Bonding Time - Shanice Smellie
while in tutoring training, the team was able to act out scenarios that might
be encountered with different types of students. It was hard to come up with solutions
on the spot but it was fun and we learned what to do in case a certain situation
were to arise. Many of the AOP student staff have been through different life experiences and we were informed that we will be working with students from various
backgrounds that will offer unique and different perspectives. As a staff, we
are all excited to begin working and getting to know these students. As mentors
some of the most important things we can do are listen, be patient and be open
to the students.
was an amazing day with the team. It was great to see that even while going
through our intensive training we were still able to have fun and share a
laugh. As the days pass we are no longer just a team, we are become a family.
We went for ice cream and had time to sit down, talk and get to know each other
on a more personal level. We realized that we have so much in common and enjoy spending
time with one another.
so excited to greet all the students, we are literally screaming with joy and anticipation.
The staff is working hard trying to get up all the beautiful wall and bulletin
board decorations. So far they are looking great. There are color markers,
crayons, colors pencils, and construction paper all over the lounge floor and everyone
is having a fun time. We are counting down the days and cannot wait!
