PAL May 2007

During my first year of long-term substituting at Gardner Road Elementary, I taught a student in great need of support and extra care.  I decided to mentor him through the PAL program.  We spent much time together working on social, academic, and personal growth.  I was deeply upset when the PAL program ended, but I continue to keep in touch with Dakota.

Dakota stayed after school and studied and played on the computer.  We then went to the mall arcade and had dinner in the food court.



Dakota stayed after school and studied for a test and made corrections to another test he had failed.  We then went to Tanglewood Nature Center museum and trails.  Afterward, we had dinner at Denny's (his choice).

I drove Dakota home so that he could stay after school and participate in intramural sports.
