I am currently employed with Quincy Public Schools as a paraeducator at ABC Academy (soon to be know as The Academy since they are combining ABC Academy and Adams County Regional Safe School together. I have been with ABC Academy for 6 years and have experience in aiding alternative setting students with their social, emotional, and academic needs. I also follow I.E.P's (Individualized Education Plans - never written them but try to adhere to their goals and accommodations) as well as utilize PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) daily to ensure students have a structured and learning conducive environment.
I also have three years experience of driving a school bus for the Quincy Public Schools Dist. I know the qualifications needed and expectations included when operating a bus and what is required of me while driving it. I also have a CDL class B with passenger endorsement (no longer have the school endorsement being that it requires a yearly refresher course as well as I am no longer a school bus driver).
Lastly, I worked at Best Buy when it was still located in Quincy. My position was Loss Prevention, Inventory, and Merchandising. I greeted customers entering the building and assisted them in their needs. I surveyed and patrolled the store to ensure product wasn't stolen. I also priced, stocked, unloaded, and loaded inventory from truck to store floor.
Most game nights are held at my place of residence so therefore hosting duties occur as well as being the Game Master for a few groups of people. I believe everyone (most people) should try to game with people of like mindedness so reason as follows:
1. Social Skills - Developing your ability to speak with anyone is viable in any career you are working in, as well as life in general.
2. Leadership - Whether you are the Game Master and are creating a game for your players to enjoy or making the difficult decisions in a tough session as a player, having the ability to do so effectively will no doubt aid you in and out of game.
3. Team Building - Undoubtedly, games (especially co-operative ones) require good team building. Good teams becomes great ones, when the members trust each other enough to surrender the “me” for the “we“.
4. Problem Solving - Solving puzzles or conflict in a made up situation where the consequences for failure are harmless (in real life) can be quite fun. Having the practice to do so is invaluable so that when situations occur in the real world, perhaps experience will give you the minor edge to overcome it.
