The First Impression

Imagine the first meeting you ever had with a student who you would be establishing a relationship with as their mentor or tutor.

Do you remember how nerve-racking and awkward it was not knowing what questions to ask and how to ask them?

I’ve worked at 3 different schools and youth centers before moving to…

Strategic Planning

Yesterday in Springfield, over 2,000 Illinoisans participated in the “We Can’t Wait” responsible budget rally. The purpose of the rally was to support efforts calling for legislators and lawmakers to approve a spending plan that would spare human services cuts to human services and provide more grant money to non-profit organizations by raising income taxes. As some of my readers can remember, I attended a…

Ash Wednesday

The Second Vatican Council (1962-65) called for the renewal of Lent, recovering its ancient baptismal character. This recovery was significantly advanced by the restoration of the catechumenate mandated by the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (1972). As Catholics have increasingly interacted with catechumens in the final stage of their preparation for Baptism, they have begun to understand Lent as a season of baptismal preparation and baptismal renewal.…

Two-Week Report #2

Four-weeks ago I started my internship at Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connections. Cabrini Connections is a non-profit organization designed to enrich and further develop the lives of students who live in low-income neighborhoods such as Cabrini Green. They do this by providing tutor/mentor programs for these students after hours, which not only provides alternate learning opportunities but keeps these students out of trouble. At my internship my job is to promote the organization further… Continue

Hi. this is project which is inserted sound effect.

Hi.. I would attach the file on the comment.

It took one week that I have inserted the sound effect. it's too complicate to explain it.

That is, there are two parts that are my project and Peter project. But when I have inserted two parts, it's messed up. I didn't find it out after all. as you see the file, you can check just Peter part Sound.

Which means I can insert the sound of my part without Peter part sound.

If you have good…

Reflections on Black History Month

February celebrates Black History Month, the shortest time of the year when our country pays extra attention to the contributions of Black Americans throughout history, yet should not this recognition be absorbed in our daily institutional education, as do most notable contributions to society, in order to be recognized by all throughout the year, and not just when the occasion deems it possible to do so? While pondering this question, let us all consider how the discrepancies in history and… Continue
