My Live Personal Interview

What are some of the challenges and rewards of being a health administrator?

In my line of career, I face many challenges, which arise from day-to-day operations of the facility. First and foremost, building a consensus when implementing a strategic plan, with all concerned, is always a difficult task. I was once tasked to implement an expansion program for the facility, which could have led to expanding the services offered by the facility, as well as, increasing the number of staff. The board of members had different opinions on what they wanted to be expanded in terms of the facility and services being offered to patients. Some of the member wanted the cancer unit to be expanded in order to offer better services to patients and further research be conducted on cancer disease. Others member wanted the neurology department be equipped with modern facilities to combat all neurological referrals within the state. We discussed all the pros and cons of implementing the different ideas until we settled on expansion of the cancer unit of the hospital. This needed a lot of patience with a lot of convincing power to bring on board all the members of the hospital team to one consensus.

Interviewing Teachers

2nd Grade

Transitioning from basal reading instruction to novel studies instruction may prove to be a challenging task for the beginning teachers but the benefits are worth the effort. Novel studies doesn’t only focus upon reading and writing skills but also provides students additional perspectives through the introduction of diverse subject matters including science, social studies, and math. By forcing the students to step into new territories, novel studies help expand their critical reasoning skills as well as improve their vocabulary. Another benefit of novel studies is that it provides considerable teaching flexibility to the teachers. The teachers can also incorporate project-based activities as well as assessment strategies which encourage students to think about complex issues in depth. Students also find them engaged because they discover that they can personally relate to some novels. Similarly, novel studies also help students become more practical and allow them to see the usefulness of the acquired knowledge in the real world.

Culture and Identity Interview

INTRODUCTION

Ethnographic research strives to adapt a viewpoint on its subject matter that is faithful to that which is being studied. In other words, the ethnographer under ideal conditions tries to let the subject speak for him or herself. Since ethnography is dealing with human beings, there is an ethical aspect to ethnography that is underscored by a basic humanity, whereby the ethnographer tries to suspend his or her prejudice, and let the narrative of the ethnographic topic in question develop on its own accord. In this regard, the interview can be viewed as an ideal form of ethnography, since one is trying to let the interviewee express his or her sentiments on the questions asked. This preamble helps clarify what the basic guidelines were that framed the following interview with a 21 year old American of Hmong ancestry. In short, the interview sought to let this narrative of an individual existing at the intersection of Hmong and American culture unfold at its own tempo and volition.
