Moving Forward

So another month down in the program and it only feels like a week has gone by. It has been a pretty awesome semester so far and I can only see it getting better. Another block exam has gone by but this one was definitely harder than the last. Other than the program I have continued to volunteer at KIPP. We have been able to help the teachers better equip their classrooms with the proper supplies for their students. Other than volunteering at KIPP I have also had the distinct pleasure of beginning to volunteer as a tutor at The New Orleans Charter Mathematics and Science High School. I am currently helping students in Algebra I through different problem sets in class. I also have the chance to talk to the students about how important and cool science and math can be. I feel like this really gives the students a chance to see what they can accomplish through higher learning. I have also been coordinating with the teacher to get a better grasp of what exactly she would like the students to accomplish and which students need the most attention going forward. Other than the volunteering and school New Orleans has been an absolute blast.

Until next month NUJI out
