Just got home and had to write you all about what an amazing week Ahren, Logan, Chase, and Tim had. Again this year I am truly staggered by the unbelievable rapport you build with the kids and the level of instructional expertise you’ve offered them. As a teacher and mom to 3 boys, I have truly never seen anything like this. You inspired Logan so dramatically last year that his select NT involvement this year (abandoning his diehard Leaside allegiance) is a direct result of who you are as people. Logan has again announced his intent to become ‘just like you guys’, not just as a ball-player, but as a coach and all-round ‘grown up’. Now you’ve inspired Ahren in the same way. Ahren announced in the van just now that he will try-out for A or Select baseball next season and will find out about becoming a CIT with you next summer.
Honestly, kudos to you all — you have found the magic. If only we teachers could take a lesson from all of you, I can only imagine what would be possible in the classroom.
Truly, thank you. Have an incredible summer!
