Job Accepted

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

I recently got a notification of a “memory” on Facebook of a status I posted three years ago thanking all those involved in my life as I found out that I was accepted into the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at the College of St. Scholastica. Just a few short days after that “memory”, I officially accepted a job offer at an orthopedic private practice physical therapy clinic in the twin cities. I am beyond ecstatic about the whole situation for many reasons. It is a large stress taken off my shoulders as I also have to finish my final internship, study and prep for the board exam, and finish my capstone project. It has also given me the opportunity once again to take a moment and appreciate all those who have helped me along the way including, family, friends, coaches, professors, staff, clinical instructors, college resources, and so many more. My time at St. Scholastica has been a very rewarding experience and it is great to see the light at the end of the tunnel getting ever-so brighter. I am very thankful to where my education has brought me and I’m excited to see what this next chapter of my life will bring!

Student Employment

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

One of the great things about the College of St. Scholastica is the opportunities for student employment on campus. As I look back over the past 6.5 years of time I spent through undergrad and grad school, I’ve held six student employment jobs. These jobs were essential in providing me with the ability to pay for books, food, gas, rent, etc. The jobs I held include student blogger, teaching assistant, statistics tutor, game management personnel, team laundry, and assistant baseball coach. Other opportunities for students include storm’s/green view dining room workers, library assistants, Help Desk staff, BWC staff, intramural referee, grounds/maintenance, admissions representative, tour guides, etc. The possibilities are endless and you need only do a bit of searching and ask. Every college student enjoys a bit of extra cash flow coming in and there is really nothing quite as convenient as on-campus employment. Not to mention the hours are pretty good and the department/employer is always understanding of student obligations. Another perk is being able to put these jobs on your resume. Be sure to look into what you can do to earn money during your time as a student at St. Scholastica.

I Got a Job!

Saturday, May 20th, 2017

This is very late news, but I got a job! I will be teaching 1st grade at DaVinci Academy of Arts & Science, starting this August. I was offered this position a few days after I interviewed (this was the school I interviewed at and was an hour late, due to a flat tire). I found out about the position through the Minnesota Education Job Fair and applied for a pre-select interview. I was then offered a second interview and after that… I was offered the job! DaVinci is a charter school in the cities. I feel very fortunate to receive an offer to teach 1st grade, because that wasn’t even originally available! I thought I was applying for 2nd grade. Additionally, my school highly values the arts, so I get to incorporate my love for art into my classroom. There will also be intersession days where I get to focus on teaching an art topic!

Preparing for the Job Fair

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Tomorrow is the Minnesota Education Job Fair! I have been nervous for the past week, getting ready for the job fair. I have been practicing interview questions, touching up my resume, and all sorts of things. My cooperating teacher let me leave right after school so I could pack and head home. That way, I could get to bed on time. I still had to print my resume, which I thought I’d get from OfficeMax. However, silly me didn’t realize how much resumes actually cost to be printed! Did anyone realize that resumes should be printed on fancy paper with cotton??

Animal Allies Internship

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

As I was searching for summer jobs, a Spring internship sort of fell into my lap. I just completed my third week as a Marketing and Special Events Intern at Animal Allies Humane Society. Right now I am working on creating and promoting material for the Walk for Animals 25th Anniversary. This fundraiser is a big part of keeping the pets at Animal Allies healthy and happy until they find their new forever homes. The projects I am working on are pivotal to the success of the event. For example, I advertise the event on different websites, social media, and to local organizations. With the guidance of my internship advisors, I created Fundraiser Kits for the participants and some fun email content to keep them motivated to meet their fundraising goals. I love the work I do and I love how many puppies and kitties are around! It’s hard not to take one home. If you’re interested in the Walk for Animals on June 3rd, sign up at www.Thewalkforanimals.com!
