There are times when I am just so proud of the colleagues that I work with. Today was one of those days. A year ago we had a vision for a tutoring center in one of our toughest neighborhoods. We had been talking about it for years and then one day, we just said, "Let's quit talking and do something." That's all it took for Liz Duncan and KK Cherney to start. Over the last year they have partnered with Beach United Methodist Church, The McKenzie Wilson Foundation, the middle and high schools in the area and the managing organization of the 1000 mobile home community.
I guess the point is that I work with some incredible teachers. They saw a need and were willing to do the work to make it happen. I guess what I've learned is that dreams really can come true!
