Jordan Jordan loved this book! The title of this book caught my attention, so I showed it to Jordan and read the title out loud. He asked “are you going to open it?” I handed him the book for him to open it, but he quickly returned it to me and told me to open it. We joked around by passing the book back and forth until we finally took it back to our table to read.

The High School Tutors. They assisted us and Ming.
Overall, I enjoyed completing my field work at The Learning Zone. The program was running smoothly each time I arrived and the students were aware of the rules and the routine of the program. I love how the program helps high school students learn about the education field while they complete their needed community service hours. One of the things that stood out the most to me was Mingh’s classroom management skills. Everything had an assigned spot and that helped the program run better!
