"I treated Casey to a well-deserved weekend in New York three months into her first year with TFA. I hadn't seen her since I helped her get settled in St. Louis where she was teaching. By our New York trip, lots had changed for her. She had witnessed the Ferguson uprising; learned to manage more than 30 kindergartners with no assistant and few basic supplies; and gained the respect of her tough-love principal. Casey seemed taller, wiser, and more convinced than ever that TFA was the right choice for her. She was a changed person."
