It can be challenging to strike a balance between school, family, owning a company and still having a social life. Many people desire to have fulfilled and happy lives even outside their families, jobs, and schools, yet they must make personal commitments to succeed in life. Maintaining a sense of balance across three realms may be difficult given the limited amount of time available. Fortunately, achieving a healthy work-life balance is achievable with careful preparation. Each day, I have had to make difficult decisions and spend my time extremely effectively balancing the demands of my education, job, and family. In my view, balancing family obligations, job obligations, and academic obligations is a process rather than a static accomplishment. As a result, making choices about which professions to pursue is critical. Because I am very engaged with work/school, I often neglect what needs to be accomplished and when it needs to be accomplished. A daily planner is a helpful tool that helps me remember critical activities. Every day, I add something significant to my calendar to keep myself up to speed on what is going on in the next week/month. For instance, when it pertains to my education, I have a separate area for them. I constantly put “study one hour in the morning and evening for English” to ensure that I have enough time to go over the resources for the chapters in question. My studies have not suffered as a result, and I am much more prepared to take the chapter test due to this arrangement. As for working, I plan out the days/hours that I will perform ahead of schedule to determine how much time I will have to spend with my family and how much time I will have available for studying. As previously said, family time is significant to me. Therefore I prioritize basic family activities on my calendar, such as eating dinner at a particular time, going out on specific days, or doing various tasks, shopping, or traveling on family vacations. I like the concept of completing my degree online since it enables me to study at my speed and on my schedule. Online courses are convenient since they may be taken at any point throughout the day, twenty four hours per day. If assistance is required, it is only a call away from guiding me through every stage of the procedure. I maintain a healthy work-life balance and effectively spend my time. It needs planning, dedication, and discipline in my relationships with my coworkers, family, school, and other actions and obligations. Although taking an online course gives me the flexibility to work within my other obligations, it is still a difficult job. Online studies provide the convenience of taking courses at any time and from any location, which is ideal for many tasks and responsibilities. One of the secrets to my success has been my ability to organize myself. I utilize various tools to remain organized, including daily planners, calendars, charts, lists, and my smartphone to manage my time efficiently. I start my day by looking at my planner, which summarizes what I need to accomplish each day and how I want to organize my time. I keep track of all of my key activities in my calendar, including school, part-time work, a candle business I run, and an impending wedding and relocation.

I have all of my information in a color-coordinated planner, which I keep with me at all times. This makes it simple for me to track along. My significant events, including my impending wedding, birthdays, and anniversaries, have all been highlighted in blue. I chose the color red since it is vibrant and eye-catching, and I will not be without it. I chose the color green to represent the candle business that I own. My study time, as well as examinations, are designated by the color purple. In addition to my planners, I am using the calendar to keep track of my everyday routines. Another critical factor in my success is my dedication to my obligations, including my health, home, job, and education. My health is the most important thing to me. I make a solemn promise. Every day, I devote an hour to my health. It all began with me taking a stroll, and then I had my daily obligations towards my home, which included my everyday duties. I prepare breakfast, lunch, and supper, do washing, clean the home, and pay the bills, among other things. These are my daily/weekly responsibilities concerning the home. At work, I must adhere to a strict deadline to complete all of my paper-works on time. I set aside two hours every night to work on my projects and prepare for school tests. When taking online exams, I make a promise to myself to complete the exams by the deadlines. Discipline is the most important factor in my effectiveness, after organization, as well as dedication. Without discipline, regardless of how well-organized and dedicated I am, I would have been unable to maintain a sense of time balance and effectively manage my schedule. Self-control and commitment are required for discipline. Daily, I am required to adhere to the norms of discipline. When it comes to my family duties, such as waking up early and preparing breakfast, my alarm clock is my best friend. I have several alarms set through the day as a signal to switch topics. This keeps me from burning out or hyper focusing one one task. The stresses of being a student and a business owner are inextricably intertwined; mix the two, and I easily feel overwhelmed. I have learned to take advantage of those much-needed rest periods. I have a ninety minute nap scheduled into my day every day. After I established this new schedule, everything felt more attainable, and I could do a great deal without feeling stressed. When I start stressing out and doubting my ability to complete the task, all I have to do is recall why I’m doing it. When I embrace the challenge of juggling my job and school simultaneously, I’m taking on something that most people would never consider. Nonetheless, if I didn’t have compelling reasons and drive, I would not be doing it.


Instructions: For this assignment, review the case scenarios below to develop plans


For this assignment, review the case scenarios below to develop plans to guide the children through their mistakes, allowing them to use the mistakes as learning opportunities.

Case Scenario 1: Joey

Joey is a four-year-old child whose family recently relocated to a new town. Joey joined his new Pre-K classroom four months into the school year, after the community of the classroom was established and friendships formed. Joey is a rule-follower and seems to be adjusting well, but he usually plays alone and is shy. One day, Joey is painting at the art center and after finishing his own painting, he begins painting on another child’s work. The other child is visibly upset that her work has been painted on. She and her friend tell Joey that he is not nice and they do not want him there because he painted on her work. When confronted by the other children, he says that there was no more paper, begins crying, and runs to the corner. He has now isolated himself and refuses to speak to anyone.

