Jim has taught me the importance of speech and has given me the confidence to speak, which has made learning fun at school. I used to be a very quiet student who did not talk very much. Working with Jim has allowed me the opportunity to discover and use new words, to try poetry, and even to appreciate creative writing. I am even writing my own autobiography and making a timeline of all the important events in my life.
I also have developed an appreciation for reading about history. I can remember many random historical events and love talking to Jim about the past, even though it was before I was born.
