“I am glad that you have this kind of program to help us. All the teachers I have known have a lot of patience for me and my classmates, and always help encourage us to achieve our goals. I want to say ‘Thank You’ for all the lessons you taught me and I thank God for all the volunteers and teachers that have patience and gave us confidence. Thank you for everything. I am so grateful. God bless you.”
