This morning, I arrived in my classroom to find the note pictured here on my computer.

In case you cannot read the actual image, here’s the text of the note:

Hello Mrs. Watkins,

Please accept this $20.00 donation for some supplies in reference to the students from Africa.

I saw your video on the AISD website and it’s a blessing how involved you have been to those students on the other side of the continent world.

You are a true blessing Mrs. Watkins.

The generosity of my students, colleagues, and those of you outside of the school who have donated continues to amaze and inspire me. On behalf of the kids I’m visiting in just a few short days, I thank you. Next week at this time, I’ll be leaving the school in Entebbe after another great day of teaching. I could not have done this without all of you.
