The weeks before the holidays, you gladly trade what little free time you have during the day to put in a little extra time with a student. You scour the web, Pinterest perhaps, for a better idea, a new tactic that will help that other student “get it.”

You love “your kids” dearly and think about them often over break. You wonder how they are doing. You know the details of some of their home lives. You know some are going home to difficult situations. You hope despite it all they get their Christmas wishes.
