my goal was to make people aware of a social and/or economic problem that deserved some type of justice.
Growing up in an unfortunate family, I have learned to take my education seriously and apply for organizations to serve as an inspiration. My interest in working with people who have a similar mindset will assist me in making a difference for the school and the community. With my future as a motivation, applying for NHS will definitely give me the proper knowledge and experience that no other organization will. Alongside those reasons, I will work correctly and try my best in order to become a member of
Hearing his passion for this school is definitely something to be both amazed at and inspired by. I realized that being a part of the Wentworth Institute of Technology community is not only about using the abundant resources to better yourself, but it is also to promote growth in others by using those same resources. When choosing an action that will have any impact on another member of the Wentworth community, I need to take their account into consideration. By being a part of a community, I need to learn to help others, as well as help
I want to show my students that they can get a job and/or go to college. These are all my goals and my roles that I want to contribute as a teacher. It is my responsibility to prepare all my students for a successful transition into adulthood. All of my goals that I stated can benefit my students and lead them into a brighter
I have jumped obstacles and I will continue to thrive for success. By helping students with their academic goals, I will be able to provide students the opportunities that were given to me by different counselors. I want to be the change agent for all the forthcoming students that want to access an education and need the encouragement to strive for
The standard that I need to work on is Standard #5: Teachers continuously improve their professional practice, model lifelong learning, and exhibit leadership in their schools and professional community by promoting and demonstrating the effective use of digital tools and resources. This standard is something I will always be working on. Learning the new technology and where to find it and use it is key to being successful in the future as a teacher. Technology is all around us and knowing about the newest technology is a necessity. The standard I feel I have mastered is Standard #2: Teachers design, develop, and evaluate authentic learning experiences and assessments incorporating contemporary tools and resources to maximize content and learning in context and to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes identified in the ISTE-S. During this class I have really shown improvement on this standard.
I believe our students are our future. Each of our students has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. In fact the teacher has the opportunity to touch the future of every student. So, in order to accomplish that, our mission is to make the environment of the student conducive to learn. Based on what I experienced, the big responsibility when it comes to teaching is to motivate them into actively participate in every lesson.
