    Long Yellow Buses

    There were a few poems I liked, but this one caught my eye because it reminded me of my positive experience working in the Syracuse community though SU's Literacy Corps. I tutored pre-k and kindergarten at Dr. King Elementary and McKinley-Brighton for the past two summers.

    I spent the majority of my time reading with the students, doing art projects, and making myself available for any tasks needed. It was a rewarding experience that I shall continue to cherish for the rest of my lifetime.

    One of the best aspects of working with the children was their ability to make every moment enjoyable. With my illustration I strove to portray the exact instance where the fun, quirky attitudes of my young students could shine through. The finished piece always reminds me of the good times I had working in the classroom. It brings a smile to my face every time.
