Perceptions of Differences:

Perceptions of Differences Before: nervous, unsure, anxious, hopeful After: I felt more confident in working with students with disabilities My favorite thing was the relationships I built with the students. Students I was working with did not stand out from the crowd and enjoyed working in a fun, friendly, playful environment, just as their peers did.

Civic Engagement:

Civic Engagement I think that it is important to show schools support. Service learning at a local school gave me a real first hand look at how much a small amount of time can mean to an important aspect of our communities. can provide support for those who are on the receiving end and a sense of responsibility and accomplishment for those who are working with the community great way to become involved in something you wouldn’t have become involved with before. sparked an interest in being more involved with my community I would recommend the experience to others.

Final Thoughts & Reflections:

Final Thoughts & Reflections What others could do - volunteer - become educated - research Ways I could help others become involved - invite people to volunteer - share information on social media - share my experience with others Teachers are role models in the community - trusted adult - hidden curriculum - present many points of view - positive example of civic engagement
