A couple weeks ago, a 3rd grader I volunteer with looked at me and said…

“You you you will ch ch change my life, you will will will will te te teach me to read.”

What an enormous responsibility tutors have.  I hope he’s right.  He works so hard with me, jumping up when I walk into the classroom, never looking at the clock or trying to redirect my efforts.  I’ve had to cut back on my volunteering, which is heart breaking for me, so now I often work with two boys at the same time.  They support and guide one another and have become comrades of accomplishments.  This is why, I do, what I do.
