So the other night the young women at Lansing Residential Center were pumped -- they were practicing dance moves for some kind of talent show at the facility. They were blasting tunes and bouncing around, and I was kind of timidly watching and trying to learn from them. Then one of the other REACH tutors taught me some Step moves and everyone was laughing and cheering us on as she and one of the residents and I were performing what I'd just learned.
Then after all that madness, I found out that the resident I've been working with for the past 6 months would be leaving LRC the next morning to head back home. She was so excited to be moving on, and I didn't think there was much of a chance she would want to sit down and do tutoring... but amazingly she wanted to do some algebra! When it was time to go, she said she wished she could take me with her back home to keep helping her out with math. I'm going to miss her.
