My Breakthrough Summer

As I stated in my last post, I spent most of my summer consumed by my teaching experience at Breakthrough. The experience I had this summer was nothing short of life changing. To me, this was a total surprise. This was my fourth summer teaching with this program, and I was sure that at this point there was nothing that could happen that could have such a profound impact on me. Well, I was wrong.

I am now more convinced than ever of the potential that lies within people in general, and my students in particular, to literally change their worlds. This year, the growth and progress made by my students blew my mind. This year my kids touched my life in such a way that I had to give them this public shout out.
