Ms. St. John's Reflections on the Heroes on Stamps Experience:
Too often, students believe the perception that they are unreachable, not cool enough, and lacking of the right clothes, connections, etc. This is why heroes are so important. Heroes help us to realize that we can reach past extraordinary and, at times, tragic circumstances and obstacles to make a positive impact on the world. This project was such a rewarding opportunity because it allowed students the chance to experience and find their own hero to look up to for inspiration. It helps students to realize the importance of character and choices above any material advantages.
