Afterschool Tutoring

I’ve started volunteering in an afterschool program. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to at first because I knew it would be even harder than teaching kids in high poverty. 

You only get one chance a week. Only a couple of hours. 

I knew I’d get attached immediately to their faces and their spirits. 

I was right. 

We read and we played and we joked and we learned. 

Yeah, this is what learning can be…


For the teacher and the student. 

It can actually happen.
