Today, Leah and I enjoyed the beautiful flowers and weather. We finished working on the internship book, then walked to her interview to Mann Hall. We enjoyed our lunch outside the Davis Center and it was a relaxing day for us. -Emily

Leah & Emily
I will miss all of the mentors – Abby, Gabby, Cora, Maddy, and so on. I want to cry. It is time to go. I’ll be gone from UVM. I’m happy for the fact everyone at UVM knows the new me. The pain of losing all of the people I love hurts.
The beach party
This is how I ended my Internship at WCAX last Tuesday morning. It had a Beach party theme. I thought it was very bitter sweet and I had an amazing internship experience. I posted one of my favorite pictures from the party, because it shows me with three incredible people who gave me a chance to do what I love. Thank you for an incredible semester.
When I first got the internship I was thrilled and totally excited to be working at WCAX. I never would of thought I would be doing my internship at the most popular Channel 3 News station. I took several things away from this internship and one thing is making new connections in the same field I want to be in as well. The other thing I took away is making new friends and hopefully stay connected with them. The third thing I took away with this internship is learning new filming and editing skills. The last thing I took away from this opportunity is focusing on what is important to you as you build your career path.
This semester has been amazing to be a part of. Plants are now sprouting, flowers are blooming, and I think mother nature does a fine job of describing my first semester as a mentor. I can not explain the joy I’ve had to work with the students and get to know them. I have grown as a teacher, a friend, and as a listener. It is amazing to see the symbiotic relationship between what we give to the students, and the abundance they give to us! I am looking forward to the end of the year picnic, and another year with the program!
Taylor and I after her wonderful oral presentation at the Symposium.
Today was a good day for the CESS Synposium. I did an awesome rock star job on my presentation. I had a lot of people come and check out my project and there were other tables about other education programs. I was a little nervous about presenting in front of a lot of special educators. I felt pretty awesome at the end because it was over and I felt so proud of myself.
Yesterday was our programs group photo day right next to the catamount cat (Rally Cat). when Cora and I got there we saw Moriah, Maddie, Leah and Gabby. kiersten told us to stand on the catamount cat. we took some pictures of the group, some were funny and other pictures were serious. here is one of our favorite pictures:
Spring 2013 Crew
The opening doors conference was good and my presentaion was to Susan Ryan and Moriah and a few others. I persented about ThinkCollege and mentor support. Everyone was wearing nice clothes and I had a lot of fun. I have enjoyed my internship and all of the people at August First are very nice. Today, they opened the door becouse of the nice weather and I aslo scooped cookies and made bread.
Student-Mentor Panel at Opening Doors to College & Careers 2013 Conference
Spending time with Maddie on campus was a lot of fun on Monday hanging out outside in the warm weather, working on homework and taking pictures for class. I told Maddie that free cone day was on Tuesday and that I was not going to be there that day, she said to me “go and ask them if you could go and get a free cone or scoop for that day and they said yes and so as I was walking out of Ben and Jerry’s I told Maddie that “I used my charming personality to go and get a cone or scoop of sorbet”.
I am very excited about the Opening Doors Conference at the Sheraton hotel on April 16. I am going to do two presentations, one is with Susan Ryan to talk about the PAR class and how it works, and the other one is the mentor panel to talk about what the students like about the mentors and what it’s like to become a mentor for the UVM Think College Vermont Program. It’s going to be a fun day and everyone should come to cheer us on as we present our presentations to you.
When I was doing my internship at August First bakery I put dough through the machine that rolled it into logs and then I put sesame seeds on the logs. Then I cut some olives for the olive bread for tomorrow. I didn’t scoop cookies today and I gave my scooping muscles a break from scooping oatmeal raisin cookies on monday. Maybe I will scoop cookies on Friday but I am not sure if I will or not I will have to wait to see what they have for me to do on Friday.
