Spring Break/ Field

My final field placement is going well and it is with great hopes that I plan to transition into a full-time position upon graduation. Being a voice for children who cannot protect themselves, Assisting parents to be their best, and Helping the community understand that children are our future; thus child abuse is not an option. These are just a few of the important things that I have done over the course of my final semester. I spent 40-hours last week at my field placement and Spring Break is coming to a close as I write this message. My work at the agency where I have been placed has been extremely meaningful and the learning has been tremendous. Despite the frustration and occasional stress, I am thankful to have had as many field placement experiences as I have had. Thanks to Wake County Human Services, Guildford County Department of Social Services, and Durham County Department of Social Services I am confident that my experiences with each and the classroom learning that I have acquired have prepared me to be the great social worker that I will be declared to be on May 8, 2010!!!

Spring Break is Almost Here!

With my final semester underway, it is good to know that Spring Break is almost here. I will not be on an exotic beach or in the Cayman Islands for Spring Break this year (maybe next year :) ), but I will be making a difference in the lives of children and families in Durham, N.C. My final internship is with Durham County Department of Social Services and thus far it has been a joy! Please stay posted for some of my recent experiences in the coming weeks....
