As a classroom helper I gave up my lunch and recess to help Mrs. Miller with anything she needed in the classroom such as filing, cleaning or setting up activities for the kindergartens.

To this day I can still do many of the tricks we were taught but most importantly I can still recall one of the more important lesson that the team taught me; you must to your part on the team. All I could control on this team was what I did, how much I practiced, and the quality of work I put into each practice. The Ropers team taught me that if each person on the team did a little bit they could create something cool on their own but when you put it all together you can create something amazing. My experience of being on this jump roping team was so important because it allowed me to be able to do something that I probably would have never gotten the chance to do if I did not attend Gallimore Elementary school.
Even after I left Gallimore I still spend much of my time giving back to the school that taught me…
