These moments are what make teaching the best profession in the world and you know that what you and your fellow teachers do make a difference. The amount of support and donations that have come in within the past two weeks for the Ride Janie Ride fundraiser have been astounding. Students have, and continue to be, an inspiration in all that they have done to raise money. I cannot wait to see the final totals on Monday! </li></ul>
