While my children and their families were visiting this weekend, my daughter mentioned the moving story of Vidal and Mott Hall Bridges Academy featured by the photographer/writer publishing Humans of New York.
As a teacher of disadvantaged youth myself, I am inspired. Between the warm goodbyes with my family and the Superbowl evening, I am preparing plans for my school week. We start 3rd quarter and a unit on persuasion. I am going to find a way to incorporate this inspirational story. My students need to know that there is a world out there that also believes in their dreams.
I have tried to add a link to the fundraiser, in case anyone is interested. I hope I did it correctly, and I hope it is alright.
Let’s send the kids to Harvard!
