". . .a small gesture can change the life of a child."

Today an educator I work with reached out to help a child. She went beyond the expectation and did something special to empower a child and his family. This simple, but extraordinary, gesture made a positive difference.

As I showed students' the second Caine's Arcade movie today, I was struck by the Imagination Foundations' founder, Nivan Mullick's words, ". . .a small gesture can change the life of a child."

In schools we witness these gestures often when an educator helps a child, a student helps another student, and parents reach out to help their own children and other children too. In schools we have multiple opportunities to enact these small gestures, and it is in this work that we serve children well.
