The Importance Of Working From Home

Looks like everyone is enjoying his or her placements! I’ve been enjoying mine, though I had a minor setback. I got sick again ☹. I was just sick for 3 weeks right before the school year started so I didn’t think I’d get sick so soon. My concern was missing placement and getting my LSS sick, I using her computer and we work in a very small space. My dilemma was taking the day off completely or working offsite. I’ve been working on my market report since I started at the AN. It’s proven to be more time consuming than I thought so the faster I complete it, the sooner I can work on a new project! I informed my LSS that I would be happy to work on the report from home. She agreed and emailed it to me. I’ve been encouraged to take my time when conducting …show more content…
This assignment has been on hold since this past June because they did not have time to delegate it. Working at home allowed me to work independently and be self-reliable. Furthermore, working offsite allows me to simultaneously blog about my experiences at the same time. I’m able to record all of my thoughts instantaneously. Rather than simply reflecting afterwards, I have the opportunity to blog during my placement. My LSS gave me a week or so to get the report done. I emailed it to her earlier today. I’m very pleased I completed it. I probably spent around 15 hours this week researching, editing, and finalizing it. I made so many graphs and maps I lost count haha. Right now it 's a little over 20 pages, but I might add more information to it tomorrow at placement when my LSS and I go over …show more content…
They set out an activity where students practice 3 quantitative research methods including, surveys, content analysis, and experiments. I like that the article wasn’t merely an explanatory of how to perform research methods. Unfortunately, we can’t participate in the activity as readers but students definitely learn better if they can practice it first-hand. If we learn the distinction between each method, we can appropriate them accordingly. The topic for the activity was people’s attitudes toward aging (Candall and Busselle, 2009). Students categorized adverts according to the product advertisement in Elle (young adults), People (neutral), and Good Housekeeping (older adults). They were able to manipulate their results by using subtle variations to the following questions: “By the time one reaches 60, most of the fun of life is over” and “One’s retirement years can be the best years of one’s life” (Candall and Busselle, 2009, p.

    As a result, I arrived to work only 1 minute in advance which caused my manager to be displeased. After work, I had a little time to complete upcoming assignments and tasks, but once again, I failed to practice the trait of order and use that time wisely. I could have used the time to study and look over my notes and finish word problems, but instead, I decided to check my phone and eat snacks until I went to…

    Although I lost money in the process of staying off work, I experienced a certain peace of mind that I did not get from commuting to work every morning. In fact, I was more stressed and tired trying to juggle working outside of the home then coming home to cook, clean, and do laundry. Throughout this process, I certainly learned a lot about myself while creating an income from home.…

    Because I live with my boyfriend I obsessively clean and I also go to work about four times a week. When I work I get home at eleven and I usually don’t have the time or energy to do homework. Something that I can do to fix this problem would be to know that I can do it and do all of my homework right after school. Not feeling so overwhelmed all the time would also be helpful because feeling so nervous and stressed all the time only slows me down. Another big problem that makes me procrastinate a lot is when I tell myself I'm going to do it later.…

    The next year I switched schools again. I was placed in another online program called Hoosier Virtual Academy a K12 program which every state has. This program was more difficult than the last and I enjoyed the challenge. I did well here as well, though I didn’t enjoy how limiting this program was. While at the other school you had all your work for a semester that had to be completed by the end of the year this school had assignments that were due by the end of the week.…

    Being able to commute everyday to MCC, while living at home, and working a part time job are all apart of the positive side of the story. On the contrary, having the ability to manage all of that free time on my hands is apart of the negative side. Living at home through college will be a different experience for myself since I lived away from home for two years of my high school days. Knowing I will be in charge of my academic life at home will be tough because of how I will be using my time. I designed my schedule at school to fit my needs with work and home life.…

    I have accepted all shifts swaps unless I have a justifiable reason not to do so e.g. working on that shift or attending a conference. I believe it is important to help colleagues with leave as it can be difficult to organise e.g. I took a shift to aid my colleague attending an expensive course for which they had already paid for but leave was not approved. • When working in Karratha as RMO, I did travel to Roebourne District Hospital (40 minute drive) and Onslow District Hospital (3 hour drive) to meet my shift requirements.…

    Because research has so many steps, it is important not to skip a step. Through research, students learn to be consistent and follow through to the end. “We teach research to make students self-reliant problem-solvers, life-long inquirers, to foster intellectual resourcefulness, for the intellectual empowerment of students” (Brian 3). Many times the student is expected to know how to do research on their own. When a project is given and children have to search for information the teacher (if teaching upper elementary) goes through some steps, but not all of the steps that it takes to do successful research.…

    1.0 Introduction People have been aware on how education is able to lead their future to betterment. However, success cannot be gained just by going to class, listen and succeed. Luckie (1998), wrote “for students to succeed, intelligence and motivation are not enough; students also need to understand and become aware of what they do while studying and how they can improve their study skills”. This shows how having study skill is vital. I am extremely agreed that study skills are important and here I will discuss on how study skills can help students in their study.…

    My objective as a teacher is to give them the tools to success in later life. Guided notes don’t just help to improve student’s learning; it helps the teacher who can use these notes as an informal assessment come test time or for review homework. Guided notes help students review previously learned information, whereas conventional notes would be difficult for a student with disabilities to discern what is important to…
