Introduction to the Host Setting This project was completed with the community of Eagle Harbor located in Fleming Island. Fleming Island ranks among the wealthiest zip codes in the Jacksonville area, placing second after Ponte Vedra Beach. Fleming’s annual income for a household is about $87,000 for a household. In the neighborhood we are offered three different pools, tennis courts, and parks. In the neighborhood there are a total of 9821 households, and the community is still growing. Demographics of Fleming is 86% white and then rest is mainly African American.

Engagement Activities:

Engagement Activities A community need that I decided to address is the face that kids are not getting their daily dose of sun everyday. Activities that I incorporated into my service learning was the pool and parks, I will complete my 15 over the span of 3 days. The kids involved is a family of three kids, ages 10, 8, and with the 5 year old having down syndrome.


GETTING CONNECTED To find this family I spent a day at the pool talking to parents about the service learning project I needed to complete.

Service in Action:

Service in Action

Perceptions of Differences:

Perceptions of Differences At first I was intimidated to work with exceptional children, they always have intimidated me because they can over power a little girl like me. Now I feel more comfortable because she was a kind-hearted, happy going little girl, she never let herself get down about anything. Watching her get bullied was the hardest part of the service learning, but she stayed strong.

Connections to Your Course:

Connections to Your Course I am enrolled in EEX 3241 with Dr. Dan. I learned that keeping a positive tone is very important. Bullying has become a larger issue in today society.

Civic Engagement:

Civic Engagement Civic engagement presents us with an opportunity to transform our communities. Through active participation in our communities we are able to identify and address social challenges that are specific to our society. I embrace the idea of service learning because when you are actively doing something you personally see the impact you have on the children and community.

Final Thoughts & Reflections:

Final Thoughts & Reflections I will create a facebook page to allow for more service time and allow students to come along and help me watch and interact with all the children. We as teachers build the community to become a better place, we are pat way responsible for how to students act outside of school. We should aim to shape our students in the correct way.
