We arrived at Shine today to observe teachers; they were seeking feedback on how they teach! Mal and I were disheartened teacher Anala was absent today. However, it gave us another class to teach. Mal and I put our teacher hats back on and headed into a guided reading lesson. At the end of our lesson, we asked a question about what students would like to be when they get older. Our word bank of examples
students shared were amazing: teacher, police officer, lawyer, pastor, doctor, nurse, astronaut, and model. As the students poured their effort into drawing pictures of their future professions, it became clear to me that their hopes and dreams are real. Although they face extreme difficulties, these students will become what they hope and dream to be.
