The Founder’s Story

Tears flowed as she read the online message sent to her by a student she once taughtmore than twenty-years ago.  It was the moment she realized what an impact she had made on the life of ayoung person she once taught in a small 4thgrade classroom.

Thisstudent had now become an adult who decidedto share her experiences as a student in this teacher’s 4thgrade class from more than twenty years ago. The young lady recalled how she felt as a young child to have a teacher who was kind and took a personal interest inher as a young girl as well asall the other students.  The young lady recalled some of the things she learnedthat were mostimpactful at that age and as a result, she was inspiredto study Government and Politics abroad in London, England.  The young lady expressed her hopes forbeing at the forefront of education reform in developing countries like Africa.  Reading this note from a student so far ago was a defining moment for Dr. Watson as a former teacher that gave her great joy and a renewed passion and commitment to impacting the lives ofyoung people around the world.

Actual Message:

“Mrs. Watson taught me in the 5thgrade when our first teacher left during the school-year.  I’ve thought about her often over the years.  I am now living in London, England and I am finishing a Master’s program at SOAS University of London in African Government and Politics. I remember Mrs. Watson particularly from that school year because we had gone through several teachers who kept quitting.  She came in to help us finish out the year and treated us amazingly! She even took the whole class to her home on the beach where we collected clams and seashells then brought them back to clean them.  One of my goals is to help reform education in developing countries (specifically Africa). I remember Mrs. Watson for how kind she was to (us) her students.”
