I believe in supporting the community where I live and volunteer each year for the Junior Achievement organization. This fall, I had the opportunity to teach second grade for a day helping the students learn how communities work. It was so much fun, but boy was it a challenge! At the end of the day I was so tired yet in awe of the work that our teachers do every day to prepare children to become responsible and educated adults who hopefully one day will contribute their own great things to the communities they live in.
I feel great when I can help others and it helps me remember that the most important things in life aren’t “things” at all.
