It’s the little things.
July 21, 2016

Hello everyone!

I think it is fantastic that this program requires us to complete ten hours of community service. This was a great opportunity for me to give back to a place that has given so much to me. I split my hours between summer gymnastics and the Tulia Child Development Daycare Center. Both have a very special place in my heart. I thought I would give back by doing something that I love and enjoy.
I was in gymnastics all through elementary up until I graduated. I decided to help my teacher, Miss Sheri, for a few hours and had a blast. She has three year olds all the way up to high school aged kids. Miss Sheri told me that I was a great help because I knew what I was doing and could actually help the kids. Helping with summer gymnastics was special because I was able to give a little back to my teacher and all that she had given me growing up.
I spent most of my hours at the Tulia Child Development Daycare Center. I worked at a daycare in college for a year and a half then I pursued a degree in education and thoroughly enjoy teaching fourth, fifth, and sixth graders about math. When I arrived at the daycare, this little boy came up to me and asked me to hold him instantly. The next day, a little girl asked me to braid her hair. Apparently this was a big deal because she never ever lets anyone fix her hair; I felt really special.
I also helped with cleanup after dinner one night at orientation. The staff said it helped tremendously and made a big difference that we did that one little task. I love seeing people smile and make their day because I’m helping out. It’s the little things that truly make a difference.
Also, I was not allowed to take pictures at the daycare so I decided to show a neat picture of the monument in Tulia, Texas.
