Although this is three weeks later, I had an amazing experience being able to facilitate the EL/SCS Interviews! I was originally worried, but after the training and then the social opportunities that were made possible, I was at ease. Several times, I was able to see myself in the PNMs; I was definitely able to empathize with them and see their leadership potential. Being able to facilitate was definitely unique considering this is the first year that I was on the opposite side of the table. I definitely recommend volunteering for this and I will hopefully be doing this.

Today was a great day! I tutored several children with the ELA homework and their Math class work! I definitely recommend this volunteering platform!
Today was a good day. I tutored Aja in her fractional math and we spoke of several interesting factors on math. After the math, I assisted in the dismissal process due to the factor that several people were not here.
Today was a great day! I helped a group of students with their math homework, then proceeded to aid the office with their dismissal process. It was nice to see how their after-school system works.
Today was a little more difficult, for a few of the kids I tutored were not wishing to do any homework. Other than that, it was a productive day. I learned a bit about unique ways to subdivide.
It was one of the harder days, simply because some of the kids that I was tutoring were uncooperative; but Jackson did not have any work this time, so I sat down at a table with several students such as Charlie and Seth who were struggling with their electromagnetic worksheet which had two sides (several questions and an essay prompt). After that, I worked with another child who was very behind and helped them with their make-up which was over everything from math to literature.
It was great! I was a tutor in social studies for Jackson, who was learning about the Temperance Movement and the Women's Rights Movement. After Jackson left, I was a science tutor for the fourth graders who were learning about sound waves!
I had such a great time volunteering with these kids! I started off by tutoring kids: Jackson, Paxton, and Grace. I helped them with their long division algorithms and the area/pattern questions. After doing so, I then went outside with them and facilitated several games until it was time for them to pack up and go home. I look quite forward to going back and tutoring again!
For an early morning, I was surely running a lot. I was doing everything from propping up tents and tables to running individual water bottles for other volunteers. I was mainly stationed in the Red Zone, where Miles and I made sure that the entrances were secure and no one underage would be able to peek inside. I fixed tarps, exchanged supplies between the "Out Memphis" Board. We started at six, but I did not end until 10:15, where another individual had to relieve my position as Ticketmaster. If you are not wearing light clothing and athletic shoes, your feet would be really sore... Otherwise, it was a great time and I got to meet SO MANY great people.
