I met Beth when her son entered our school and was placed in my 4th grade class. She was constantly up at school helping, buying things for our class and for students who couldn’t afford to buy things themselves. I had to be careful not to say I liked some educational item or the next day it was sitting on my desk. Her generosity knew no bounds! She eventually joined our faculty and employed the same giving nature to the whole school. She tutored students who were having difficulties and refused to charge, she served on committees and gave of her time and talent. She even started several service projects, such as providing candy filled Easter Baskets for the children of 800 migrant farm workers. She worked with me on providing the” pounding” for 2 different Habitat for Humanity builds, presenting teacher in service programs for other schools in our Diocese, and so much more.
