My SMART Goal : Before doing our first POLs we were asked to come up with a goal with an action plan that we believed that would help improve the upcoming semester. One thing that I feel I really showed a struggle in last semester was communication. When I am put in a situation I tend to lack the ability to go and ask for help or the speak up when needed. My goal to change this I am planning on talking to my advisor every week to see if there is anything I need to work on and have her help when it comes to contacting people . This semester I want to never want lack of communication to be the reason for me to fail an assignment or fall behind. I will also check my grades once a week at least and if I feel my grade us not where it should be I will talk to the teacher of the class with the given grade and make sure I try to get my grade up whether it is by a lot or not.
