The second week of classes at YPSH has concluded and I am ramping up for week 3. I had a very motivating conversation with a student last Thursday. The student was working on a lab report and started talking to me about how he wants to go to the University of Alabama. I thought this was awesome because I had not seen any foresight or drive in this student before. In addition, I used this moment to get very excited for him and tell him that its going to be a lot of work but its definitely worth it. I hope to see more of these goals come out of the students throughout the year.
Note: the experiment I mentioned last week was delayed because I brought the wrong materials with me last Thursday.
