Thanks….

Mr. Richardson, for writing about what I do here  and other kids like me and the teachers who help them. I’m sorry my map reset yesterday! It archives once a year, and yesterday was my anniversary. Because of everyone’s help and the support they give me, I think I’m going to be speaking at the World Games and Special Olympics this year. I’m really excited about this and just starting to learn more. I’m grateful for the people who notice my hard work and the principals, teachers and kids who do even more than I do.

Today, I helped my friend Sarah. She is in my writing camp, and she did a drive for the International Institute, asking all of us to donate personal hygiene items like soap and shampoo and lotion to their refugee program. I collected these things and will be delivering them for her, because she lives really far away. I’m also donating a lot of things myself. I will also be donating clothes to the Depew Middle School clothing drive for Compass House.

Nina is grateful for our dad. He gets up early to take her to practice and got real cold outside today putting up our Christmas lights. What are you grateful for today?

    That is just way too cool! Congratulations, and please make sure you let us know all the details. Your story is inspiring a whole bunch of people to think about learning in a different way, and I really appreciate you letting me spread your good work around. Keep it up!

  3. Hi Laura. I found out about your blog from reading Mr. Richardson’s article. My MS & HS students have created blogs around the theme: “We must be the change we wish to see in the world”. I hope you don’t mind that I am sharing your blog with my class. Feel free to look at our posts and comment if you’d like. Our class portal is http://vcs.21classes.com. Best of luck to you,
    Mrs. Cassinelli
