• "I had no real idea what the kids would be studying and the advanced nature of it was interesting and surprising."

  • "I did learn how to explain things in different ways, geared towards the child's individual needs."

  • "Even from this one question I saw how children need a lot of guidance when being taught and that you can't just throw a question at them and expect them to know how to do it. I also did not realize how much things have changed since I was in the fifth grade and how much more challenging it is now. When working out the problem sheet we were given earlier in the semester I found myself actually having to think through the problem and figure out how to solve it."
