Who Benefited More?
Joshy, a 9 year old Tribal boy, was matched with an eccentric retired special education teacher, Tim. Both of them were looking for a meaningful connection. Joshy had missed many days of school prior to being matched with Tim, a retired teacher. Although very bright, Joshy was falling behind in his academic work.
