for pediatrics cancer. They were amazing. Their strength and willingness to go all night long impressed me. My college all-nighters came flooding back to me ... whereas mine were flooded with runs to 7-11, cigarettes, coffee, russian, literature, lesson plans, more coffee, etc. Their's were flooded with dodgeball tournaments, video-games, zumba, walking tacos, ice cream, karaoke, laser tag, etc. They did such a great job.
We got to meet numerous families affected by this horrific disease, who's lives changed in an instant. I had the honor of teaching a few of these students and I am very happy to say some of them are still alive, 10 or so years cancer free, and going strong. I CANNOT wait until next year.
Dodgeball was harsh. I took a few to the face, one or two to my delicate ankles ... I am for sure recruiting for my team next year ... but what an experience. These kids put their weekends aside and came on in.
I WILL NEVER DENY ... I LOVE MY STUDENTS TO ALL ENDS.
a few for you to enjoy ...
