Bahia Vista Teacher:
"I cherish the  relationship I have with my MCSV volunteer, and the relationships he has formed with my students.  He loves to help my 5th graders with their fundamental math skills as well as challenging them to think as 21st century learners. Aside from math, he gives a rich historical perspective on many topics that come up in class. In his years of service, Bill has amassed approximately 1,200 volunteer hours and has contributed positively to lives of hundreds of students."
