I had the experience of having a child that was hospitalized with the stress, anxiety, and pain that follows. Learning to appreciate what we have and show appreciation, I’d like to compliment the incredible program which you have and for sending your volunteer. She was pure joy from the moment she walked in. So patient, kind, and loving. The time spent with her, my child felt like a kid with a friend for the first time in a while. We are thankfully out of the hospital but still speak of her and her exciting science projects. Thank you for the impact you had on my child and for the difference you are making for so many others. A program’s success is credit to their directors for a vision made into a reality. Thank you.F.R. Parent
At this time I would like to formally thank all the members
Of TEACH. Your first visit to our Pediatric Unit on November 3, 2017 was an incredible success. I was so very happy to meet you all and even more impressed at how prepared your TEACH group was for this hospital visit. We had been expecting a Lava Lamp experiment/ activity but also got an awesome Salt Painting activity/experiment as well. The children were so very excited, happy and engaged at
every turn. The activity was fun, entertaining, hands-on and above all, a science learning lesson! The kids got to have fun, create something and learn at the same time. I am so very excited for our next visit which I hope to schedule soon. I am glad that I decided to go with your group and hope to have a continued visiting schedule with TEACH to our hospital’s Pediatric Unit.
Thank you so very much for your awesome visit. Thank you so much more for making hospitalized children so engaged in science.

We had a parent say to us today, ‘That’s the first time she’s smiled in days’. That’s a great feeling and makes it all worth it.Miriam Andrusier Hospital Leader
There is nothing better than making children in the hospital smile while doing something that I love.Elisha Fogel Volunteer
One of the children screamed with joy “that this is the best day of their life!” and it was my favorite moment of volunteering so far!David S.Volunteer
