Working with Jusoor has definitely been an eye opening experience. It greatly emphasized the importance of education. Not only was I teaching the kids, they also taught me that even the smallest things that we often take for granted can put a smile on their face.
I came into Jusoor not knowing what to expect, however I was proud of the extent to which the kids wanted to learn. They were eager to be given the opportunity to expand their knowledge. We had a word of the day in our classroom, and one time I forgot to write the word of the day on the board. And so, many of the kids reminded me eagerly to present them with the word of the day. Arts and crafts was a favorite in my classroom, as was the classic game of hangman.
Overall, my experience with jusoor has been one that was near and dear to my heart. The most important lesson it taught me is that kids will be kids, regardless of whether or not they are refugees.
