With Support of After School Teacher, Mohamed Strengthens Communication Skills

November 2, 2017

Impact Stories

Mohamed can’t wait to play with his friends at P.S. 102 One World After School Program in Bay Ridge. Rewind. Last year, Mohamed was an English language learner, struggling to express himself and thrive in school. “Mohamed was so frustrated because he couldn’t verbalize what he wanted to say in English,” said his father Emir. With the help of the after-school and summer camp staff at P.S. 102, especially group leader and teacher Robert Terranova, Mohamed’s vocabulary quickly expanded. He soon had an easier time in the classroom and with his peers. “The transformation is remarkable,” Emir said. “He’s learned so much. Thank you.”
