How am I growing in my own awareness of my strengths and weaknesses?

What challenges have I been through?

In what ways have I started new challenges?

In what ways have I developed new skills?

In what ways have I shown perseverance and commitment to my activities?

After having struggled early on with lots of the work that I was given by Mrs Hauser, i learned quickly that the jobs needed to be done to keep everything running smoothly. Understanding the incredible importance of the jobs in the library really helped me to keep going and finish what i started. While grading papers for Senorita Wilson i also found that her schedule was dependent on me recording grades on time. The level of responsibility that i took on when i started volunteering is what kept me going.

In what ways have I worked collaboratively?

I have worked with all the other aides in the library and Mrs Hauser to get all of our jobs done in the most efficient way possible. By getting our jobs done faster and more effectively we can focus on other issues in the library. These other issues include repairing books and following up on fines. I learned that it is critical to the success of the library to effectively work with the other aides so that we can keep the library running well.

In what ways have I been engaged in issues with global importance?

What are the ethical or moral implications of what I’m doing and learning?

Throughout the school year, I helped out in the library by decorating the room and building anything that needed to be built and anything like that. I spent most of my time helping out during lunch or sometimes after school to make sure that everything Mrs Hauser wanted was done the way she wanted it to be done. After having spent all this time in the library I understood that Mrs Hauser wasn’t just decorating the library to be festive, she was doing it to create a comfortable environment that promoted learning. I realized that i wasn’t just putting up decorations, i was creating a welcoming place for anyone to go and be comfortable while doing homework or studying. I’ve learned to appreciate everything that Mrs Hauser does so much more now that I’ve worked in there for a while.
