I'm the proudest mama hen you'll ever meet

Three things about my students' performance on Friday night:


1. Pictures







2. Videos
(these videos are each less than 30 seconds long, but I think they communicate just how powerful this whole experience was)

3. An Article
(that the amazing Laura Moore wrote for the SF Examiner about my kiddos--check it out here! She's so kind! And if you click on "subscribe," she gets paid more money). :)


Okay, done bragging on my little monsters!

Really touching. I knew I would tear up before I even watched the video. Thank you for what you are doing to help these kids. It's really important work.

Amazing work with the kids. I am looking for a job in sw right now and this makes me motivated to get back to work.

Hey love, about the urban outfitters music monday posts: they are directly from the urban outfitter blog. Just go to the blog, click on the link Music Mondays on the side bar. Then on whatever one you want you click on "permanent link" and it will have a embedded code you can use to re-host it on your site. That sounds confusing... but it really isn't I swear!
