so the first day of school was really stressful and hectic for us, especially the freshman! which is why i think direction connection is such a great idea. as a teacher cadet, we helped students(mainly freshmen) find their classes and lockers. i worked with Sarah G. and Sarah H. they were really fun to work with.
but some kids, you could tell, were reluctant to come ask us for help. you could somewhat tell they were too scared to talk to us, or they thought we were trying to trick them by telling them the wrong directions. most of the kids who i could tell were lost i had to personally go up to them and say, “hey, are you lost? let me help you.” also some people were a little too friendly and acting stupid. like this one random guy looked lost and i was like, “do you know where you’re going?” and he said, “yeah, but would you like to escort me there?” I was like, “EWWW NO!” so that was something kind of interesting that happened to me during direction connection.
direction connection was a very fun learning experience. it abled us to act as leaders by helping our peers. it was a great way to start the year off as a teacehr cadet!
