As I sit here years later remembering the project, my school, my students and what kind of teacher I was then. As I reflect I am strict with the raw commitment I had to make a difference combined with youthful enthusiasm. I loved my students and was very inefficient at making a difference. Providing these materials not only gave me and my students what I needed to fill in the gaps of the missing supplies. It gave us the hope that things would get better.
When you know that others care enough to share their precious resources with you something happens to you. You feel hope. You feel part of the community. You feel that you are on a journey where you are constantly improving and you take satisfaction in that. You stop trying to be perfect and suffering over that. Your students share in this positive attitude and they work harder and start believing in themselves.
You are the gift and we appreciate you.
