Erin is an education student at Pellissippi State Community College who has been volunteering with Norwood community school’s tutoring and homework help programs over the 2014 fall semester.
Erin has a love for children and a passion for helping kids learn. She has spent over 20 hours this semester volunteering.
“I believe I have grown because of this experience. Working with these children and watching them light up when they understand what I have just showed them is a wonderful thing to witness,” Erin said. “Just getting to teach these students in a way that helps them understand has really given me a great understanding as to what I will be doing when I graduate.”
Erin got connected to this great experience through PSCC Service-Learning, which allows students to gain experience in their fields while obtaining community service hours.
