I have seen the results – emotionally, intellectually, and socially – as children grow throughout the year and it’s just amazing.
I serve to make a difference in the lives of my students and the community in which they live. The one-on-one tutoring gives me a chance to help these kids become confident and fluent readers. That confidence bleeds over to other areas in school and outside of school. Confidence breeds success!
Serving with Reading Corps and Math Corps helped move me to the next level. Today, I’m a sixth grade science teacher at Stanford Middle School in the Minneapolis Public Schools District!
I want to do my part to help our students gain confidence through literacy and travel on a college-bound course.
I get a sense of immense pride when the students make gains in the right direction and start to feel confident in the other aspects of their life and schooling.
I wake up every morning looking forward to the day, knowing that I’ll be contributing. I am preparing the children for Kindergarten and for their years in school after that. I love what I am doing.
I was surprised by the skills the children need – and can learn! – for Kindergarten.
