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.
