AOC-Academic Opportunity Center
At our school, we have many many high needs/at risk students. This year, as an ESL teacher, I see that need more so than I have in the past as a first grade teacher. So I have partnered with several of our high school clubs to create a homework/practice club. It's been pretty neat because our teachers refer students to attend and the high school clubs provide the volunteers to help the younger students out. The first two weeks were successful. Not only are we helping the elementary students, but we are helping the older students out by giving them the opportunity to get some community service hours and also in the end they will get letters of recommendations from me. YAY!YAY! YAY!
