The Rewards of Working with Students / by Matthew Salenger

Part of our Community Advocacy work involves talking to students about the importance of Aesthetics and sustainability in our everyday world. We often get the chance to spend time with kids working on interesting projects. Last November, Matthew spent an hour with a gifted fourth-grade class in the East Valley to talk about how to think about sustainability in the built environment. The students were to take on the task of thinking about how to design an environmentally friendly house for themselves. 

A month later we received this wonderful letter. Both the words and drawings are wonderful to view. We love the flying eyeball and what looks like a mechanical crab in the center. A note is great, but to take a moment to send drawings as well is even better.
