It is incredible watching them learn and grow. I love being able to share my passions with them."

Seeing the expression they make and the twinkle they get when they master a new skill is such an amazing experience."

I started to really see the 'light bulb' moments while working with at-risk children and realized that all of us are excited to learn when we are interested in the topics! I love the relationships built, seeing the progress in each individual child, helping them build the confidence they need to be independent, and helping children meet their potential."
