We have all had those students that really touch our hearts in one way or another while they spend their days with us in our classrooms. Last year I had an amazingly close knit group. They really and truly cared about one another. Something that is sometimes hard to achieve in a classroom but this group did it effortlessly. I could go on and on about how wonderful this group was. I am so glad to have been connected with these little guys even if it was for just a short time in Kindergarten.
And so the story of a friendship formed in Kindergarten continues now into first grade for two of my boys. It is amazing to see how their bond was strengthened due to very sad and unfortunate challenge presented to one of the boys. Their friendship has now received national and even international attention! You can see their story here that was featured on the Today Show and NBC Nightly News.

Their story is truly inspiring.... =)
