Coming back here was so fun! This time, there was a health presentation from students at UT Health Sciences. All of the kids were so intrigued learning about how much sugar is in sodas, and what all they should be eating. After that, I helped some students with their homework. I helped a pair of second grade twins with their math homework. Then, I read Dr. Seuss books. I love coming to the after school program, and it’s exciting when they remember me!
As soon as I arrived at the community center, I was introduced to the after school program leaders and director. I immediately felt welcomed and comfortable. Then, we picked up the group of kids from their elementary school, and they had so much energy. All of the kids wanted my attention, and to tell me their name. I helped some of them complete their homework, and just had conversations with them. Then, we all went to play games and make puzzles. I got to be a kid again! I spent 3 hours at the after school program, but the time went by so quick.
