A VOICE OF HOPE TO THOSE ABOUT TO BE FREE


I've been reading a friends posts and thought this might help those she's trying to help.lovemetouchme5 is a teacher dedicated to helping those in the Missouri Penal system get their GED,this is her life's work and she believes in what she's doing. These posts that are linked below are a few of her students close to getting their GED, but they feel they aren't smart enough and have low self esteem.She's posted entries from their journals for us to read and she wants us to giveTHEM an encouraging comment that'll help them to believe in themselves! She plans to share these comments to them, so maybe we can help here!
Please go and read these, the first explains this much better than I can, so read it and leave a comment for them not her!~
Can you help me here?
Student post #2
Life on the Inside...Student #3
This is something I really believe in so help'em out!

    Hey Spunky, when i saw this post, i thought: "anything for Spunky!"
    But then i realised that these guys were human beings who'd had a bad deal in life, and just needed some words of encouragement to do what most people take for granted - get an education. It is the one, sure-fire way of empowering people - educate them! lovemetouchme5 is a good person like you. You both fight for the underdog and i want to thank you both for this very grounding post. I wish all her students the very best. Ruby. xxx
Ruby, your words were wonderful to my students. I really appreciated what you did. I'm hoping that the other 50 some odd students in my class will be able to get to the same place these gentleman are!

Thank you Warm...The students really appreciated what you and the others had to say! I am what you called a very unorthodoxed teacher. I will do whatever it takes (within reason) to help them learn!!!
