Senator John Hoffman visited Minnesota Transition Charter School’s own Banaadir Academy South Campus, toured the school and sat down with a second grade class to ask questions, practice a little magic and read students a story, Ayeeyo’s Golden Ruleby Mariam Mohamed, celebrating the benefits of being humble and kind.
Senator Hoffman told the kids, “People will respond well to people who are humble and kind. We need more of that.”
Senator Hoffman shared with students what it was like to be an elected official in Minnesota and some important ideas about the power of government. He passed out puzzle books and got them laughing with his magic tricks.
“You’re an important person, do you know why? You’re learning something every day.”
Providing these kinds of experiences and opportunities for students to engage with people and ideas is what Banaadir Academy is all about.Thank you, Senator Hoffman for sharing your time, humor and wisdom with students at MTCS Banaadir Academy.
