I am so proud of Alessandro. 

He taught his first high school class today as a pre-student teacher. He got great feedback from his instructor, his mentor teacher, and the kids. The second hour kids loved him and spread the word so that by the time fourth period came around, those kids were asking him to teach their class too! And most importantly, he had fun! I am very proud of him and so impressed that he is not intimidated by a room full of teenagers as I know I would be.   

Also, a kid gave him a fist bump the other day, which is the epitome of acceptance if you ask me.
