My boy Devon has successfully completed the fourth grade, and I am happy to say that this has been his best year yet. He had a wonderful teacher in Ms. Eddings, and his new school, Denver Elementary, was a blessing. I am so proud of this little dude (who isn't quite so little anymore), and I am honored to watch him grow into such a kind and thoughtful young man. I have been asked to start tutoring his little brother, Kevin, next year as well. I met Devon when he was in the first grade, and I will start working with Kevin when he begins the first grade in August.
I leave Denver Elementary each week feeling better than I did when I walked in. If you have an extra hour in your week, please consider tutoring in the Memphis City Schools. It is no secret that these kids and their teachers need help. If you would like to make a difference and build a sustaining relationship with an amazing kid, contact Streets Ministries or Memphis City Schools about becoming a tutor for the 2012-2013 school year.
