Learning how to use a computer, with its funny mouse and keyboard, is not easy for many people. A puzzled look would come across a student's face when we opened Microsoft Word or created a folder. Some students could barely type. But they kept working hard for all seven weeks.
As one recent class finished the final exercise I wondered if the technology class was too hard. Then one student handed me a thank you card signed by every student along with a nice donation to help Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services keep up its good work. I was so touched. That day I learned the value of volunteering and helping change people's lives for the better.
