Monica Romero – Online MSW Student
As I begin my concentration level practicum, I made a conscience decision to reflect on my current self-care practices and create a plan to implement these practices on a consistent basis.
Time management skills are especially important to a student’s success in OLLU’s 8 week accelerated classes. One aspect of time management is prioritization.
The option of attaining a degree online has many advantages for those of us that are unable to attend traditional on-campus classes. As a spouse and mother, online school has proven beneficial for me because of its flexibility and accessibility.
As I near the end of my first round of field work, I reflect on whether or not I made the most of my learning experience. Could I have prepared more or did I take advantage of additional opportunities within the agency?
