Spit Balls are for High Schoolers - Volunteer Entry Week 5
This morning I went to North. I started my 2 hour Thursday experience by writing in the monthly activities on a dry erase calendar...and it was after this experience that I had to wash my hands due to the rub-off of marker ink.
It was in the bathroom that I first noticed the infiltration of spit balls on the ceilings of North High School. This observation momentarily brought me back to the days of spit balls, pogs, and cooties.
On a more serious note, upon my return from the restroom I was asked by a nice young gentleman to help him with his essay he was writing to apply for a scholarship. I was pleasantly surprised (as help is not always accepted with open arms) and began work on his essay. For the next two hours I was able to brainstorm ideas, proofread grammar, and personally chat with a new friend. The class bell rang and we joyfully high-fived as the essay we crafted was perfection! I was absolutely delighted to be of help at North this morning, and I can only hope that more of my volunteer experiences will be like the one today.
