Summary of Internship

At Vicente K. Tibbs it is very important to have patience in order to deal with the kids. Since the kids are so young many times they still do not know what is wrong and what is right. My day started out at ten and it would consist of spending time with the kids. Throughout the day I was busy reading books to the kids, helping the kids with sorting activities, and serving them the food. From this internship, I was able to learn the different procedures that had to be followed for the kids’ well-being. I recommend this internship for people that have a love for kids and are interested in a career dealing with children.
