Relationships Between Consultants in the Writing Center
Last year, I was brought into a new family. We weren’t the usual family though, all of us with different appearances. Some of us with dark skin and some with light, some with blue eyes and some with brown; however, none judged. Not only were the appearances different, but the interests were too. There were some brothers and sisters who played instruments, some who did art, and some who gave their all for sports. There was one thing we all had in common though; we were all there to write. We all were asked and confirmed a part of the fine Mattawan High School Writing Center Program. We grew with each other, accepting each other’s weaknesses and helping grow each other’s strengths to become stronger. Like a family, we compromised, inspired, and loved one another.
As the year school year came to an end though, the seniors graduated, and changes came into place. It seemed as if the family relationship we once held at the Mattawan Writing Center was beginning to fade. It changed from all of us being in one classroom, spending every day as a class, a team, and a family, helping other students further their writing skills and helping each other while writing creative and professional pieces for the class. When the new school year came around, the writing center class was split into six different hours of the school day. However, we enjoyed the time we had together. The adjustments made in the Writing Center this year caused many changes between the consultants, this caused the relationships to transform along the way too.
