Previously we reported on the fundraiser held by the Pillsbury M/S/T School in Minneapolis. They raised over $1000 for the La Pedrera school. Originally, we had intended that some of the money they raised go toward purchasing a used scooter for Teresa, the teacher at La Pedrera. The school is located on a mountain overlooking Quetzaltenango. It is a difficult climb up the mountain and we had hoped that the scooter would make it easier for Teresa to get to the school everyday.
Teresa, however, refused our offer. She been adamant that the funds be used only for the students, so of course we honored her request. We are lucky to have such a giving and dedicated teacher to work with the student at La Pedrera. Thanks Teresa!
