“It was a lot of work yesterday, but when we were waiting outside for her mom to pick her up, I asked my student what her Mighty Writers goal was and she replied: ‘To become a better writer.’ I think that her answer reinforced to both of us why we were inside, working away at a desk on such a lovely summer’s evening!” –Diane Bones, Mighty Mentor
