Now that the school year is over, and my time in Cathie’s class has come to a close, the only thing left to do is reflect. This class was a challenge for me, but it taught me the ups and downs of working with no real guarantee of a reward. But now as I sit in my new job (that I can thank this class for!) I can already see how the skills I learned in this class have changed my outlook and work ethic. Everyday when I sit down for work I have to collaborate, come up with new ideas, and expand on ideas from others. I have to edit using WordPress, (which is the website you’re on now!) and use HTML. If I didn’t have this class, I wouldn’t feel motivated to go that extra mile for my new job, not knowing if there truly is any positive outcome. What you do gain out of your hard work is work you can be proud of, people around you who will value as a trustworthy person, and pride in yourself that you’re trying to make a difference in your work environment.
I just want to thank everyone in this class that helped me learn something about myself, and to Cathie for always pushing me to achieve more.
