In what ways do you do well in this experience? What personal characteristics help you do well? What is difficult for you?
I believe I do well reading to the children and communicating to them throughout our activities. I try to keep them engaged. My sociable and empathetic characteristics are what help me do so. However, it is difficult for me to get the students to interact with each other and not just me and my fellow volunteers.
What struck you or stayed with you today?
The lack of students attending struck me today. Less and less students are coming each week.
I feel like I am making connections with the few students who do come, but there are a multitude of students who do not show up anymore.
