Disneyland with my students!!

As a child, I remember my mom's favorite thing to do was take someone, anyone, to Disneyland for the first time.  Luckily, she also took me along.  I was always amazed how seeing Disneyland through the eyes of a first timer made me feel the same way.  It was a special moment. 

I am a special ed/resource teacher.  There are two students who I have worked with over the past few years.  Both have qualities that are exceptional.  One is the middle child of three boys.  He is considerate and compassionate about everyone around him.  Even though he has  had academic challenges, he has learned strageties to be successful. He has even found a job at 10, to make money to help his family.  

The other is a boy who is still finding himself.  He has had life challenges for all of his 10 years, yet has a smile that will make you mealt and a curiouseness for life that inspires me on a daily basis. 

Their general ed teacher and I have decided that we would like to take these two boys to Disneyland.  This is a place that neither one could imagine going. 

We need your help to take them.  Just the idea of seeing the joy and smile that this will bring reminds me of the joy my mom brought to so many others.

It was an amazing day at Disneyland. The excitement and wonder on the boys faces started at 6:00am and ended that night at 10:30pm. We had a full day. Pirates won out as the favorite ride. It was a day I will never forget. Thank you again to all who helped make this happen. Your generosity will always be remembered!!

So...We are planning to go in Wednesday the 24th of June...I have enough $$ for the three tickets (I have a annual passport so I don't have to pay for me) and about $150 for the boys food for the day. I have made a reservation at the BBQ place in Frontierland for dinner. I would love a little more $$ so the boys can get a small souvenir.

AGAIN...THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE DONATED!! DREAMS DO COME TRUE!!!

I told my two students today that I was taking them to Disneyland. They were both excited in their own way, one not knowing what to say and the other very humble. These two are deserving and I am feeling very fortunate to be able to share this with them...THANKS TO EVERYONE so for all of your donations...
