When you're here, you're family

The best thing about observing Mrs. K was that she obviously cared about her students. She helped them with career advice, and graduation. The students are able to discuss issues with the school, such as what lunches are offered at school, and rally together to change that. They also know Mrs. K's family, and babysit her children.

Not only that, but she cared about her school. She helped put together fundraisers and posters for events. She even painted a picture during the schools talent show for a lucky family! She knew she played an important role in the school.

The big reason she did all of this, of course, is because she is a part of a tight-knit community. She grew up in that community, and her students are doing the same. She knows what they go through at home. She does everything she can to care for them like family. I can only hope that I become a valuable part of a community like her.
