I am Anthony Bloom; the driving instructor for AABC Driving Schools who has worked with your daughter Amanda for her past 2 lessons.
First, let me thank you for the kind words you expressed to the staff of AABC over your satisfaction with my work with Amanda on her first lesson. One of my goals with each student I encounter is to encourage their faith in their own abilities and accomplishments when behind the wheel based on their actual accomplishments, and for them to - as much as possible - have a positive experience with each lesson. Thank you for helping to affirm my decision to join the AABC Team!
My personal passions in being a Driver Instructor stem from my 32 years as a Police Officer, with my entire career being spend on the front lines of street patrol. That has blessed me with an extensive expertise in the areas of: Field Training; Advanced Driving / Emergency Vehicle Operation Tactics; Traffic Safety and Enforcement; and Traffic Crash Investigation, Causes, and Effects. My past training, along with my instruction from Tom Laplante (AABC owner, and one of Wisconsin 's longest and most respected driving Instructors) has uniquely qualified me to not only teach people how to drive, but has also to understand WHY we should use specific driving strategies, skills, and tactics.
Although I am the newest member of the School, I believe I speak for all of us at AABC when I say that we do not simply look at our jobs as running a student through the State of Wisconsin 's required 30 Classroom/6 Driving/6 Observing hours. Rather, we seriously and passionately endeavor to teach and coach each student in such a manner as to give them the best opportunity possible t...

...ities to perform this awe striking manuever. In the same way, student drivers only develop a trust of their own abilities and talents behind the wheel with continual, regular, and long term repetitive practice.
All of these processes can only be achieved by regular and repetitive practice and training. Anything less results in either ineffective and/or very slow progress in skills and confident. Non-practice can also prevent the learning and retaining of past skills learned. Just as the athlete cannot learn efficiently to play music by practicing once a week, nor the sports player learn their craft by only going to practice once in a while, the driving student best benefits best from regular (preferably, daily) exposure to operating a motor vehicle, while practicing and honing the skills of each driving tactic they have learned, as well as general driving about.

- From the moment they wake up, people experience events that trigger certain emotions. How people react to these events may depend on that person feels during that event. In terms of whether our emotions control us or we control our emotions, I believe that to some extent emotions control us. Because we cannot change how we feel in response to certain stimulus, emotions control us. However, people have some control over whether or not they act on their emotions. Emotions at that given moment can influence our actions.... [tags: Emotion, Feeling, Control, Psychology]

- Everest 1 Everest 1 was conducted using Computer Mediated Communication (CMC); communication was less fluid as it took place through a provided chat box within the simulation running in real-time. The proposed theory by Wainfan et al. (2004) meta-analytical study was proven plausible as what had occurred during the experiment became apparent, ‘reaching towards a consensus and resolving conflict in a democratic manner was difficult and took considerable time’. The fast pace of text messages was one contributing factor to this as it was difficult to read and keep in track.... [tags: communication, team work, social media]

Conflicts may arise from tight deadlines and short tempers, but most team members may not know what to do. "Despite the inevitability of conflict, many of us go out of our way to avoid or suppress it" (Engleberg, 2006, p. 147). When working in a team environment, co workers must find effective solutions for the numerous conflicts that may arise.... [tags: Team Conflict Resolution]
