5- Personal Paragraph (ABV Program Testimonial), don’t leave blank:
As a teacher, my goal is to nurture student growth both academically and socially. In bringing our students on a service – learning trip to Belize, our students have grown on a personal level and learned a little more about the world outside of New York City. I hope that our students realize that people across the world share more commonalities than differences.
