I love the atmosphere of excitement and yearning to learn in the classroom when I enter. The students bring an energy that helps us teach Take Ten effectively. The most rewarding part is when the students and volunteers form a strong bond of friendship that becomes a positive force in their life. Every student deserves an opportunity to live in a violent free school and neighborhood zone. When students from around the area schools gather together for the Take Ten festival, it will be amazing.
