  6. 7. Hey James, It was good speaking with you the other day. I am glad you enjoyed your visit. Tourism is one of the ways we are going to recover from the hurricane. New Orleans has such a rich culture. That is the reasoning behind our field trip the other day. We are 87% free and reduced lunch and our communities struggle with generational poverty. Although we live 20 minutes from the French Quarter, many of our students have never been! My next grant is to have my students create a walking tour of the French Quarter that we will post as a vodcast for tourists to download for free! Craig Howat
