Engagement ~Jasper Chartener

Some things that I learned about being engaged in service work this year, was that it doesn’t take a lot to feel engaged. I learned when I went around to visit the fourth-grade classrooms. My initial thoughts were that I would resemble a Charlie Brown teacher uttering complete nonsense with no one listening. However, to my surprise when I walked into the classroom with my partner, we instantly had the eyes of all of the kids fixed on us. Throughout our presentation of our key points, all of the students were actively listening to us, using both eyes and ears to take in what we had to say. They asked great questions and I left the room thinking that I had made a difference and after a few days, the can amount increased heavily.
