— Our November Ho‘ohana
Those of us who are parents are fully aware of the value of those teachers who share their lives with our children. They have an opportunity to touch our kids lives in ways that we want to, but know we cannot sometimes. Rebecca Thomas shares one such story with us for our Ho‘ohana this month. Mahalo Rebecca!
I feel like I’m coming a bit late to the party, but I’ve been rolling this around in my head, and very nearly gave up trying to figure out what I wanted to say. When I originally asked to contribute to this topic, I’d just discovered that I was working with students whose parents cared enough to send them to a tutoring center, but really didn’t care what happened beyond that. Sadly, the students reflected that attitude in their own self-confidence and work ethic.
