Our urban district has many students whose parents suffer financially. Poverty does not discriminate and the same can be said of natural disasters like hurricane Sandy. Financial problems always generate other problems, which often generate even more problems. It is a cycle that does not end, hence the poor gets poorer. Just like donors can inspire teachers, teachers can inspire students and parents. It is our job to bring the community together to build a better future for the next generation. I am convinced that small things such as a picture of a preschooler can bring tons of happiness to parents. Seeing the child smile is priceless, this is the same smile that gives hope and love. Preschool is where things matter the most, as it is the start of the students active contribution to the community.
