I started my ILP last week. I am interning at WXPN the radio station. I met loads of new and interesting people. It was a really fun experience even though the first day I just did some steady office work. I'm looking forward to shadowing the different departments & setting up for events. I can't wait to see what this year brings me!


I already met up with Jeremy.
I have to send an email to my friend's dad, who is a musician, who can supervise me recording my music.
This is my first year in SLA, and no one really explained ILPs to me going into the year. I've been playing it by ear since the start, and I am pretty close to having one.

ILP Blog Post #1

1. I hope to talk to Jeremy during Study Skills or lunch tomorrow, October 16th.
2. I had sent an email to the Philadelphia History Museum at Atwater Kent, but, because, of changes at the museum, I didn't receive a reply until today. I have a slot open for the 21st of October.
3. Because of restructuring/changes at the Philadelphia Museum, my reply was delayed by several weeks.
4. This is important because my ILP was delayed for almost a month. 


​What went well with my ILP was that I was able to put experience in administration I had developed over the summer to use (making phone calls, filing, etc.)

I'm looking forward to building upon this experience.

What stands out is my ability to think on my feet. I have a certain script to follow on the phones, but sometimes people have follow up questions or start a conversation and I have to go off script. Also the people I work with are really nice and the environment is great.

What I think is important is maintaining professionalism and politeness since I technically am a representative of the organization. 


I'm currently in the process of getting adjusted with my ILP, which is the Social Media Innovator position at Imagine Leaders LLC. I haven't started yet, but essentially I would be able to decide what content is displayed on the company's social media platforms. I'm able to work from home and the work times are extremely flexible. I'm looking forward to bringing my ideas to the tale, and also to get leadership training along the way. 


​I haven't met with Jeremy yet, I have been trying to find an ILP on my own. If I continue to struggle with this, then I will consult him. I have been researching and looking for oppurtunities. I have asked my parents on what they think also. I just haven't found a suitable ILP that I like yet. I would like to find one in the city so it is easier for transportation, but I haven't found an oppurtuinty yet.

I do NOT have an ILP.... yet

I transferred to SLA this year for tenth grade, and though that I would need an ILP at some point in the future. Instead I quickly came to realize that I would need one as soon as possible not a distant time later in the year. In addition to my classwork and homework I have been working to get an ILP. I have  communicated via e-mail with Jeremy a few times, and met with him once. In the course of that meeting we managed to narrow down potential ILPS to one of several possibilities and ruled out some impossible ILP opportunities, for example positions already filled in organizations. The only thing that has really impeded me from quickly finding an ILP is that Jeremy can be difficult to contact, most likely due to the fact that he has so many students asking him for help and flooding his e-mail inbox.

​For my ILP, Im doing Project Stargazer, and I learned a lot of coding, (3 classes of computer science to be specific).

  • what went well? What went well is how smoothly learning how to code, and the goals of project stargazer
  • What are you looking forward to? I'm looking forward to advancing in programming, and being able to complete an idea that I would like to finish. 
  • What stands out that has happened so far? I think what stands out for me is the friendship people have in the ILP, because it sometimes amuses me.

Kingsessing Library Elementary Kids Tutoring!

I am interning at the Kingsessing Public Library in Southwest Philadelphia. I am interning there from 2pm-4pm.  I am mentoring both elementary kids and middle schoolers, however I am mainly mentoring elementary school kids. I started for the first time last week. I really enjoyed it! It was so fun. I worked with two sixth graders and a fifth grader. They were all boys and had me laughing the entire time. They had alot of stories about what school was like, and joked around alot. However, I made sure that they got their homework done and did their work while they talked and laughed. I also met  a Teacher Assisting Leader. Her name was Ms. Kelly. She just finished college, and is going to be helping the kids with their homework as well. She is really sweet. She also helped keep the boys focused while we did work. 
I've been going to the Kingsessing library for years, they have so many fun programs and movie nights that are really fun. I've also known most of the staff my whole life. They have a learning after school program called LEAP, which is where I am interning.  I also have experience working and babysitting kids so I wasn't worried. I am really looking forward to next Wednesday, seeing and working with the kids again. I also look forward to the fun arts and crafts activities I do with them after they are done their homework. So far, the thing that stands out to me so far, is the firs day of my intern and how fun it was. I think that is important that I establish a could connection with each of the kids I am going to be mentoring, so that they can feel comfortable when asking me for help.I also think that t is important that I act mature but also have fun and have a good time. I'm 15 but, I have alot to learn! I look forward to continuing my internship here. I love the fact that it is a combination of three things I love to do : talking, helping, and working with  kids. 

