My Experience As A Medical Assistant Student Reflection

Good Essays
This summer I started at ITT Tech. I started off a medical assistant student. I was going to class on Mondays and Wednesdays. I went to class for six weeks, I learned a lot. In those six weeks I had three classes, Human Anatomy and Physiology I, Medical Terminology for Health Care, and Strategies for the Technical Professional. In anatomy and Physiology I we learned the human body using a systems approach, focusing on the integumentary system, bones and skeleton tissues, joints, and muscles, the nervous system, special senses and the endocrine system and we also had labs to complete which included dissecting. In my anatomy’s class we dissected a fetal pig. We cut open the fetal pig and seen certain part of the pigs organs. We had to determine …show more content…
He told about the classes here at BMC and how the classes were one month classes and gave me a lot of information about the school he even told me how they would even assist me on getting a job that would work around my schedule which I thought was good.
He gave a tour of the school and assured me how this would be a good school for me. Warren set me up to get my paper work done with financial aid with Tiffany a financial aid rep . I started BMC in September, my first class was a professional development, a class that was very motivational and encouraging taught by Mrs. Vogal , she made me think about a life and how I can be whatever I want and that how we need to take time out and enjoy life sometimes.
My second class was Fundamentals of English with Mrs. Selby which was good class taught me things I needed to refresh on since I been out of for eighteen years. This class reminded of such things as were to put commas, apsotrophes, semicolons, colons and how to use quotations. We also learned how to write different types of essays. It was sometimes overwhelming at times because I had so much going on with my kids and being a single parent alone can sometimes be stressing at times but that’s my life. I just continue to pray and stay around positive and encouraging

I also told a friend about BMC. I told him how this school was very encouraging and how he should too come up to BMC and see if this would be a good school for him to attend. He started here in October of 2014. He told how Mrs. Vogal was very inspiring person and how he wants to start an organization for young teenagers that have no one in their life to encourage them. I think glad I started here at BMC. My teachers have been great so far. I like how we have breakout sessions once a month. These are 30 minute sessions in which we a have our counselor over our program of study come and talk to us to see how we are doing in our classes and to give updates on what’s going in our school and that if we ever have any kind of problems or concerns to come and talk to them. I will have completed my program of study in the spring of 2016 with an associate degree in business of applied

    They met with us in the beginning weekly, and then after December, bi-weekly. Anytime we had questions they were available to answer. These ladies came and observed our classes, provided professional developments, and helped us to work with the kids, if that is what we needed. It was a great experience to have that type of support. During our second year they still met with us once a month.…

    Other parents simply asked me to play with their children using only English so that they could pick up new words. While others, asked me to proof-read their child’s English homework and papers. Because of my native English speaking ability, I was asked almost weekly to take on new students by the time I was in High School. I usually limited myself to just a few sessions a week because I was so busy. Sometimes it felt like hard work, but most of the time I really enjoyed teaching and…

    Working with them is very different from the age that actually want to teach, but working with them has given me so much guidance into a portion of what I would be having to do as a high school teacher. At my current job, I have to make a weekly curriculum for day to day activities. We have parent teacher conferences twice a year and I have to track the children on their developmental milestones. I love working with the kids and I love seeing them get excited to learn new things every day. I believe in myself and I believe that everything that I have overcame will help me to be the best student that I can be at SUNY Empire State…

    He has taught us a lot of skills and has been very supportive from the beginning. My parents have always made sure we knew that they were there for us no matter what. He, like my mom, advocated for me to go to the new high school for a year or two to try it out and see if I liked it. He knew in the long run that it would be good challenge for me, at the time I was delusional and was not aware of the benefits of this choice. Like any teenager, I didn 't want to go through with this, but I trusted my dad and ended up going to the school for the full four years.…

    Answer 4: “I give every student a job which that student must apply for. Students can apply for up to two jobs and if they don’t get their first choice they get the second one, if they have the best application for it. A great tool that helps me with classroom management is Class Dojo it is an amazing tool to keep in touch with parents about how the student is doing, and post reminders for student and parents as well as pictures of the classroom. Students can use Dojo points they have earned for prizes and privileges for good behavior throughout the week.” Question 5: Describe your worst and best lesson you have taught and what you have learned from it? Answer 5: “Last year with math I felt like I didn’t explain things well to my students, learning how to word things for my 1st grade students in math was particularly hard for me because as an adult adding is second nature.…

    I am also working on getting a minor in special education because it is something I love learning about and that knowledge will be extremely helpful in my future career as a Speech Pathologist. Throughout my essay, I would like to explain my background and experiences I have had with individuals with special needs, as well as discuss my thoughts and beliefs I have accumulated throughout my years of experience. My mother is a special education teacher at the same school I attending from preschool to high school graduation. She enrolled me into the special education pre-school at Central Cass and I was a peer model there for two years before moving onto kindergarten. I obviously don’t remember those days and I also don’t ever remember a “first experience” with someone with special needs.…

    In 2012 I started substitute teaching during breaks from college and during the semester when I was available. I am overjoyed when I receive a phone call from the high or middle school about a substitute teaching opportunity. I thoroughly like helping students, teaching lesson plans and being in a school setting. Although I do believe this passion for teaching and the skills I have learned as a substitute will translate over to when I am a professional teacher, there are many differences between the two.…

    And I attribute that love of school to minarets. A place for students to grow, find themselves and to find their place in the world. Within the first few weeks of my last year of high school, I was hospitalized. I was terrified that this would affect my grades and my involvement in school, but all my teachers worked with me. They emailed me, called me, and made sure I understood the assignments while giving me a bit of extra time to finish them.…
