“I love helping these kids,” Tyler Hall said after telling how much he loves helping at a Henrico school with his grandma, with elementary school children.

“I find it rewarding after a long day of work and these kids making me smile”

He helps out a few times a year and very much likes doing it.   “I know he just loves it there.”  Jake Hall said.

Hall wakes up and is ready to go, he gets all his things together the night before and goes off with his grandma for a day of volunteering.

 

Another thing that he does is that he plays soccer, its just a sport for fun and in his spare time but he tells “I’m quite good.” Its also his favorite sport he tells me, and is currently trying out for the boys soccer team at Manchester High school.

 

When Hall helps out with these school children, he does the things a anyday regular elementary school kid would do. “Yeah like I go to recess, lunch things like that, the things a kid would do in school.”

 

Its like he is a little elementary school kid but for helping purposes like with their English, if a student needs help Hall goes over and explains the things they don’t get.

 

Hes has been helping ever since he can remember he helps with English, Math, History, and Science but his favorite like any other kid would  say is recess and lunch.

 

“Its so much fun, I do everything with these kids, I’m a little elementary school kid”
