Day 1 of Service Learning
Hola amigos this is Ann and Tara. Today was our first day at our service sites. Overall I would call today a great first day of being at our service learning sites and we are all excited to go back tomarrow. Carol made it in today making our group finally complete. Tara wnd I were both at missionaries of the highway today, there they have a sensory room, a occupational therapy room, a physical therapy room, and two special education rooms. On site there is an orphanage, and a school that goes from Kindergarden through 12th grade. Our job was to evaluate and modify wheelchairs to improve quality of life of both the client and their family. It was rewarding to see the instant improvement just by modifying a wheelchair to better fit the client. When we got back from our sites we had dinner then discussed our highs and lows for the day. It was exciting to hear about everyones day and how they were all so different.
