Mr. Hanna is in charge of Drama Club, and they were having a meeting at lunch. A student of mine really wanted to go, but she was too shy. I asked Mr. Hanna if it was okay if I brought the student to meet him during class so she would be more comfortable. He's always so busy, but he took time to sit down with her, and talk about her ideas and concerns. He was patient, kind, and incredibly welcoming. My student left the meeting excited to try drama. I am very grateful to Mr. Hanna for being generous with his time.
