My office on a regular day is not, in fact, an office at all. My office is a conference room tucked in an out of the way part of the school. It’s small, has no windows, and runs about 15 degrees colder than the rest of the school. Past its humble offerings, this office, to me, represents so much more than its four white, windowless walls. In this office futures are discovered. Hundreds of students have sat in the chair on the other end of the table and told their hopes and dreams to the girl in the swivel chair on the other side. When they come in, we are strangers, and when we leave that school at the end of the year, I will never see them again. But for that brief moment in time, we are partners together; both of us working together for the future. This office represents what it means to me to be a NiswongerCARE Advisor; two people working together, despite circumstances, to build a better future.