ILP- Tia Roberts

I volunteer at First Philadelphia Preparatory Charter School as an assistant coach of cheer leading. When I go there, I do a lot of leadership, and teaching the 14 girls different cheers and stretches. I feel it goes very well because each week I have accomplished teaching them about 2 cheers a practice. Also, I do a lot of paper work and dealing with contacting everyone and their parents with important information about practicing etc. I am looking forward to continuing working with each and every girl and creating more dances and cheers to teach them each week. 

Kaamil ILP 1st Experience

For my ILP I decided to do the theater program here at SLA. So far everything is going great! The teacher is a teacher I had last year for a residency here at SLA! I'm looking forward to going to see some plays next month at the Philadelphia Theater Company. I am also looking forward to making my own play and performing it at the Philadelphia Theater Company. 

I have an ILP!

I have gone to my ILP for two weeks now. 
I, along with Paul-Ann Whyte, work at the central library in the teen section. Our job for most of this year is setting up and organizing Comic-Con at the library! 
So, we've been working on getting contacts for the event, and finding people that came last year (this year?) to come this year again. (Well, next year.) And just calling people and organizing locations of possible events happening. 
We also have reign over smaller events and just general set up stuff in the library. 
It's so far really fun, and I look forward to hosting Comic-Con.

First entry

  •  What went well?
I had a discussion with him and we thought out basic lesson plans. We didn't actually do anything last time. but we have a solid idea of what we are doing today. I'm super excited to help teach scratch!!
  • What are you looking forward to?
tEACHING SCRATCH!!!! And also just learning how. And meeting the kids.
  • What stands out that has happened so far?
The awkwardness of going back there, kind of. The person at the front desk was someone that I remember from my school career there. Also Mr.Landis's desk was fantastically messy. 
  • Add what you think is important.
I'm not sure if he emailed jeremy yet.


For my ILP, I decided to  work at the after school program, Fuel, at my church. Yesterday was my second week and I have a blast there. I get to help the 3-6th graders with their homework and we teach them bible lessons. Then they go to electives. I work in the cooking elective. So far, we've made rice crispy treats and peach cobbler.

Doing this Home network made me realize that My homework is connected to a lots of device like my laptop and computer and 7 phones and my TV and the family Tv and my mom and dad Tv . And with all these devices are connected I realized that how fast my wi-Fi works .

Home Network, Ryan (1)

1.There are eight devices connected to my L.A.N. They include: my desktop, printer, laptop, kindle, PS4(gaming console), and my two cable boxes.
2. I learned a lot about networks. I learned about the names of the different wires such as the coax and ethernet wires, I learned about what a network consists of in your home, and I learned about the history of the internet.
3. I would tell people there are information that they need to know about their ISP/home network and it would be how they get their internet, what connects to the internet in their homes, and the different ways to improve their internet speed.

During this project, I was greatly annoyed and confused. Up until the last ten minutes when everything came together. I quickly finished my chart, downloaded and uploaded it, and embedded it into this very post. There were many distractions along the way, but I managed to hone my focus and finish it. I come out of this with the knowledge of LucidCharts, and how to embed an HTML code into slate. On the topic of my home network, I have multiple phones and computers connected to my network, owned by my mother and I, along with a TV with a roku box attached, and an Ipad. From this assignment I learned how my router and modem are connected to the internet.

My Home Network - Vivian Pham

Explaining the network:
My ISP is Comcast and the ethernet cable is made of coax. I have a modem and a router, an ethernet cable connects from the modem to router. The cloud internet comes into the router and it goes to modem and the modem makes the internet in my house wireless. And my router makes internet wireless and there the technology in my house connects to the internet without the use of an ethernet cable unless its through a computer or laptop. 
Something I learned about my home network is that there are two different systems that actually provide the devices in my house with internet, I never that. I thought it was just one system and that was it but its way more than just one. And i also learned to have the modem and the router connected an ethernet cord connects them. I also learned that when we search something or make a request online it goes through many processes and depending on our internet it may come faster or more delayed. 
Something that i would tell other people about my ISP is that sometimes Comcast can have some issues or problems but if you get the right package, the internet is really fast. And that its more simple when it comes to installing the internet using Comcast. And for me, my parents ordered just the internet on Comcast but not cable. 

Tylier's home network

​1.My L.A.N. is Comcast. All the devices on my internet connection are my phones from my mother, me , my step father. There are two tablets that belong to my two brothers. I have a computer connected to an ether-net cable and my school laptop as well a laptop my parent uses. I also have an Xbox that is connected through WiFi.
2. I learned how to create a PDF file and how the internet, intranet, and the world wide web work and how they differ from each other
3.I would tell other people the difference between the internet and the intranet. Next, i would teach them about how they get internet into their house. Finally, i would show them their connected devices that are connected to their intranet.
