LISA J. MAILS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL EXPLORER PROGRAM

The Problem

THE COMMUNITY OR BASICALLY SCHOOL I'M HELPING IS LISA J. MAILS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. ME AND MY FELLOW CLASSMATES AND FRIENDS TEAMED UP TO TEACH A CLASS OF K-2ND GRADERS ART LESSONS. WE COULDN'T BELIEVE THE TURN OUT OF HOW MANY STUDENTS ACTUALLY SIGNED UP. THIS CLASS IS JUST AN EXTRA CLASS FOR THESE STUDENTS TO TAKE AFTER SCHOOL TO KEEP THEM SAFE AND TO LEARN EVEN MORE THROUGH A WHOLE NEW ASPECT OF CLASSES THAT CAN'T TAKE UNTIL HIGH SCHOOL.

Plan of Action

THE STEPS I'VE TAKEN TO BECOME APART OF THIS PROJECT WASN'T VERY TRICKY. I WAS OFFERED THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO AND TEACH A CLASS OF MY CHOOSING WITH A FEW FRIENDS ALSO. AT THE END OF THIS SEMESTERS PROJECT (YEAR OF 2008) THE PARENTS AND THE CHILDREN WANTED TO KEEP OUR CLASS ON GOING BUT IT HAD TO END. SOME PARENTS CAME UP TO US AND SAID THEY CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MUCH THE KIDS ADORE US AND HOW MUCH THEY TALK ABOUT OUR CLASS EACH DAY OF THE WEEK. IT FELT SO AMAZING WHEN YOU HEAR THOSE KIND WORDS COME OUT OF A PARENTS OWN MOUTH.
