Outside of my placement is where all the real fun occurs. Since I work for a school district, I find that we all tend to be very serious being that we are making decisions that will alter thousands of students’ lives. I find that our cohort has the most fun in the kitchen or the infamous 742. In those spaces we laugh, debate, and give a boatload of advice on our current friendships. Seeing how we can respectfully agree to disagree is what I love most about this cohort. Our ability to be silly and still have heartfelt conversations that leave you thinking is what makes this program even more worth it. There is nothing like coming home after a long day of work to see people cooking and having a good time. All in all, there isn’t just one event that stands out to me but what we continuously do in order to foster community.
