A great big thank you to Gail1611 for organizing a donation drive for my
students. Since I met Gail, thanks to Getty, we have established a wonderful
friendship. She works in a rather wealthy suburb in Illinois and I work in
the West side of Chicago's inner city (98.9 % poverty). Gail has a very
caring heart and wanted to do something for my kids. She has worked very,
very, very hard to collect a wonderful assortment of toys, stuffed animals,
and gorgeous art supplies for our school. I am touched by her
compassion--and her students are awesome!
My Principal always starts our weekly meeting with asking the teachers about
"their moment of brilliance." It could be a student achievement or even a
teacher achievement. This is indeed our moment of brilliance. Thank you
a class act. Oh.. and THANK YOU , Getty!
