Did you find S-L, or did S-L find you?
I found S-L! I applied for a co-op with Service-Learning after taking a class that required me to tutor each week in a local high school. I want to work in higher education, loved the idea of combining the classroom and community, and was excited to gain valuable experience from the program. Now I’m an S-LTA and S-LTM, and I manage the S-LOG!
What S-L classes have you taken?
Sadly, none. But I did take a class just before joining the S-L family that existed within the partnership between the Northeastern Writing Program and 826 Boston, which is how I was able to tutor each week at the John D. O’Bryant School. Now this partnership is supported by the Service-Learning Program!
What S-L classes have you TA’d for?
What is your favorite memory relating to service-learning?
My first semester as an S-LTA was really, really wonderful. My students were all so sweet and the highlight of the experience was when they would come see me in my office to work on their writing.
What would be your biggest advice for a first-time service-learning student?
This will be a great learning experience for you, no matter the class or community partner. Open yourself up to learning about responsibility, and about the community you’re a member of!
If you were a television character, who would you be and why?
I think I would be Rory Gilmore from Gilmore Girls. She’s (a little too) organized.
What has been your favorite meal you’ve had at an S-L SL meeting?
One of the small groups brought in Bon Me. I had never had it before, and it was incredible.
What’s a fun fact about you?
I’m related to Mark Twain! Also my puppy is on her way to becoming insta famous. Follow her @chocolatechipchiweenie.
