This was 2nd volunteer at monroe communitiy elementary school. This was quite hard time. I was working with 5th grade students. We had homework time. They were doing their assignment, and when they had some quetions, they asked to volunteers. I was trying to answer their questions. Because they are just 5th grade, It's not that much difficult to answer the questions. For example, they seemed to learn graph. so one of students asked me what title of this graph is. At first, I was very embarrased when he was asking because I'm not good at english. but I knew the answer. but I felt relieved, cuz knew the asnwer. so I taught him.
They were sometimes very funny. but sometimes they were saying inappropriate words in class. They are not supposed to do that! When they said something about smoke or gay, I was very embarrassed and didn't know what to say. I've just said "No, you were not supposed to say that." I have to learn what to say when they say inappropriate words !
last time, I was trying to remember some students' name working with me. and they called my name! So I thoght We were familiar enough each other to remeber each others name. so, I expected. but they were not!! Because I'm going there biweekly :[ anyway I was depressed!! So I'm gonna try to be good friends with them. I'm trying to be better volunteer to them.
and we were playing soccer. I've been playing soccer since high school. I think I'm good at soccer. so they seemed to dislike me cuz I was so good player.
I think each time the volunteer work is so worthy even though it's tough as a forigener! This is why I believe I am learning something through volunteer. I would love to volunteer there. I can't wait going there.
