The environment I work in, which is at Mendota Elementary, is a very fun and enthusiastic place to be. The staff work very well together and are always there to help each other out with anything. I have enjoyed every minute of the experience in after school. I can tell the students are getting a lot out of the experience. I do everything I can to make sure they enjoy themselves because I know for a lot of them, their home lives aren't something that many would want to be a part of, so I make sure I am putting all my attention towards them by interacting with them on a variety of things, planned activities, helping them with homework, and serve as a figure because that is something they need in their lives. Every Friday, I will go out and buy treats for them, something they may not get at all or as much at home because like everyday, I want them to have something to look forward to. It's a great environment to be in, and it's something I have really enjoyed.
