Is there a special moment or a comment about that experience that youd like to share with the community?

I will never forget the time I worked on the roof! I challenged the students to raise a certain amount of money during Race for Education and they did! So we moved my desk up to the roof and I worked from there! It was so hot that day that I was happy when the students and teachers brought out water balloons and super soakers!

I am excited to embark on this new endeavor. I am looking forward to seeing how much the students have grown.
