This July I worked with GO Project to help provide extra support to children who were falling behind in school, often due to educational inequity. I worked in a classroom of students entering the fourth grade and helped to improve their math and writing skills. We mainly worked on multiplication and division and how to properly structure a paragraph.
Working with GO Project was an extremely enriching experience. I could see the change in my students abilities from the beginning of the program to the end. Along with working with the students, I also participated in daily professional development sessions where all the student interns discussed issues in our society including educational inequity, micro aggressions, and how to make a difference.
GO Project works hard to fight educational inequity in our school system, and I enjoyed working with them this summer.
