    Chuy’s is so yummy! I hope the class gets the things they need. As a teacher, I know what a difference the right materials can make.*

    I realize you’re very busy with this trip promoting a good cause and I also realize that this post was probably rushed. However, when you have some time, I think it’s in your best interest to edit this post; the grammar mistakes are horrendous. Typically, I don’t care, but, you’re asking for donations to promote a great cause, and yet you can’t give this cause your time to make your post sound as if a professional wrote it. In the best interest for the children and the cause you’re supporting, please fix your grammar mistakes in this post. It’s only right.

      Where are the grammar errors? If it’s so important to you, why don’t you specify the errors you found? Did not see a single error- just a typo (greats)

    I love teaching in elementary schools. Though the last time was a decade+ ago. They are so much fun!

    Jacob is amazing! I’m sure that little guy can do “a million” times more pushups than me! 🙂

    I want to help all of these kids and schools! They are so adorable and precious. It’s horrible that there are so many schools that need our help to provide basic educational tools. Good luck in raising lot of money for such a great cause!

    Welcome to Austin! SXSW doesn’t afford much free time, but as a foodie it’s your JOB to visit the flagship Whole Foods on South Lamar 🙂 You’ll love it!

    I agree with K. Meghann, you need to proofread your posts.

    …oh…to add on to my previous comment. I will be participating in some donating. This is such a great cause!

    I must be dumb or blind because I only noticed one word that had an extra ‘S’ at the end. However your message and the cause wasn’t affect by it. Not sure why someone has to post a comment instead of sending an email telling you to clean up the grammar. Enjoy Texas! Do you guys have to drive back or do you get to fly?

      Agreed! People are so rude! The only error was “greats”..just a typo

    Jacob is so adorable! I have no doubt in my mind that he could do many more push ups then I could do. SXSW or Bust sounds like it has been such a fun road trip so far.

    Awesome feeling huh? If you are looking to help a Central Florida group that raises money, collects supplies, and helps students/teachers get the supplies check out http://agiftforteaching.org/ We volunteered there for our Valencia College Learning Day http://youtu.be/MikZoebE5ww and have donated tons of supplies every year.

    I was reminiscing about my days at Mayde Creek Elementary, Junior high, and high school (yes I went to all three), and it was so nice to see your pictures of the library and Mrs. Williams’ classroom. My favorite memories of MCE was the library. I loved how it was so open and inviting. Our librarian, Mrs. Gros, always had time for students and I really like the creative reading spaces. We had a fabric hot air balloon that everyone fought over to read in and bean bag chairs. I think we all would have been happy to have the boat at that time too. I went to MCE from 1987-1990 (3rd-5th grade). It was a low income school then too, but I don’t think that any student missed out or felt they were lacking a good education. Thank you for supporting this school when you did. And thank you for posting the pictures.

    MCE was the best! I went here from 2003-2010 (Pre-K through 5th grade) and I enjoyed just about every minute of it. They literally had the best staff you could think of for each subject taught at this school!…at least when I was going here anyway, I don’t know about now. Mrs. McRae, Mrs. Lawrence, and Mrs. McBee for Music, Mrs. Hackett and Coach Fichera for P.E., Mrs. Shelly for the librarian, Mrs. Weisner for the counselor, Mrs. Dionne and Mrs. Bradley for art, I mean come on, how much better can you get?! Not to mention every single one of my teachers (which would take me so long to name them all because I had so many other teachers help me aside from my main ones) but I want to give a special thanks to Ms. Tempy Psenka (formerly Ferguson) for helping me mature into an awesome middle schooler and an even better highschooler, and for helping me come through so many emotional struggles through the time that you thought it was worth to help me, and I appreciate every single minute of it! MCE rocks!
