I just received the following email which was worth sharing due to its encouraging content. Keep up the good work teachers. You never know when you are instructing a student who will grow up to pay it forward.

Dear Learning Link Coordinator,

I am a former Lodi public (Washington and Lodi High) and private (St. Peters) school graduate and I am now a teacher in New Jersey. It might be of some interest to some of my former teachers and classmates of some recent endeavors my students have embarked on. I teach in a largely Hispanic first generation school and we have had some success over the past couple of years. The message I hope this brings is that anyone can compete if given the chance and direction. Something I always have thought that my own education in Lodi provided.

Please see some of the success I have had with my students in middle school in a low income area of Urban New Jersey.
