  • Reflective Essay: Community And Community Connections

    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.

    This week, I was able to be more involved in the actual teaching within the classroom. Last week, I monitored student behavior a lot and made sure that everyone was on task when they were supposed to be. However, this week I taught morning meeting and skills block. During morning meeting, we would listen to the daily announcements on the overhead, then I would call everyone down to the carpet to sit in a circle. We began each day with a friendly greeting. This week it was “Brown Bear…

  • Personal Narrative: A Career In Fitness

    enjoying the feeling. How did this happen? How did the girl, who had never set foot into a gym, end up training for a half marathon? I was never the most athletic person. To be fair, I always enjoyed leisurely exercise, like going on a hike on the weekends, or canoeing at my cottage, but never came close to a “jock”. So when I started to consider a degree in kinesiology, it was understandable that I was met with some confusion. “Do you even play sports?” “How are you going to fit in with people…

  • Blackness In Pop Culture

    But what does seem new is that the stigma attached to rappers and their sometimes unwanted endorsements has faded. I wonder if this has more to do with with the marketing power of these musicians, now that fashion has become such a big business, than a genuine appreciation of their taste. One needs only to be reminded of those recent incidents of racial profiling—for instance, when two black youths were accosted by the police for legally and soundly buying fashion goods at a prestigious…
