Ever since I was a child I always liked helping people out. Especially, kids who are younger then I. So, when I learned about the TAP program I knew that I wanted to be a part of. I found out about this program through another member of my congregation. She had gone through this program and found what she learned from the program to be helpful in a classroom setting.

In my classroom, there is a student who has special needs. From working with him I have learned a lot about patience and flexibility. Sometimes it is hard for him to focus so, when this happens I have to be patient and keep in mind that it is not his fault. I also have to be flexible, when my first idea does not work I have to move on to the next one. TAP has taught me these things and many more. I am proud to be TAP teen.
