I joined Brightlane Learning as a volunteer tutor right before COVID hit. When the Learning Assistant position became available, it felt like the perfect opportunity for me. I’ve volunteered with various educational organizations, as I believe that education can be an equalizer. Children do not choose the circumstances they are entered into, so if I can help them learn and give them my time and attention, I may be able to impact their future.
I believe that education can change the course of a child’s life. When given opportunities that may not have been presented to them in their everyday lives, children can flourish and begin to have belief in their own potential.
