I love the relationships ELA facilitators make with the students and creating a comfortable and engaging environment
My students having the aha moment and watching them learn the concepts through the activities.
“The ladies were very warm and engaging, the students were attentive once settled. The activities made students think a little deeper about themselves (it also had me reflecting and thinking about my own habits).”
Ms. Jones and Ms. Blake being patient with me means a lot more than they know.
What I enjoyed most about the ELA program is the open-minded activities, videos.
What I enjoyed most about this program is how passionate ya'll are. I can see ya'll are really trying to help us. I enjoyed learning about the G.O. SMART goals it helped me break down my goals instead of just trying to do everything at once. I learned that change takes time and I shouldn't trip on not succeeding the first time and that only I mold my future.
I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware. Well, I've never seen a king of beasts with quite so little hair. I’m gonna be the main event like no king was before.. I’m brushing up on looking down, I’m working on my roar.
