  "Volunteering for STA was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Not only was I able to learn more about myself as a teacher, but I was deeply impacted by what I learned from my students: that we all have the capacity to learn, and grow in this world, if given the opportunity." 

- Laura Preston (STA Volunteer, 2013)
