Unit 8: Certification, Professional Development, and Ethics PS365: Applied Behavior Analysis II Prof: Jennifer Magnuson 2/3/2015 By Natalie Jennings There are many experiences that I have had that have led to my interest in Applied Behavior Analysis however I can’t say that they were due to my professional or educational experiences. When I was in elementary school my best friend had a sibling who was autistic. I remember always being very interested in her behavior and how she functioned in the world. I would watch her for long periods of time and wonder what caused her to behave the way she did and also how I could help her. I spent a lot of time with her since I was very close to the entire family.
Now books pile up for school. There were a lot of changes in education like the books and teaching skills but still all for the best. Kids were taught what their fathers did for a living so they could carry on the family business. Learning whatever you like is now allowed like being a doctor, dentist, and veterinarian. Choosing your career is you choice, but you can still follow in the family business.
I’m a father of two awesome sons name Cameron and Jonathon, and I have a beautiful step-daughter name Kristen. My wife is also going back to school to get her degree in education. I have been thinking a long time about going back to school and I felt that it was time to do it. I want to better my life for my kids and show them that an education is very important. I had a lot of dead end jobs that lead nowhere and felt that I should go back to school and get my degree.
In my opinion I think I like all year around in school. If kids really look at it, we get alota days out for a break. Many schools also need to come on there education because the drop out rate may come back up if it already haven’t. Many schools say they do many things to help students and they really care about the students, blah blah blah, some schools are just all talk. Schools have at least a hand full of teachers that really care about the students life after high school, some teachers make sure that there students go to college and some don’t even care what goes on when were out of there classroom.
That is why he felt that his children should be proficient readers. Ever since his kids were born he felt the need to pass his intelligence onto Scout and Jem. He believed that if he taught his kids to be as intelligent as he was, they could grow up to be successful people. Once, when Scout had started the first grade, her teacher, Ms. Caroline, told Scout that she was not allowed to read. However, Atticus encouraged reading and prompted his daughter to read every night with him.
Valuable Lessons As humans grow older and smarter there are people who teach us many significant things about life, at times it may be our mom, a neighbor or a friend. Children learn many valuable lessons that will benefit them now and in the future. Most children are shaped and formed by their community and the people that they live with. In the book “To kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee the main characters, Scout and Jem, learn many important lessons from the people that they live with. Jem and Scout live in a small rural town called Maycomb in Alabama.
Esther Nkwah History Portfolio U.S history is being taught everyday in schools, but what is U.S history? U.S is the past building up a bridge to the future. The four fathers thought about the future when they made the U.S constitution, or allowed African-American slaves to be free. They thought about the future when they allowed women to vote. History is being made everyday, and being taught everyday.

They stick with us our entire lives, we might forget some of them as we age, but they are still important.

Indiana Bible College Aaron Siler Instructor Kenny Noble English Writing Assignment One September 1, 2011 Taking the Next Step! I fell god has put a calling on my life for the youth ministry. I was able to serve under my Youth Pastor and help out any way I could while I was in High School. When it came to graduation I knew I had to go to college to higher my education but I wasn’t sure where at first. I had my calling and I knew what I wanted in life but wasn’t sure how they were supposed to fit together.
I have known that I wanted to be a Foster Carer for over 20 years, I also knew that getting the timing right would be important for everyone if it was to be successful. My mother fostered when I was younger and I suppose I knew from then that I wanted to work with young people in some way. I have been involved in hosting international students for 7 or so years, and although I’d always worked with young people I wasn’t sure if I could do it 24/7. My long-term wish is to give a young person a fresh start in life, putting a smile on their face is a plus. I have questioned my reasons for going into this for a while and discussed it with my siblings and children; then I decided that I didn’t want to regret never giving it a try.
