The first lab at St. Marys was a wonderful experience. I think myself and my peers all did an awesome job. I feel like we all went in there with positive attitudes and excitement. we were the gym group and it was amazing to be able to present the kids with our games the first day. I think this is going to be an amazing semester here at St. Marys.

Over the past weekend I volunteered for the Special Olympics on Friday night and Saturday morning. It was an amazing experience to help out and meet the athletes. The athletes were awesome people they were so excited to be there and played the games with all their hearts. I wanted to share how much this experience meant to me and how it really touched me to be able to be apart of this event.

The last two classes have really opened my eyes about the danger that faces children everyday. Of course child molestation isn't anything I didn't know about but now I know how to look for it and protect children from it ever happening to them. The videos we viewed in class made me see that anybody can do this and not to be stereotypical about it, to look for the warning signs in everyone. It also let me see how we as teachers can protect ourselves from this and that the guidelines in place are to protect everyone and are extermly helpful and useful.
