DEAR DR. BUTTER –
"You have inspired me to make my life a story worth telling."
~ 6th grade student
""Irene Butter’s story made a profound impact on my 8th graders. She turned tragedy into triumph, and embodies making a conscious decision to live a positive life. Kids’ lives are pretty dramatic in middle school, but Irene helped them realize they have the power to decide how they deal with challenges. Along the way, they learned vital historical content."
~ Middle school language arts teacher
