End of Course Reflection Regina Browning EXP105 Personal Dimensions of Education Steve Dashiell September 29, 2014 End of Course Reflection When I first started this course, my definition of learning was the way we take in and process information. After completing this course I would have to add to that definition. I would now explain learning as the way we take in, process and respond to information and stimuli. This course has taught me a lot about myself and the way I learn. I have learned about my Learning Patterns and how to use them in a way that is not only beneficial to my success as a student, but in the tasks of everyday life.
Three Reason I Decided to Return to School Kevin Day Gen/200 February 21, 2014 Carol Amato Three reasons I decided to return to school I thought I should return to school to better my career, gain more knowledge, and be more self-sufficient. I would better my career by going into the field of Kinesiology, which is the movement of the human body. This is a very broad field that goes into so many different directions.

MISSION STATEMENT After studying and researching the various methods of teachings and education systems that exists throughout the globe, I do have to admit that if I had the authority and influence I would probably change the way the schools are currently managed in the twenty-first century. In my opinion, my “Ideal School” would be an independent school that educates children from Kindergarten through Eighth grade. In addition, I will incorporate a classroom for toddlers and infants for parents who do not have the luxury to spend time with their children on a full-time basis. In this school I will try to provide challenging programs for all grade levels. The school will offer classes in a variety of languages that parents can choose from for their child to learn either another language and/or their native language as well as English, of course; music, literature, match, social sciences, art (such as drawing, sculpting, oil and water painting) will be part of the curriculum as well.
What led to my Interest in Social Work? Upon beginning my journey back to school I explored a couple of curriculums trying to decide which would be the best fit for my personality. Finally, I assessed the situation, and I knew I wanted to do something rewarding. At the peak of preparing my acceptance papers for the Heath Science major. I began to research the social work profession.
From a parent of a Head Start student to a teacher of the Head Start program I can clearly say that Head Start has made a difference in my family life.

The teacher knows how to build and implement a plan for professional growth directly aligned with his/her needs as a growing professional using feedback from teacher evaluations and observations, data on learner performance, and school- and system-wide priorities.

The mission was to visit Eastfield College Children Laboratory to observe, reflect to a lesson plan and the material and props

Who and what we are can be determined by the morals and values which were taught to us as children. Children have rights as well as needs. One of these rights is the right to an education. It is the duty of the parent to ensure that the child is enrolled and attends school, but, it is the job of the teacher to encourage or motivate the child to learn and be educated. By realizing how essential, children are to our future and encountering some critical events during my adolescence and early adulthood, I have an awakening desire to become a teacher.
2200 words This assignment will begin with a brief understanding of how reflective practice can be used to benefit teaching and learning, if indeed it does at all. It will then progress through reflections on both personal and professional growth, recounting my learning journey by reference to my placement in a Teach First school. My reflections will focus on proactive measures to classroom behaviour in order to improve my classroom management. The introduction of the concept of 'reflective practice' by Donald Schon (1987), was based on the assumption that acquiring skills associated with reflective practice should lead student teachers toward becoming more effective practitioners (Burn et al, 2003). Many authors (Kolb, 1984; Evans, 1991; Ferraro, 2000) have provided their varying opinions about the meaning of the term.
