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.
