Hi,  I'm Ellen and I'm in the MEPAP1 course.  There's only one week left but it seems like we just started.  I can't wait to use everything I've learned although I have written a few programs to specific needs already.  It felt great!   It will be nice to get back to a regular sleep schedule.  These past few weeks have been exhausting.  I think of all the new ideas I have for work and I know it's all worth it.  :)

Mabuhay!!  (Welcome!)

 

I am Dominique Wieland, from Camp Hill, PA- works in Carlisle and Mechanicsburgs.  I am from the beautiful 7,102 island of the Philippines.  I had been a Postmaster for 12 years before I migrated here so far it is my 9 years here now and my accent had a lil bit improved  :wub: I had been a CNA for many years already and it was luckily I was trained doing activity as part of my Float position in Messiah Lifeways since then I realized that is what I love to be doing.  I can be all at one in one job! ( a teacher, an artist, comedian, bit singer bit dancer, etc etc ) - since then my life were never boring!  I am happier when I come home and my back wasnt aching as when I do CNA job.

 

 

I am about to finish MEPAP1.  I would like to thank my AD in Thornwald Home who encourages me to do this schooling coz  I love it so much and looking forward to do the MEPAP2 sometime this year.  It was challenging having 2 jobs, family and doing the MEPAP but I have no regret at all.  It made me a better person and it improved my skill in using microsoft and the subject matter here are all relevant to what we are doing.  I am  so blessed to be in the class meeting new people all around USA and speaking the same language " Activities Professional Language".. Chat rooms are informative and although it is a fast interaction- very useful in planning future activities.. so always have your pen and paper ready.

 

I am hoping to continue my education here  to keep me updated, enjoy friendship with my fellow classmates and it makes my drive always energized in doing my AA job.

 

Hoping to be an AD someday..........may take awhile but while waiting for that day.. I will keep enhancing myself with job experience and continue educating myself online.

 

For those who are new-  sit back and relax it could be a bumpy ride but if you give time for this-- you will be in the finish line.  Just now every topic and assignments are worth it!

 

If there is anything I can do for you to help! please give me a buzz through my email--- dsowieland@yahoo.com.

 

 

God bless everyone!

 

Maraming Salamat!  (Thank you very much)

 

Dominique :D

Hello All. My name is Cynthia Karnes. I live in Wilmington, DE. I work as a Recreation Assistant at an ACTS Continuing Living Community, in the Healthcare section. I am currently in Mepap 1 through ADN. It is challenging keeping up with all the weekly and practicum assignments, but it has pushed me in to learn about the ins and outs of becoming an AD and of course to be a better Recreation Assistant to my residents. I am grateful to have found this community to network with and learn from.
