    The theme that stood out to me this week was that of community and community connections. In this commentary I will first I will talk about the hindrances that face teachers that are not native to small town communities. I will also address the problems of partnering with colleges and universities while being in a rural setting. Last I will address the idea of sharing personal histories helping student connect to each other through their similarities and differences. This week’s topic of community connections has been a difficult one for me. Growing up I never had roots to one place. I moved all over the state of Iowa never living anywhere more than five years, and never in an ‘urban’ area. As a teaching professional I have only lived in this community for three years, and as in most small Iowa towns to have any influence to do anything including in the school system, you have to be one of three types of people. One, born in the community and move back as a professional. Two, your grandparents were from the community and still live here, or three, you are married with kids and have made friends with an influential native of the community. Without one of these three factors, there is little chance of getting any community by in to have elders of the community come and share the stories of…

    Community Contradictions

    • 681 Words
    • 3 Pages

    I tend to think that community is a kind of contradictory state. To exist within one an individual must give of themselves and take parts of the Other with them. It’s a state of back and forth, a contradictory experience that relies on the self and the selves finding some sort of middle ground. All communities have their contradictions, their between-states and undersides, their rights and lefts, their arguments and disagreements, their pocket communities and outsiders, and their core principles…

    Beloved Community If you open your eyes and take a closer look at the small town of Alpena, you can see it’s a great place to be born and raised in. I’m grateful to live here because there isn’t much crime here and most of the people living here are kind. Alpena could use more activities for the youth though. I know as a teenager that I’d like to have more things to do with my friends. Volunteers, fundraising, and grants could help achieve in bringing more things to do for not only children,…

    School, Home and Community Partnerships It seems that everybody agrees that it is important to form strong partnerships between schools, homes and their communities, but there is a decided lack of information about how to go about achieving that goal. In 2010, President Obama signed the executive order, White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics which includes provisions for strengthening home and community partnerships with schools. The President pointed out that only…

    • 5 Pages

    Regardless if a community is a sports team, a religious group, or American society, communities give their members some set of perks. These are opportunities the members would not ordinarily receive on their own. Although some opportunities are for the benefit of their members, some opportunities extend outside their population into other communities. Not only are there potential opportunities to gain knowledge and experience when two or more communities begin to intertwine, there is also a…

    I have participated in several community service projects including: Serving at the Banquet, Kids Against Hunger, Mission Trips to New York City and Detroit and assisting a first grade classroom. Through these projects, I have been able to serve those in the Sioux Falls community and abroad. Serving at the Banquet allows the homeless and hungry of Sioux Falls to come and eat a warm meal.
