If I had never taken this course I would probably be lost and needing a lot of help to guide me through college and my personal

Everyone didn’t like to do their job, thanks to the professors of the course we were still able to get our assignments done. Team projects have shown me how to step up and be a leader. During the team projects I have learned how to work with others and meet them where they are at. The projects were a push and sort of a challenge, it was great to have the other classmates support and help with assignment.

    I personally know can be overwhelming to walk in to a big classroom full of unfamiliar bones, models, and equipment but I enjoyed helping them get comfortable and learning from the classroom. I did tutor over the distance system and although it took a while it was nice to learn how to use the computer, camera and microphone. I got to use those new skills in the video classes I was enrolled in this semester when no one knew how to get it to work. Watching the students learn new skills and become independent went very well. I really enjoyed showing the students studying skills and techniques.…

    Which is why I have a newfound respect for what professors do. It is a lot of hard work and can also be very frustrating at times. I was also able to look within myself and figure out the type of leader I consider myself to be. If it changes who knows but right now I feel like I have figured out the type of leader that I am. Overall a very good experience and it strengthened my desire to go back to school and get a teaching degree because now I have something to base it off of instead of going in blind, and I really liked…

    The conference was by far the best experience this semester because of the wonderful people I met and the memories I made there and it may not have been possible without your help. The skills I learned in class, I applied and I had a wonderful time. I also learned the importance of being focused on the look of my documents. In every project I did for all my other classes I tried to make sure that the margins were correct and that it looked presentable. I learned that a lot of points can be given for having something that looks good.…

    My research skills grew through this trip provided by Mrs. Mohr. When I first heard about the trip, I wasn’t so interested because I thought all colleges were the same, but my friends then told me to give it a try and that I might end up liking one of the schools, which did end up happening. One extremely helpful thing I learned was that always try to visit the campus first, before applying because you might get accepted and eventually hate it. I have also learned to always look at the majors, programs, activities, etc a school has. I believe this trip has helped me determine how I will research the school and help me decide whether or not I will apply there.…

    During this semester I personally contributed to my overall success in the PTAP 2310 class by studying consistently and coming prepared to class. I found that having previously read the chapter and notes, I was able to further understand what Dr. Amite was teaching. This also proved to be beneficial if I had trouble understanding a portion of the chapter I could come with questions. I entered this class knowing that my performance and understanding of the information relied heavily on my entrance into the PTA program. Becoming a PTA is so important to me that it kept me driven to have a complete understanding of the material, even when it was most difficult.…

    Many of the chapters included tips on studying, managing your time and life, and understanding the concepts of college. If it wasn’t for these tips I probably would’ve been extremely unprepared for my dual credit classes in the Fall.

    It gives people a good foundation of understanding to not only interact with others but truly know how the human grows throughout the lifespan.

    English 219 was my first college level English course, and through attending and completing all of the assignments I have learned many skills that I believe will greatly help me in my future courses in college. Next semester I am enrolled in English 220, and after having taken this course I feel substantially better about continuing on with English courses at a college level. It has helped me to become more confident in my writing skills and provided me with an excellent basis for me to continue on with next semester, and throughout the rest of my schooling experience. Throughout this class I have learned many things, but perhaps the most important is the steps to writing an essay, and the planning options. Before English 219 I often did not…
