“Last fall my classes were primarily our most ‘at risk’ students. Not sure what they had really gotten from the class, I began asking students toward the end of the semester what they had learned most. One student said, ‘Mrs. Nichols, I now know that I have a future that I didn't think was possible. This has changed my life.”
