I invited Mrs. Smith to speak to our juniors at our site. I work at a continuation high school where many students are disengaged. I knew Mrs. Smith’s message had to be powerful to resonate with our students. The moment she began speaking, I was impressed with her message. She told them to, “sit up straight, pick your heads up”. She talked to them about a second chance. This is exactly what our students needed to hear. Mrs. Smith is such a positive, enlightened role model. Our students appreciated her inspiring words. We would love to have her come and speak to our students again.
