NACE Skill # 1 (Frist Semester) 

  • SkillCritical Thinking/Problem Solving 
  • Course: English Composition 100 
  • Reflection: 

In this course I have submitted many papers from professional essays to weekly journals about how I’m doing in the course. During my time in this course I had to analyze all the criticism I received from my peers about the paper, as well the edits I needed to make that my instructor encouraged that I make. A lot of the time in this course it was not clear to me on what I needed to fix. When I’d received feedback from my instructor it was hard to understand his comments and exactly what he wanted in his written and even verbal comments of the change I needed to make. When faced with this issue I had to look elsewhere for advice on what I needed to fix in my essays I needed to hand in come final draft. I turned to the writing center for help which ended up helping me to achieve a better grade on all the final drafts I turned in. I use the writing center now to help me with most of my essays just to make sure they will be up to the standards of each instructor.  

NACE Skill # 2 (Frist Semester) 

  • Skill: Career Management 
  • Course: Human Development 102 
  • Reflection:  

In this course we had the option to participate in ERLP’s or opt out and write essays. The ERLP’s were studies conducted by students in a 300-400 level research studies class that administered the tests to us. For the ERLP’s we had to earn 10 points in order to receive the points for the class. Each “test” was roughly 2-4 points if it was in person and 1-2 points if it was online. These tests really finalized the fact that I want to be a school psychologist when I graduate from college. I thought it was interesting how the students conducted the tests and the way the students analyzed the data that had been collected. I also found this beneficial to me in a career management setting because now I’m interest to take the class and have set goals to be able to take a 300-level psychology class in the future that will help me obtain a psychology degree. 

NACE Skill # 3 (Frist Semester) 

  • Skill: Global/Intercultural Fluency 
  • Course: Human Development 102 
  • Reflection 

In this course I have been lucky enough to be able to practice many global/intercultural fluencies throughout the course. In this course we have had numerous times where my professor brought in various speakers from a diverse spectrum of ethnic backgrounds, sexualities, races, orientations, and religions. My professor brought in these different speakers for us to have a better understanding of how people who come from different backgrounds can develop differently and have different customs than we do. I thought these experiences were very beneficial to me because of the small town I grew up in and was not exposed to as much culture as other people. To have these experiences where I get to interact with people who come from different backgrounds helps me understand the developmental process individuals go through that I may not. These experiences have also helped me earn a new respect for people of other various backgrounds, also given me insight on how to communicate respectfully. This can also help me for when in my occupation later in life to help me understand the struggles children of other backgrounds go through and how to help them cope with issues.

NACE Skill #1 (Second Semester) 

  • Skill: Digital Technology 
  • Course: COMM. SCI. 145 
  • Reflection: 

My part in the service-learning project has been to make the Facebook events and keep in contact with the hospital. So far, I have completed both tasks. With creating the Facebook events I have gained more knowledge in how to make a social media footprint for a fixed group and increase my tech skills for further down the road. Although I do have Facebook, I had never made an event before. Creating the events has been a good experience to help not only with my digital tech skills, but also has also helped me to further my marketing skills as well. Being able to practice this skill for the service project has made me feel more comfortable when dealing with technical situation that may new to me. 

NACE Skill #2 (Second Semester) 

  • Skill: Leadership 
  • Course: COMM. SCI. 205 
  • Reflection: 

In my social science statistics class, we do an in-class assignment every week on the last day we have the class for the week. In this assignment we have been paired in groups and someone is chosen to be the group leader and report out the work the group has done and how we did it all. My group works well together but I have increased my skills by keeping the group on track and always checking our answers before presenting. Another task I felt necessary was to make sure the group was always aware of how the problems were solved and how I was going to present them to the class. This task helped with leadership skills on being in a group driven task.  

NACE Skill #3 (Spring Semester) 

  • Skill: Career Management 
  • Experience: Selected to be an R.A. 
  • Reflection: 

This year I applied to be an R.A. for the current housing I’m in and was thankfully chosen to for the spot. I had to go through a 45-minute interview answering various questions about how U.W.G.B. would benefit from me being an R.A. in Roy. I had to answer many questions about the community and also how keep students involved/ doing well here on campus. The career management was present during the time of selection because I really had to dig deep into my past skills and knowledge of why I would be so beneficial to the campus. I did use various other skills from NACE to help me and even how well I work with other in my classes and effectively practice leadership here at Green Bay.

Majors Fair Reflection 

At the majors fair this Wednesday I had went and talked to two different possible major and minor in psychology and human development. I first discussed with two ladies about my occupation I want to have when I graduate. I talked to the girls about what they are going for and the actions they are taking to obtain the occupation they are invested in. One of the girls was going to be a psychologist and the other was going for what I’m going for which is to be a school psychologist for high schoolers. The girl who told me she was going for the same occupation as me gave me a lot of good insight about the major and the job itself as well. She is also going to be going to Oshkosh to finish out her profession of school psych which is exactly what I wanted to do as well and gave me lots of good insight about the program as well and how I can do more to prepare for the major I’ll be declaring. I also discussed with the heads of the psychology program about the types of classes I would have to take. I also talked to them about research classes because as a school psychologist I will be conducting and giving out many tests to students and I wanted to know if I will get to do that before graduate school. When I was done discussing I ended up finding out that I will indeed get to conduct my own research here before graduate school. I thought this experience was a lot of fun and very helpful for me getting to know more about my job later in life and how I can be most successful in that occupation.
