    grad school I said Alright composition all the way What instruments do you play I m a percussionist so basically anything you can hit It goes from drum set to Latin percussion to Brazilian percussion to orchestral percussion down to a triangle Anything like that What are your favorite instruments to use to compose music I use a lot of hand percussion I try to incorporate a little more Latin elements in my composition process only because it helps me establish my voice or I should say my sound When people hear something they can already associate it with my music Oh that must be Jessica And that s actually how most musicians are There s something about them that when we listen to them we re like oh that s so and so If it s not hand percussion I like the vibraphone which is kind of like a piano but you hit it with sticks and it s made out of metal It s on a whole pedal system and it applies all the same concepts What do you compose for I do film scoring I do TV commercials and I do music libraries Music libraries are used a lot for basically almost everything you see on TV My undergrad advisor professor mentor everything did all the music no joke Eighty percent of what you see on the History Channel and HGTV is him It was cool to sit in those sessions and watch him He actually got me my first TV gig with MundoFox which is part of the Fox network but it s Spanish There was a TV show called Los Golden Boys and Mario Lopez and Oscar De La Hoya are producers of the show The show was about three upcoming boxers and their life stories He contacted me because he said You have this little Latin flair to it that would support the show well Then I got tagged with this Latin go to girl title So I did definitely over 100 tracks for their music library to use for the show Next thing I know I turn on the TV and oh my gosh that s my music on TV From there I think things just started opening up I think it s pretty cool doing all of that outside of teaching at NSU Sometimes I do music and I have no idea where it goes I just get paid for it and I m like Well I hope it s in good places What is your role with Mako Records NSU s new record label Some students have great ideas but don t know how to put them down so that s where my job as faculty producer comes in I m kind of like a facilitator but the students really take the initiative in producing good work How does your experience of composing your own music play a part in your producing role for Mako Records I try to take my

    the Bahamas the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico Last summer he traveled to Colombia for the first time and visited the city of Medellin I had the summer off from teaching and wanted to make the most of it and go on an adventure Burns said He chose Colombia because he had some friends who had visited before and had an amazing experience For six weeks I stayed in an apartment in the outskirts of the city near locals and residents in order to really experience Colombian culture and heritage I wanted to find out first hand what it was like to live and be among the natives In the first weeks of his stay in the city Burns said it was a frightening experience Shopping in the grocery store was a bit of challenge when it came to finding food and supplies He had to quickly adapt to the change in culture and language in order to relate and communicate with others in the city Being that only a small percentage of the people spoke English speaking Spanish was required for him to survive during his visit I spoke enough Spanish to get by and expressed my basic needs and wants especially at the grocery stores and restaurants Burns said In Medellin he visited several tourist spots such as Plaza Botero and the Metro Cable Ride Tour In addition he visited the local historic chapels and cathedrals Burns wanted to gain a vast knowledge and understanding of the language food traditions values and people in the region Every day was an adventure for me After the second week of my stay there the discomfort I experienced at the beginning of my trip quickly turned into comfort in this new environment he said He approached many of the locals and natives and had simple conversations with them He said that it was easy for him to approach people because of his keen sense of character and that the people he crossed paths with were cordial helpful and engaging They kind of figured I was a tourist and wanted to make sure I had a good time he said I also became friends with some of the locals and I still keep in touch with them today He also said that the modern transportation and malls stood out to him but what truly impressed him was the culture The people were genuinely warm friendly and hospitable he said I m pleased with the decision I made to travel to Medellin Twenty years ago Burns said the trip wasn t possible due to dangerous circumstances in the area but because of the governments strides in making it a safer place this was a much better time to visit Burns said that the culture and language barriers were the biggest challenges he faced but that challenges aren t necessarily a negative circumstance Sometimes experiencing and dealing with some challenging circumstances can bring positive outcomes for individuals if they stick with them and go

    hospital in Connecticut It was a time which today s young people aren t familiar with Poland said America had so many large institutions with thousands of patients receiving mental health care with a variety of diagnoses in one place As an attendant Poland worked in many areas of the hospital and was able to see everything from cases of substance abuse to psychotic behavior In one of the units Poland was frustrated with one of the psychologist s unkind bedside manner Poland said I wanted to further my studies and work in counseling and psychology because I was motivated by him I wanted to be able to work with people with sympathy empathy and sensitivity Poland s first full time job was counseling in a private all boys school in Indiana where it didn t take him long to figure out that abuse was occurring Poland resigned and tried to forget about the disturbing experience but when he found himself unable to he organized a group of former employees at the school and presented the evidence of abuse to both the school s board of directors and Indiana s public welfare department Thanks to his determination despite receiving opposition from the directors the school was shut down After working in two state hospitals and successfully closing a boy s school I remember thinking to myself What could be better than this Poland said Poland went on to earn a doctorate in school psychology from Ball State University and moved to Texas where he became a school psychologist and eventually became the director of the entire district s Department of Psychological Services During his first year as director several students committed suicide and dealing with the aftermath of their deaths became part of the inspiration for his first book Suicide Intervention in the Schools published in 1988 in six different languages Just before writing his second book Poland grew interested in more general crisis intervention not just suicide Immediately after the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 Poland was invited to the city as part of a national team to work with public school children who had been affected by the attack For 11 years Poland continued this kind of intervention work in the aftermath of crises throughout the country such as school shootings and bombings as the first Chairman of the National Association of School Psychologists At NSU Poland continues to promote suicide and violence prevention and believes that his 26 years of providing full time support to schools and students allows him to show to his classes how he lived the subject that he is teaching Poland allows his students to accompany him on some of his interventions in public schools and is grateful that he can still receive hands on experiences in counseling while also teaching NSU created the Suicide and Violence Prevention office shortly after Poland became a faculty member which he now co directs with Associate Professor Douglas Flemons They recently applied for a second federal

