"We are currently working on the Awesome Blossom lesson. I had a student who had a parent pass away that we didn't confirm before, and he had a little bit of a breakthrough one day with everyone. When we talked about imagination we talked about how he can help us have empathy for other people, and he started crying. All of my kids gathered around and gave him hugs and told him they were sorry to hear about his dad. Before that day he really wasn't doing very much classwork and he was behind in all of his classes. A week after that all of his classwork was caught up and he was on track and very proud of himself. I know that might not have been the goal of the program but it's definitely made a difference for at least one of my students. They all really look forward to the lessons and activities. Thanks for sharing this program with us." – West Virginia Public School Teacher, 4th Grade
