“This has been the most rewarding experience in my 21 years of teaching. It has been one of the most exciting and powerful experiences that I have gone through with a class. To see the joy on the faces of the elders, the volunteers, and the students is one of the most rewarding experiences to have as a teacher and guide for these students. And as a father and a human being who cherishes genuine human interaction, the connection between the elders and the young students has confirmed for me that the warmth shared between two people is healing, powerful, transforming, and necessary to remind us that as human beings we have a responsibility not only to be the best we can be as individuals, but to recognize the other, and call forth their best as well.”  Peter Sciarretta, Waldorf 5th Grade Teacher, partner on the Story Gathering project
