Cambridge student reflects on her internship


My name is Rode and I am originally from Haiti. I am in 11th grade at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. As part of the Enroot program, I am working at the Harrington Community School. This school is a place where elementary school kids come after school to learn and have fun. I help the teacher make sure that the kids are safe. I also help the teacher to make sure that the kids are following directions and answer questions.

The most interesting parts are playing with the kids. It's interesting because I get to know the kids and they are all very different. For example, some kids are better behaved than others. I learned how to connect with kids. I learned how to be responsible. Also, I learned how to work with teachers and staff. While I am working with them, I get to improve my communication skills.