Case Scenario 2: Olivia

Olivia is a kindergarten student entering school for the first time. She is an only child and has had little exposure to other children. While playing a game, Olivia takes all of the cards from another child. The other child tells Olivia, “That isn’t fair! You need to share!” as he grabs some of the cards back. Olivia gets very close to the other child’s face and yells, “I am the princess! Give me those now!” She then grabs the cards and hits him before walking away.

With occurrences like these, teachers typically arrange to meet with parents to discuss the situation and develop a unified approach to remedying it. Best practice is to follow up the discussion with written confirmation of what was agreed to.

For each of the scenarios above, write 200-250 word discussion outline and a 200-250 word follow up letter including the following:

Part 1: Discussion outline

Explain the situation you observed in your classroom.

Describe what actions you took immediately following the occurrence, and the child’s reaction.

How you will collaborate with the student to use mistakes as learning opportunities to develop healthy socioemotional skills and create a respectful, supportive, and inclusive learning environment.

Suggestions for how parents/guardians can support appropriate behavior at home through respectful, reciprocal relationships.

Part 2: Follow-up letter

Brief summary of the student’s classroom behavior.

Summary of corrective steps you took and will take to help the student to develop appropriate behavior.

At-home strategies to encourage student to develop healthy socioemotional skills.

How you will follow-up with the family about the child’s future behavior and progress.[supanova_question]

Write an introduction that has a thesis.
For example: “An important theme in both Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye and in Martin
Luther King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” is the fall from innocence that characters,
and particularly children, experience when confronted with the real world. Both authors
suggest that this fall can have dire consequences.”

1. In Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye, Claudia recalls:
Our astonishment was short-lived, for it gave way to a curious kind of
defensive shame; we were embarrassed for Pecola, hurt for her, and finally we
just felt sorry for her. Our sorrow drove out all thoughts of the new bicycle. And I
believe our sorrow was the more intense because nobody else seemed to share it. .
. . So it was with confidence, strengthened by pity and pride, that we decided to
change the course of events and alter a human life.
‘What we gone do, Frieda?’
‘What can we do? Miss Johnson said it would be a miracle if it lived.’
‘So let’s make it a miracle.’ (191)
How are children more vulnerable to the harsh realities of an environment that does not
nurture them and what, do the authors suggest, are the consequences of a child’s fall from
innocence? Please answer using ANY of the texts we have discussed this term. Establish
the “fall from innocence” by showing examples from the text of plot points or motifs
(like the staining of the dresses and of Cholly’s pants) at the moments when they lose 1 their innocence. Once you have discussed the texts, you can show how any of the heir innocence. Once you have discussed the texts, you can show how any of the

A personal statement (in 600 words or less) that discusses the applicants’ reasons for applying, interest in foreign affairs, commitment to pursue a Foreign Service career and any relevant experience or information.

I first considered joining the Department of State as a Foreign Service Officer in 2008. At that time, I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Dominican Republic. On this particular day, I had gone into the city-Santo Domingo to visit our medical provider. I was coming back from the medical facility when I ran into another Peace Corps volunteer I knew with two individuals I had never met. the Nation had experienced yet another horrific terrorist tragedy; U.S. Diplomats were killed in Benghazi, Libya. On that morning, like every other September 11th anniversary, the mood of the country was the same – a sense of unified patriotic pride. Yet as the news of the attack in Benghazi began to filter in throughout various broadcasts, things began to change for me. I have always heard about U.S. Diplomats working in other host nations, but I never considered the risk they took. In 2008, I had met two Foreign Service Officers while serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Dominica Republic. The Officers were young, having recently graduated from undergraduate school, and you could see the excitement in their eyes about the new career they were embarking on. Our encounter so, I was under the assumption that they lived these high-profile lives, living in safety with bodyguards out of harm’s way. Yet, on September 11, 2012, I realized my assumptions were far from truth. Like many of our military personnel serving aboard, Foreign Services Officers are often working and living in some of the most hostile environments. At this point I knew I wanted to be part of a mission that was bigger than myself; a mission I could stand behind and be proud of.

In 2014, I decided to join the military on a part-time basis. I enjoyed working in Human Services – giving back to my community, volunteering teaching English as a Second Language,

For the past 10 years, I’ve worked with several local government and non-governmental organizations.

Human Services professionals serve in many roles; counselor, mentor, friend, advisor, all the while maintaining ethical boundaries and general awareness of the different local, state, and federal laws

From an early age, Charles Rangel dedicated his life to serving others in profound ways. From the battlefield to the boardroom, Mr. Rangel broke barriers, making systemic change like, the creation of the Congressional Black Caucus, the enactment of the “Rangel Amendment”, his sponsorship the Heroes Earnings Assistance and Relief Tax (HEART) Act and the Charles B. Rangel Fellowship. The Charles B. Rangel Fellowship is an opportunity for me to reach beyond my own personal goals as Mr. Rangel has done, to create positive change in my community and empower the struggling, marginalized individuals in all communities. The opportunity to travel, promote diplomatic and cooperative initiatives, immerse myself into other cultures, visit new places in the world, work with different people, represent and promote ideals of the United States, while remaining respectful to other beliefs, is the reason why I am applying for the Charles Rangel Fellowship to become a Foreign Service Officer and earn a degree in Public Administration.

