"One of the kids came up to me towards the end of the 6 weeks and wanted to show me a book. It was about a pig that struggled in school, but met a teacher who encouraged her to not give up, even though people told her she couldn't do it. She said, 'That little pig is me and you showed me to keep trying and to love what you're doing!' I could have cried."
