What is a favorite memory you have while doing your work?
Shortly after the 2016 election I was volunteering in a 5th grade classroom. The teacher had the students read articles for a social studies assignment and one of the students found an article explaining how Clinton might still become the President. The student showed the whole class his article and then the class started yelling with excitement and confusion. Amidst all the yelling another student came out of nowhere and yelled “I was reading about Emma Watsoooon!” Then the whole class went silent and looked at the boy with confusion.
