I have been blessed beyond measure to be given a very special woman as my student teacher as I continue my journey in becoming an elementary school teacher. Not only is she a great teacher but she is a strong and inspiring woman.
This year is her 24th year teaching first grade and for the past 23 years the first graders have eaten at 11:00am. This year the first graders do not eat until 1:00pm. Although their hearts are as big as the moon, their stomaches are so little. Every morning we take a snack time, which my teacher so graciously pays for out of her own pocket because there is not money within the school's budget for snacks and many of students can not afford to bring in their own.
All I am asking of you is to skip that morning Starbucks and donate $5 to our hungry catepillars.
