Academy of Art University: A Day in the Life

Choosing a place to study that will be the perfect fit is one of the challenges that all students face. Pairing the end of high school with the sense of excitement and adventure has a nagging fear of choosing the wrong place. This makes you think, wouldn’t it be amazing if students could follow someone for a day or more at one of the colleges of their choice and actually get a feel for the people, campus, and overall atmosphere before you commit to going there?

Luckily, Sam Bear a student at the Academy of Art University, shared a typical day of study in the world of motion pictures and television. He was able to document everything that happens in a normal day of a student at the Academy of Art University. Sam starts by rising early at 9am in his room at the Commodore Dormitory to prepare himself for the day. The Commodore was built as a merchant seaman hotel in 1928 and is one of the 15 total residence facilities for the Academy of Art University.

Sam then takes part in 2 different classes in the School of Motion Pictures and Television. Each class is spaced far apart to make time for other college things like project collaborations, studying, and even relaxation. His first class, Production Design, begins at 11am. This is where the students are able to focus on a variety of things like props, sets, and even costumes. Classes like these give Sam the opportunity to share his work as well as be encouraged and challenged by his peers and professors. Sam is able to start building the relationships that will become crucial in his future career. At 3pm, he has a Directing Actors Class. This is a collaborative class that allows the students to work together.

TigerSwan: A Highlighted Veteran’s Business

james reese tigerswanTigerSwan is a US business that focuses on protecting international and American based companies. The owner, James Reese, is a veteran who retired out of the Delta Forces in the late 2000s. During his time in the military, he served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Many might say this is where James Reese fine-tuned his leadership talent that he was born with. TigerSwan is Reese’s newest challenge.

TigerSwan uses the newest equipment to train their elite staff. One piece they have relied upon lately is the Suburban SUV. This workhorse was put to the test. The crew practiced taking it out in the dark of night, but the drive is nothing like ours. They drive in the dark because during any of their missions this may be how they have to come into any compound or rescue situation. The team uses their high-tech night vision gear to survey the landscape and road ahead. The SUV must be able to traverse rugged landscape where no trail exists.

In addition to transportation, TigerSwan must use rifles and other firepower. They practice with their guns to keep their sharp edge, but their shooting is not on any average target practice range. TigerSwan needs its people to aim with accuracy after getting to the location. It could be night, blistering hot, and there could be gunfire all around them. TigerSwan prepares them for this environment by practice and mental preparation. The shooting range might include hitting a target off in the distance or obscured. The time of day can vary when the real missions strike, so everyone must get comfortable firing at night using night vision, during high noon with the temperature soaring, and at dusk when it is hard to see.

James Reese and the team at TigerSwan are proud to be a blend of veterans and other skilled workers. They are all very humble in their service, and they do not boost or show off any of their skills. They are a team that is there to protect and complete missions. Under the watchful care and eye of James Reese, TigerSwan is a shining example of a successful veteran business.

How ClassDojo Is Helping Our Educational System

After first hearing about ClassDojo from my 10-year-olds 5th-grade teacher, I didn’t quite understand all the hype behind it. Being a mother of 4 children ages ranging from 18-years down to 4-years, and feeling like the educational system has gone downhill since my day, I began to read up on it and see what it’s all about. I have to say, this is one modern educational management app that definitely has taken the right direction in bridging the gap between educators, parents, and the students that they all teach.

For a long time, we as a culture didn’t cater properly to the needs of bridging the gaps between school and home.

  • The educators were complaining about the lack of involvement from parents.
  • The parents were complaining about not having any way to be extremely involved with their children’s education.
  • The children complained about being bored and education not being fun.

Well, ClassDojo was built with all of these needs in mind. And because of that, there are now educators, parents, and students all over the world that have the opportunity to communicate consistently with one another and streamline education across schools and homes. Students of all ages get to experience a fun educational environment at school with a great point system that can be utilized in school or at home with an in-app subscription for parents.

Whether you’re an educator or a parent looking for classroom management, ClassDojo is for you and your students.
