When a Genesee student suggested I bring a "Sweet Case" to the Philippines for a child in need, I thought that was a wonderful idea. The "Sweet Case" has traveled over 8,000 miles in my suitcase and I had the opportunity to deliver it on Friday to the Principal at Oro Site High School and some of her teachers. They will make sure it goes to a boy or girl in need.
I also brought other gifts - a parachord bracelet from Ms. Altman's class, I Love NY stickers, bookmarks made by Genesee students, READ wristbands, NYS quarters, and holiday letters written by Ms. Hares' students. Here are some photos that show how the children felt receiving them (click on the pictures to make them bigger).

I am a school librarian at Genesee Elementary School in Auburn, NY where I try to inspire students to be lifelong learners, critical thinkers and adventurers! In June, I am traveling to the Philippines with a group of amazing teachers from around the country as part of a Teachers for Global Classrooms Fellowship. I hope you'll join me on my journey!
