A Teacher Shares…

We are having a blast this year.  The seniors have been great–the kids adore them.  For some kids–they definitely need that connection with someone who shows genuine interest in them.  So nice.  
 
In this age of technology where kids are just texting each other–I have really been pushing conversational skills this year.  It is a nice way to have the kids practice having a face to face conversation that lasts longer than 2 minutes!
 
Looking forward to tomorrow’s session!
We look forward to creating many more sessions across many communities – helping our youth to strengthen their communication skills and providing them with the opportunity to form special connections!
