Later in the semester, I got assigned a student to tutor 1-1 at Armstrong Middle. The first day I went I was kind of anxious about going at first just because it was change and I had been accustomed to going to Christian World Mission. I was excited to work with older middle school, as I have in the past and love to work with 7th/ 8th grade. When I left though, I just felt so refreshed. It’s not like we met forever or knew each other’s life stories, but I felt like I had a purpose. We laughed and chatted about the school day and her struggle in science. The direct interaction holds each of us accountable. The office staff at Armstrong was so helpful to me. We shared laughs and I got to see a glimpse into their day. It reminded me of the sense of community formed within each school. I hope to be able to continue helping tutor here.
