I’m not even needed anymore
From a leader:
Q: Students lead in U:PASS for a wide variety of reasons – to mentor, to gain leadership skills, to improve communication skills, to get educational experience, to see what it’s like working for UTS. What’s something you feel you have gained in one (or more) of these areas over the last fortnight? Why? (You may also choose another area if you wish!) 🙂
A: My biggest educational experience this fortnight was that I’ve done my job so well that I’m not even needed by my students anymore! In today’s session we formed a large table and the 10 students sat together around it. One of the students who has attended every week, who typically stresses out that she struggles with the material, knew all the answers to the questions and was teaching her peers all the concepts. The other students actually clapped and cheered her when she was getting everything right. One student said to her “you could teach the class”. I had a big smile on my face that the students had formed such good bonds with each other and also at the progress this particular student has made.
