158/365 See You Next Year

Today was my last day of tutoring at Booker T. Washington Elementary School in Tampa, FL. My church sponsors and coordinates a tutoring and mentoring program for the kids at BTW, and it’s been an absolute privilege being able to take part in the program this year.

My kid, Jose, is a great kid. Not without his own challenges, he’s a good kid and a good student. It’s a little tough considering he’s in a one-parent household, and I don’t think he gets the reinforcement and positive support any kid that age should get on a regular basis. My interaction with him this school year has been as much about turoring as it has been about being someone who is consistently there for him.

I know summer is a time for fun and vacations, but I am really looking forward to the next school year already so Jose and I can pick up where we left off this afternoon.
