I know what you mean. We have a lady who works here from Nicaragua who is
much the same. She had to go home for a while to take care of a sick mother.
I think she's trying to save enough to bring her over here. It's so great
when kids come through that way-and wonderful that they have caring teachers
like you to bring out the best in them. Have a great weekend. Linda

Thanks, Linda. My heart just goes out to her. She is so sweet and
cheerful. Though I speak VERY little spanish, and she speaks very
little English, we do communicate. It gets pretty funny sometimes. I
don't know how she does what she does. She can only work 3 days a week
because she has to stay home to take care of them. I wish I could write
her a check for a lot of money. I would if I could. It has been very
heartening to see how the kids responded to this request. When I first
told them about her, some of the kids just wanted to clean the room
instead of making art, lol. imagine! I had to MAKE them stop cleaning
and do their art! (that only lasted a week or so, lol)
