And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)


 "A man on the beach where thousands of starfish lay dying in the sun saw a girl tossing them into the sea, one by one. “Why bother?" he asked. "You won't make much of a difference." Tossing yet another starfish into the sea, the girl said, "I made a difference to THAT ONE." ----Loren Eiseley. 

One student at a time, educators can make a difference!
