A+ program gives students new view of education
Tuesday, January 31, 2012
For nine weeks, Tonisha Wofford spent the better part of 90 minutes each school day working with a student struggling with English, and with his personal finance homework.
As an A+ tutor in the English as a Second Language classroom, the JCHS senior offered one-on-one time with anyone who needed help.
Although that term is over, students from that class still happily greet Wofford in the Jefferson City High School hallways.
“At first, I was scared, working with high school kids,” Wofford said. “But it made me feel good to help someone else, and they appreciated it.”
