Here’s a particular heart melter. Kids from Harriet Tubman School on Algiers Point (just across the bend in the Mississippi from NOLA and the French Quarter) sends love to NYC.
Here’s the note I got from one of the teachers.
Wanted to pass this on to you, as I thought you would appreciate it:
I’m a 4th grade teacher here in New Orleans. I work in Algiers at Harriet Tubman Charter School. My students were very young, but many of them have horrible memories of Katrina. I moved here in the wake of the storm to teach and haven’t left, and am currently a full time graduate student at Columbia’s Teachers College in addition to teaching full time. my summers are spent in New York, and many of my friends in my cohort have lost everything. We sent them the following email yesterday, please feel free to use the pictures to share the love on your blog.
I hope everything works out for you, and that you can make it home safely!