City of Newport News Department of Human Services as an Employment Services Worker with the Virginia Initiative for Employment not Welfare (VIEW) program. As an Employment Services Worker, I support and assist the efforts of families receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) to achieve independence through employment. The goal is to focus on each participant’s strengths and provide services to help them overcome job-related challenges, as well as personal, medical and family challenges that affect employment. For me, this job has laid the ground work for me wanting to pursue a degree in Public Administration (possible a dual degree in Public Policy as well). The VIEW initiative was created in Virginia about 20 years ago and unfortunately there are some aspects I feel are obsolete and it’s hard to help people in our current time with an old thought process. Not to mention, with the influx of refugees from various nations, it’s important to update policy as our society changes.

As a Peace Corps Volunteer, I was assigned to the Dominican Republic as a Development Volunteer. I worked with pre-K to Elementary school age children proving educational development and resources. As an AmeriCorps Vista volunteer, I worked with U.S. Department of Justice federal community-based program ‘Weed & Seed’ in the downtown area of Newport News, Virginia. Weed and Seed is a Department of Justice community-based program whose goal is to prevent, control and reduce violent crime, drug abuse, and gang activity in targeted high-crime neighborhoods throughout the country. I worked on various committees bridging the communication gap between local law enforcement, community residents and local non-profit organizations and organized community revitalization and resources.

volunteering that I possessed ever since I was a young child expressing great enthusiasm for church and school service events. As I grew older, I began volunteering for many other community events, such as serving over 200 hours at a local hospital, helping with free cancer screenings, and fitting children with free bike helmets. I even created my own donation drive for a local women’s and children’s shelter. I feel the best when I am striving to create positive changes in my community and for struggling, marginalized individuals. Social services have been a part of my life for a very long time, and I want it to continue to be on a professional level.

My interest persisted and grew as I began to see how my efforts had the ability to improve the lives of people around me. I first noticed this on a personal level as friends would come to me for advice or for me to listen to their struggles and provide comfort. No matter how mundane, horrific, unique, or common the story was, I listened to them in a genuine and non-judgmental manner. I truly enjoyed hearing people’s stories and providing comfort and advice when needed. These moments helped me realize the power of simply being there for someone, and it increased my interest of pursuing a career where I can support those who need it most. I want to become a social worker so I can provide direction to those who may not be able to get it from other sources, just like I have done for various people throughout my life.

The opportunity to travel, promote diplomatic and cooperative initiatives, immerse myself into other cultures, visit new places in the world, work with different people, represent and promote ideals of the United States, while remaining respectful to other beliefs, is the reason why I am applying for the Charles Rangel Fellowship to become a Foreign Service Officer and earn a degree in Public Administration.

My heart’s desire is to help people overcome barriers irregardless of race, ethnicity, and gender. I believe my experiences working in my current position and my desire to

I’ve always had a passion to serve people and to work internationally. When I saw the faces of those who perished in the Benghazi attack; I thought what better way to serve than to join the Department of State Foreign Service Officer Program.

Unsure how to close the essay

My interest in foreign affairs stems from my travels aboard for personal and academia purposes. Growing up in a military household, I not only lived in several places, but I also befriended people from a variety of diverse cultural backgrounds. My fascination and love for different cultures, languages, and food lead me to study aboard in Quito, Ecuador for two semesters, join the Peace Corps after completion of my undergraduate studies, and even enlisted in the United States military. It was then when I realized my life’s mission was to service humanity

A statement (in 400 words or less) from the applicant that discusses his/her need for financial assistance to attend graduate school, including an explanation of:

The financial assistance received during undergraduate studies

Overall education-related debt

Ability/plans to pay for graduate school independently

The value of education is something that I have understood since a very young age. Neither of my parents had an opportunity to attend college, and faced some struggles in their personal and professional lives because of this. My parents made a commitment early in my life to do everything within their power to instill in me a love of learning and an understanding of the importance of hard work and dedication.

My father migrated to the United States in the early 1970s, living with family in Oakland, CA, until he passed the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test to join the United States Army in order to bring my mother and siblings to the United States. Because of their love and sacrifice over the years, I have been able to devote the time and energy necessary to academic accomplishment even though money was always been tight.

As a first generation college graduate, I received assistance to attend college through U.S. Federal Pell Grants and personal student loans. My current student loan debt balance is $31,523.77. Awarding full tuition assistance from the Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Graduate Fellowship would provide with me with the opportunity to pursue a Master’s of Public Administration Program from the college or university of my choice; while allowing me to focus on earning my degree without the hardship of repaying yet another student loan.

If offered the Charles B. Rangel International Affairs Graduate Fellowship I would have to end my full-time employment with the City of Newport News Department of Human Service in Newport News, Virginia. Thus, financial assistance will be critical to ability attend a two-year university to pursue a degree in Public Administration.[supanova_question]
