Family & Friends
I was raised in Belmont, California and I attended public schools in Belmont from grammar school through high school. Education has always been extremely important to me and I plan to continue taking classes through life in order to continue learning and to set a good example for my children.
My family is the core of my life. Without them, I would not have the same passion for life as I do now. My friends are a key element to my happiness and feelings of need. Both my family and friends have helped to make me who I am today.

Course History
Communication Skills
This is a highly participatory upper-division course in the curriculum. The approach taken in this class is humanistic and personal. This practical course deals with issues in everyday living (work, community, home) and provides a catalyst for personal growth. Although there is the expectation that you will speak in front of the class, this is not a speech course. The theory and practice of influencing thought through oral and non-verbal forms of communication will be reviewed. Becoming aware of your “self” will be emphasized and encouraged through homework assignments, class exercises and spontaneous presentations. Topics for student mastery will include platform speaking skills, basic and advanced techniques of interpersonal communication along with identification and assessment of personal strengths and weaknesses in human relations. (NDNU Syllabus, Patrick Arbore, Summer 2011)

Mission Statement
Founded upon the values of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and rooted in the Catholic tradition, Notre Dame de Namur University serves its students and the community by providing excellent professional and liberal arts programs in which community engagement and the values of social justice and global peace are integral to the learning experience. NDNU is a diverse and inclusive learning community that challenges each member to consciously apply values and ethics in his or her personal, professional, and public life.
This class was life changing and was at a time in my life where self reflection was very important. My confidence was increased by presenting in front of the class each week and discussing a wide variety of topics. It strengthened me and helped me to grow as a person.

Artwork - Past - Present - Future
I have been painting as long as I remember. Over the past several years with three children, work and school, it has been a challenge to find the time to paint. I plan on painting more after graduating.
To strive each day to become a stronger mother, wife, worker and educator in order that those around
me can benefit and learn from my strength that they are capable of whatever they set their mind to.
I will continue to learn more daily in order to enhance my knowledge and I will exude solid moral and ethical standards. I will always tell the truth. I endeavor
to help others with their goals and guide
them to make their dreams a reality.
All I do will be with love, forgiveness and honesty.

Social Research Methods
This class taught me how to research a topic from start to finish. It was the best feeling to research a topic of interest to me, get 99 people to take my survey, and turn in a 99 page paper at the end of the course. I plan to continue to research my topic as time goes on and more data is collected on the topic.
The main objective is to demystify the research process by encouraging the student’s ability to systematically investigate interesting ideas. Through a series of written assignments, an exam, a paper, and in-class discussions, proficiency in the subject matter will be demonstrated (NDNU Syllabus, Patrick Arbore, 2012)

get the most out of life.

Inspirational Message
I first saw Randy Pausch give The Last Lecture when I was searching for information to include in a paper for Communication Skills. The full video from Carnegie Hall in 2007 was moving. This video below is shorter and gives the highlights of the speech at Carnegie Hall. The message that Mr. Pausch delivers is one that each one of us needs to take to heart in order that we make sure we all live life to the fullest, to have fun, to always tell the truth and to know what truly matters in life.
