Gail Wolkoff has been the director of the Educate Youth afterschool program since its inception and she has agreed to answer the same questions as her students.
1. What are three words to describe the 2020-2021 academic year.
Change: due to Covid and the continual public displays of hate there have been constant changes in academics, social interactions and emotions
Flexibility: due to the changes; I have had to be ready to make a change at any moment
Strength: it has been hard; I often stop take a breath and center to gain inner strength
2. What is it like for me to witness a student become a senior?
Amazing! I have had an inside view of the strength and sacrifices each student makes to graduate.
3. Benefit of having the clubhouse open during Covid.
I witness students working on academics and supporting one another. When they are not in Virtual Classes they are enjoying being together.
