We are thrilled to share the next post in our Kindergarten Countdown Camp (KCC) summer blog series that kicked off in Waukegan on June 19th. Up next, we have Nicole Jones, KCC classroom volunteer, sharing her reflection on the first weeks of camp:
My role at the Kindergarten Countdown Camp is assisting teachers with any extra help that they might need to teach the students.
The most memorable part about my involvement in the Kindergarten Countdown Camp is when a student was playing with legos and wanted to count them and was so excited. It is just one example of how happy all of the kids are to learn and it is very fun to watch them learn.
All of the teachers have impacted me because of how much they care for their students. They work so hard to teach the children and help them to succeed.
I think that the Kindergarten Countdown Camp has a great impact on every student who goes to it. They learn so much from their ABCs, working well with others, raising their hands, and so many more important things.
Education to me is something that is so important. It is something that you control and cannot be taken away. Knowledge is an amazing thing to be had and something that no one should take for granted.
