Pen Pals with WIT Program
From an initial sense of admiration for the talents of their pen pals and/or surprise about the student’s immediate openness, the seniors noted in April how each match seems to connect with aspects of each other’s lives.
Once again in May we shared experiences and comments about the connections and “conversations” they were having. In addition, we had a lengthy discussion about “fitting in”, following a recognition of times we might have felt uncomfortable with our connection to a social group, based on our backgrounds. The group has grown in trust with each other based on their sharing of themselves in relation to their pen pal.
