"We work as a whole group to accomplish our achievement that we have set."
Meet Karamri. He is going to be a fourth grader at Calvin Donaldson this upcoming fall, and we got to sit down with him and ask him a few questions.
Kamari has been involved in the Bethlehem Center's "Read to Lead" Summer Academy.
Check out the interview we had with Kamari, below:
A moment with Kamari
Q: How do you like the Beth summer camp?
A: "I like it because they don't just push you to the limit to learn more, but they give you the opportunity to still have fun and learn at the same time, and that they [understand] you and understand that some stuff is hard, and you might not know it yet, and they will help you so you can be ready for the next grade."
"So you can be one of the smartest kids there."
Q: Do you have a favorite class here?
A: "I would say math because they push you to the limit to learn your multiplications, your divisions and fractions."
"They want you to do your best and show what you know even if you don't know some stuff. And if you don't it's ok and they'll teach you."
"They [teach us] in a way that we can comprehend and do it at [a] pace that we're comfortable with in the way that we want to do it, and with the material that we want to use."
Q: What would you say to someone that told you that you should give up every time that something is hard or you go through hard stuff?
A: "If it's hard and it knocks me down I would get back up and still try to do it. I would do my best to get past it and if I can't I'll ask for a little push."
Q: Is there anything that you want to accomplish at the Beth Center summer camp by the end of the summer?
A: "I would want to learn how to be a photographer or make art."
