I'm the teacher librarian at Airport Elementary in Comox, B.C. I have been blown away by the amazing kindness and generosity of the staff and students here at Airport. We are located very close to a Canadian Air Force Base and many of our students walk to school in this close-knit community. Many of our children have parents who are overseas serving our country and have moved several times in their young lives because of their parents' commitment to our nation. Because of this, it seems incumbent upon me to serve these children and their parents to the best of my ability. Our children, the children of armed forces personnel, deserve our commitment to their education and their future. Whatever we can give them, whatever support and kindness and sense of wonder in learning that we can impart, it seems a small price to pay for all that they and their families give us - both at home and around the world.
