Since this spring, I’ve been going to the library a few times a week to serve as a Literacy Volunteers tutor. Monday morning Math Lab and, more recently, Wednesday morning Reading Roundtable have become a regular part of my schedule. It is not something I would have foreseen myself doing a few years ago, but it has proven to be a very positive experience. Lots of fractions.
In late October, I began working for the local Urban League’s after school program. Even more than tutoring, it is a new challenge with new rewards. My job is a combination of homework help, playground supervision (I’ve played more kickball in the last month than I have in the last 30 years), and driving a passenger van.
