Leadership Reflection Paper: La Russa
One of the things I do to prepare myself each week for my classes is to stay connected to the class. I use and check my student account regularly to make sure I don’t miss anything. My student account is my main source of information, it will help me so I don’t miss any important dates, deadlines or any posted information.

At the end of the two weeks I would have to go over all of the data and examine everything that they ate.
