“I enjoyed working with kids with learning disabilities, as I was once in their place as someone with learning disabilities. It was great interacting with them and seeing the genuine enjoyment so many of the kids I worked with (mostly ages 5-7). I also got to see some of the teachers that taught me when I was a student at the school, which was very nice. ”
