Generations of Learning, Woonsocket, RI

Feb, 2013

As per the February blog topic request, I spoke with with Carol B., one of my fellow Americorp members about her service.  Carol works in a first grade class  at the

Coleman Elementary School here in Woonsocket. She says that she’s seen significant progress of the students she’s worked with since October. I visited her classroom, and I was very impressed with the samples of writing I saw posted on the classroom wall. Carol’s students appreciate her greatly. They often make artwork to give her as gifts. If she is out sick, they miss her.  She has developed a close relationship with all her students.  They see her as a second mother or grandmother.  Carol says that her years of experience in social work, teaching, and parenting have served her well. She feels gratified that her work has had a positive effect on her students’ lives and hopes that it  will continue to influence them for many more years.
