                   -Ms. Schulz is a Parent Aid
While shadowing Ms. Schulz I had the
 opportunity to see many of the
 responsibilities of an MSW and was assigned
 a variety of duties myself:
• I observed many groups
    • Grandparents and Single Moms
    • Character Education (K - 2)

• Researched and helped prepare various trainings
• Prepared and Led non-therapeutic groups for young
• Attended home visits
    • Parent Aid Program

 I would recommend Ms. Schulz
    or a similar placement if:
• You have a leaning for a specific occupation
   • Specifically MSW
• You would like to better understand the day to day
  activities of a specific occupation
• You enjoy new activities every day
• Have a hard time sitting at a desk
• Want to learn more about available community
• Want a supervisor who will go out of her way to ensure
  your learning and growth
• Want an opportunity to try new activities and
  responsibilities instead of just watching
