    Although these kids had a lot going for them before Tracey and I entered the picture, there was also a noticeable effect of our presence upon their views of being environmentally friendly and how to make change in the environment around them.

    I think that our team has been a little frustrated about our inability to really inspire our students and be more involved with helping to plan their projects and foster their ideas. We're meeting with them on Friday, and hopefully will be able to interact with them in ways that better portray our genuine interest in their ideas.
