Summer school

School has already begun this fall. It started for some kids a couple weeks ago— still the summertime to many people. When I was their age that would have been like summer school to me!

I think of going to summer school, and remember days of getting up early, cold, and waiting for a big yellow bus. I used to hope it would get a flat tire and never make it to mathematics summer school. But the bus always came, so off to school I went.

But it’s all okay in time. And when we have about a dozen 1st graders visiting the Wells Fargo History Museum for a tour, it creates a whole new set of summer school memories. As a docent who can be on the teaching end of summer school ( rather than on the student end), a new summer school experience is born.

The best part is the way the children report on their experience in the museum: They draw pictures! When I get their art, I feel so good. They thank me for the tour, but I should thank them for being so delightful !

This is what makes my job so rewarding!
