The energy and enthusiasm the children bring with them to the center daily is remarkable, somewhat overwhelming at times and usually pretty loud, but a lot of fun! On any given day I hear my name being called more times than I thought would be possible, but I find that flattering (mostly). After an afternoon of teaching classes I am usually completely beat, but very happy.
This is truly a job that does not compare with any other job I have ever had. Besides working on various administrative tasks, playing with the children and teaching I also communicate with the children’s’ parents on a daily basis, and that can be somewhat intimidating. I am constantly reminded of the responsibility I, and IHF as organization, has been granted as these parents allow us to educate their children. All it’s an intense experience, but in a good way.