  • Faculty Spotlight: Carolyn Berger | The Current
    like a natural course for Berger because both her parents were grade school teachers and she also knew that she wanted to work with children So Berger took up a position as a school counselor in a small Minnesota school where she worked with students afflicted with mental and behavioral disorders This school was the last stop for these kids because they had already been expelled from all their other public schools Berger said There was a lot of one on one attention and these were the kind of kids who bit people threw chairs and threatened to kill you all day long Working with this unique and challenging student population allowed Berger to realize that students of all ages and dispositions simply need someone to be invested in them encourage them and demonstrate faith in their ability to grow and changed People expected them to fail and I felt like I made a difference and I wanted to continue that but on a more professional level she said She moved on to counseling in middle and high schools but surprisingly found that this was no easier than working with troubled students Before I was working closely with about four kids but now I was responsible for about 500 students she said As a guidance coordinator I had to meet their social emotional career and academic needs which was much more complex Moving from school counseling to teaching at the university level was a hard choice for Berger because she loved working with children But Berger realized that there was much missing research and evidence for the effectiveness of counseling and she wanted to resolve this discrepancy for herself Doctors and lawyers have been around for centuries but school counselors have only been around since the 1950s she said Whenever I was doing things as counselor I would look to find evidence based practices but that was difficult because there are many gaps the research Berger resolved to become an activist for the profession She became involved with the Florida School Counselor Association eventually becoming their governing board chair in 2014 and had the opportunity to advocate for school counselors in Tallahassee A bill was finally passed that changed the official title of Florida counselors from guidance counselors to professional school counselors an initiative Berger is particularly proud of People still call us guidance counselors and that s like nails on a chalkboard for me because they don t know what we do she said But we re not just guiding and telling students what to do She instills in her students at the Center for Psychological Studies her same mentality regarding the role of a school counselor In December 2014 she was invited to a summit regarding college and career readiness at the White House and was able to share the experience with her Principles of School Counseling class I must sound like a broken record to them sometimes because I always repeat the same things leadership advocacy and

    worked Boucher decided at that moment that she wanted to be a university professor and her parents were supportive but very surprised when she told them she wanted to attend graduate school I didn t come from a very academic family so even though both my parents went to college they were working people and didn t know anything about the subject I was interested in she said Boucher became the first in her family to receive a Ph D which she earned from Vanderbilt University in Tennessee After completing her post doctoral internship there she taught at Vanderbilt before coming to NSU She now teaches several psychology courses and much to her delight the same sensation and perception class that sparked her interest in the field so many years ago I learn something new every term in this class because students ask questions that stump even me sometimes Boucher said It s important for students to know that even though professors are experts in our fields we don t know everything and we re still learning all the time Students in her classes also participate in NSU s acknowledgement of the annual International Brain Awareness month during which they conduct brain demonstrations in the Parker Building and assist Boucher in her I Lobe the Brain sessions at the Alvin Sherman Library for kids ages 3 and up Boucher has children herself so she enjoys the brain related arts and crafts and also incorporates ideas from her kids favorite toys and activities I wrote a few Dr Seuss style books teaching kids about the brain and I read from those during the event before or after the fun activities Boucher said Boucher said if she could find the time and energy she might pursue publishing her books but for now she keeps busy with events at NSU She is the TEDxNSU coordinator which means each year she is responsible for getting about eight students and faculty members from a variety of departments to give creative lectures on anything from their research to internship experiences Video recordings of these lectures are all posted on the TEDxNSU website and a lecture by parasitology professor Chris Blanar was even featured on TED s main website last year Boucher herself collaborated with dance choreographer Elana Lanczi create a modern dance interpretation of sound as it travels through the ear Published in 2012 the video features a script written and narrated by Boucher I like to do all of these dorky things at work and in my down time Boucher said For example she recently earned a scuba diving certification through NSU She dives in her spare time in addition to hiking and doing advocacy work for the local homeless population She gathers groups of NSU students to volunteer at an annual Christmas in July event for the homeless Boucher is glad that she is able to include students in so many aspects of her work She said My favorite aspect of teaching has always
