Proud Moment

As you know, I tutor and teach alot! I feel like this is bootcamp teaching or student teaching. I really enjoy it and I LOVE to see when the kids are learning.

I want to tell you about three of the children that I am so proud of!

Anna - She is one of the nicest girls you will meet and a little quiet. She is in early high school and has been having issues in math. We have spent hours working on problems like (-1) - 3 + 4 =? or -9 + (-8) - 7 + 10 =? If you want to know how to do these problems when I get home, let me know and I will come over and teach you. Anna was determined to learn it. Frankly, she wasnt catching on. She would come find me to get help even when it wasnt time to study. We worked, and worked, and worked. And she got it! I am SO proud of her! She can to any problem I give to her! Way to Go Anna!

Sandra - She is a sweetie but has problems paying attention. We have been working on memorizing Bible verses. She has been working on memorizing John 3:16. Today she was able to say the WHOLE thing without my help! We had not worked on this verse very much so I was shocked that she could remember it.

Chinyama - He is the funniest and nicest boy. Every morning he practices reading with me. He is in 4th grade. Today he was able to read the entire story without my help! :) Every word was pronounced correctly and he even knew the tough words.

I am so proud of them! :)

  1. You can teach me how to do those problems!

    Everything sounds exciting over there! It's great to hear about all the children individually and how you have been able to connect with each and every one. I can't believe that in just 2 short weeks you have already learned so much about the children and have been able to interact with them in such powerful ways!

    I'm praying for you and for all the children!
