  • School Update!

    Everyone,

    Not trying to start boring topics, but since I am in school and its consuming tons of time I guess that is all I have to chat about for now!

    Anyway, I have a few comments. Are any of you currently or (formerly) been involved in Community Service Learning (as my school puts it)?

    I have to be involved with two of them this semester and I am a nervous wreck about it. I am a representative my school and I want to genuinely help out but it is overwhelming. Here's why:

    In my Spanish class we are going to go to an elementary school were the students speak to us in Spanish and we help them with English (mostly grammar). I am nervous because my Spanish stinks and I truly want to help and am worried that I may do more harm than good.

    For my vics and criminals class we are going to work a local PD in various areas and I am bummed about that becasue I want to be a REAL cop but have to settle for a volunteer gig (not that there is anything wrong with vounteer work but...). I am trying to be positive about this one because of my situation with my last hiring PD. It is hard to go in a PD and know that I can't be a cop because of a medical problem. It is like opening up an old wound and one in which I cannot fix! On the bright side of this is perhaps I may find something here that may interest me that doesn't require me to be a sworn officer.

    Anyway, sorry for the rant but it is on my mind and my grade depends on my performance in these areas.

    Any thoughts appreciated if you can make since of the jibberish!

    Many thanks

    Going to a place where you have to translate from spanish into english will help you in your understanding of spanish real quick. There is nothing like not speaking ones lango to get your brain to function to the point of being able to speak and then communicate with them. I think that is going to be a learning experiance for both you and the students.

    As far as the working with the police I say if you can not be one of them then take what ever events helps you to become more aquainted with them and make friends in the police department. IT is something I like to do and I still go out of my way to talk and socialize with the police in my community. Besides the police need to be reminded sometimes that there are citizens out here that care about the jobs they do.

      Klar,

      Thanks for the response and I will definitely keep those suggestions in mind! It always helps to get another opinion once in awhile.
