Experiences

It was so interesting and fun to go into a classroom and apply what I have been learning in my classes. I saw real change and improvement in my students from week to week which shows the real impact of the program in Provo schools. The kids have so much personality and were a joy to be around each week. I also loved the variety in needs so I could serve exactly where and when worked best for me. It was definitely the best part of my week.

It was incredible what his love for me and my love for him did to my day. I remember frequently being near tears, as I’d leave the building, just so happy to have been there for him that day.
