A CHALLENGING PROJECT

Knowledge Meets Curiosity

Tackling this project required breaking it into several phases. The most important stage was outlining my goals and defining the research questions. Once these were in place, I spent hours at the school library, surfed the net for online resources and carried out various experiments and tests. Writing came next, and the outcome is here for you to judge. Would love to hear your thoughts and comments - contact me at school or by email!

Team Work

In JROTC teams have an important place in our professional and personal lives. Working in teams is probably and inevitable life experience, even for people who prefer to work alone. There are always student teams, task forces, and activities/events in addition to all of the work place demands for working in a team. A team generates positive synergy through coordinated effort. But most importantly, the effectiveness of a team is influenced by both internal and external factors.  Internal factors include clear purpose, informality, participation, listening, open communication, shared leadership, consensus decisions, clear roles, and task assignments ( pictures above: starting from the left, Cloud Rodin Xochi Gervais, Venus Rodin, Kendra Puleo and Tehani Apao).
