Making a Difference

In the era of education reform, it can be a bit demoralizing some days to be a teacher, especially one who focuses on high-needs students.  Here is a feel good story written by a former ELL student turned Harvard graduate about an educator at his elementary school.  Appropriately, it it titled How one teacher changed the life of one child.  Enjoy!


  1. Lovely! I just heard Matt de la Pena speak recently, and had a similar message. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great story! As an ELL teacher these stories always give me hope!

  3. Beautiful, it gave me chills and reminds me of the poem 100 years from now.....
