The problem: Other students in the class come up to her. “Can you help me today?” they ask. She doesn’t have time to work 1-on-1 with everyone.
If only there were enough volunteers. Certainly many people aren’t available between 8 am and 4:15 pm (the school day and the after-school program time). But there may be false ideas that get in the way.
Adults may fear that they have to have a teaching background. They don’t.
They might think they need a lot of free time to help. But there are unfilled needs that are just 45 minutes a week.
They might wonder what it’s really like. So I’ve created a 2-minute video showing Ms. Lori’s experience at School 22.
