Thanksgiving is a time everyone is encourage to hit pause and remember what they are grateful for. At City Year, we are appreciative of the great educators and administrators that make our work possible and it doesn’t go unnoticed by our students either. At Kensington High School, our AmeriCorps members sat down with their 9th graders to put into words why they are thankful for their teachers who make a difference. Enjoy the words of kindness and gratitude below and share a few of your own with the people who have made a difference for you.
