Junior Achievement: Experience

By: Kristen Rodrigues

Junior Achievement (J.A) has been an extraordinary experience for me. Working with the first graders in Ms. Orsi’s class at Arlington School was complete joy. They are motivated and are always willing to answer questions; I know Prof. Star Ciccio wishes some college students were like that.  I am so glad that I was able to volunteer for this program it has given me patience and very good problem solving skills. No classroom can give you this kind of experience. I know that these skills will help me in my career in the future and even in college now. Maybe it will even  help me with my younger siblings. J.A has to be one of the most fun volunteer programs I have done; teaching the younger children is a fulfilling feeling.  I hope I have the chance to do it again.
