Last week, at our Teacher of the Month presentation at New Paltz High School, Michelle and I had the unexpected pleasure of meeting Judy Adams, the young woman who nominated her teacher for this Award.
Part of what makes Judy so extraordinary is her big heart, her earnest desire to help others, and her boundless enthusiasm, energy and love.
These two videos are wonderful!! The first explains Judy's initiative called "Dimes for Downs"--you will be charmed and inspired--and the second is a clip from her appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, where she gets a big surprise from Tim Tebow. Enjoy!
It is so amazing what one single person (one with a wonderful mom!) can accomplish. For every person who benefits directly from her efforts, there must be thousands who are uplifted and heartened, possibly with a renewed desire to reach out and offer a bit of assistance, even if it's just to one person. We can all do something! And after watching Judy, I think everyone will want to!

THANK YOU JUDY! We wish you all the best!
