NNHS senior Kayla Spurgeon added that she could sense how teachers could become overwhelmed when there is more happening in their classes outside of children needing to learn basic academic skills.
“I wanted to be involved in the community through service projects, but this was so much more than what I was expecting. Each child has so many things going on; I really felt that I was able to help them, and their teachers,” Spurgeon said.
Goldstein said she helped kindergarteners play games, learn about interaction and work on numbers, shapes and reading, but she also discovered another way to help.
“I would walk in around snack time and I realized that the teacher was buying the snacks for the children herself. I figured that I should also bring snacks to help out, so I did,” she said.
“You cannot imagine the excitement and energy that Montie, her teachers and staff had for my students. It was unbelievable.” Amer said.
