  • - THERE'S SOMEONE IN OUR AUDIENCE

  • I WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT.

  • HER NAME IS JULIE PATEL.

  • SHE'S A FIRST-GRADE TEACHER WHO SPENDS

  • HER OWN TIME AND MONEY TO MAKE SURE

  • THAT HER STUDENTS HAVE EVERYTHING THEY NEED,

  • AND THAT IS WHY SHE IS AN INSPIRATION TO ME.

  • LOOK AT THIS.

  • [gentle guitar music]

  • - NUMBER THREE.

  • all: WRITE IN MY RED WRITING JOURNAL.

  • - MY NAME IS JULIE PATEL.

  • I AM 30 YEARS OLD,

  • AND I AM A FIRST-GRADE TEACHER AT PARKER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

  • IN QUINCY, MASSACHUSETTS.

  • EVERY DAY, I COME INTO THIS CLASSROOM

  • THAT I LOVE SO MUCH,

  • AND IT'S FILLED WITH THE MOST SPECIAL LITTLE PEOPLE.

  • THESE PEOPLE, THEY SOMETIMES DON'T HAVE A LOT,

  • BUT THEY HAVE HOPE, AND THEY HAVE LOVE.

  • A LOT OF OUR STUDENTS COME FROM TOUGH BACKGROUNDS.

  • 80% COME FROM AN ASIAN BACKGROUND.

  • A LOT OF THEM HAVE MOVED HERE FROM CHINA,

  • AND WHEN THEY ARRIVE HERE AT THE SCHOOL,

  • THEY DO NOT SPEAK ENGLISH AT ALL.

  • THEY MAY NOT EVEN HAVE AN ENGLISH NAME YET.

  • WHATEVER THEY NEED, WE MAKE SURE THAT THE FAMILIES GET.

  • LAST YEAR, FOR EXAMPLE, I HAD A LITTLE BOY.

  • I NOTICED HIS TOES WERE LITERALLY

  • POPPING OUT OF HIS SHOES.

  • SO I JUST WENT OUT AND GOT HIM SOME NEW SNEAKERS.

  • EVERYTHING YOU SEE IN THIS ROOM, ASIDE FROM THE CURRICULUM BOOKS,

  • I HAVE PURCHASED MYSELF.

  • [chuckles]

  • I SPEND PROBABLY SEVERAL THOUSAND.

  • WHEN THEY LEAVE MY CLASSROOM-- WHICH WILL KILL ME...

  • [laughs] IT DOES EVERY YEAR IN JUNE--

  • I JUST--MY WISH FOR THEM IS THAT THEY--

  • THEY GO OUT INTO THE WORLD AND THEY DO GOOD.

  • I WANT TO LEARN "I LOVE YOU."

  • - WO AI NI. - WO AI NI.

  • [laughter]

  • WHY IS THAT SO FUNNY?

  • WE DO A LOT OF FUN THINGS.

  • I'VE ACTUALLY STOLEN-- WELL, I BORROWED.

  • I SHOULD SAY "BORROWED."

  • I BORROWED FROM ELLEN.

  • WE PUT ON SOME MUSIC,

  • AND I DANCE OVER TO MY READING CHAIR.

  • - [singing] SHARE YOUR SILENCE

  • - FOR ME, THIS SCHOOL IS MAGIC.

  • IT'S A PLACE WHERE I THINK ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN.

  • AND WHEN YOU TEACH SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES

  • AND TO BELIEVE IN HAPPINESS AND JOY AND TO SPREAD IT,

  • THEY--THEY BELIEVE IT TOO.

  • - [singing] BRING YOUR SECRETS

  • - I LOVE YOUR STORY, AND I LOVE--

  • YOU REALLY LOVE TEACHING.

  • YOU WERE JUST BORN TO TEACH. - I LOVE IT.

  • I WAS BORN TO TEACH, YEAH.

  • YEAH, THAT'S PRETTY MUCH TRUE. [laughs]

  • I LOVE WHAT I DO, AND I--

  • I FEEL LIKE THERE'S NO BETTER JOB

  • THAN TO BRING OUT THE BEST IN LITTLE PEOPLE

  • AND TO SPREAD JOY AND MAKE THEM HAPPY.

  • - THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB.

  • [applause]

  • YOU SPEND-- AS WE SAW IN THE PACKAGE--

  • YOU SPEND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OF YOUR OWN MONEY.

  • WHAT DO THEY NEED THE MOST?

  • - OH, IT'S SO HARD TO SAY.

  • THEY--I MEAN, SO ALL OF OUR STUDENTS,

  • THEY LIVE IN A 2-MILE RADIUS OF OUR SCHOOL,

  • SO THEY WALK TO SCHOOL.

  • AND WE LIVE IN BOSTON. IT'S COLD.

  • AND SOMETIMES I'LL SEE THEM WITHOUT HATS AND GLOVES.

  • AND I'M LIKE, "WHERE ARE YOUR HATS AND GLOVES?"

  • SO I BUY THEM THAT, I BUY THEM SNEAKERS,

  • CLOTHES IF THEY'RE WEARING THE SAME THING EVERY DAY,

  • CRAYONS, PENCILS, FOOD.

  • - THEY'RE LUCKY TO HAVE YOU AS A TEACHER.

  • THAT'S AMAZING.

  • I MEAN, WE NEED MORE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU...

  • [applause]

  • RAISING-- HELPING RAISE THESE YOUNG KIDS.

  • WELL... - THANK YOU.

  • - YOU TEACH AT PARKER ELEMENTARY.

  • AND LET'S SEE WHERE JEANNIE IS RIGHT NOW.

  • LET'S JUST TAKE A LOOK AND SEE WHERE SHE MIGHT BE.

  • - JEANNIE!

  • - HI, JULIE!

  • HI, MRS. PATEL!

  • - I LOVE YOU GUYS!

  • - [squeals] HELLO!

  • - HI, JEANNIE.

  • - HI. - HI, ELLEN.

  • HOW ARE YOU? - I'M GOOD.

  • HOW ARE YOU THERE, JEANNIE?

  • - OH, MY GOSH, WE ARE DOING SO GREAT HERE.

  • WE HAVE BEEN SO EXCITED TO MRS. PATEL--TO SURPRISE HER.

  • ALL OF HER STUDENTS HAVE BEEN SO EXCITED.

  • SAY HI TO YOUR TEACHER, GUYS. SAY HI!

  • - HI, GUYS. I LOVE YOU. [students cheering]

  • I MISS YOU SO MUCH.

  • - WHAT ROOM IS EVERYONE IN RIGHT NOW, JULIE?

  • - UM, THEY ARE IN THE "MEDIA CENTER."

  • - WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? "MEDIA CENTER"?

  • - [laughs]

  • THE MEDIA CENTER IS--

  • IT'S AN INTERESTING COMBINATION.

  • WE--IT'S OUR AUDITORIUM.

  • IT IS ALSO OUR LIBRARY.

  • IT IS ALSO OUR COMPUTER LAB.

  • AND WE ALSO HOST MUSIC

  • AND LIBRARY CLASSES IN THERE, ALL AT ONCE.

  • - WELL, THAT SOUNDS LIKE IT IS A MEDIA ROOM.

  • I KNOW THAT THE COMPUTERS ARE--

  • I THINK--WERE THEY THE FIRST ONES EVER BUILT, OR WHAT...

  • - YEAH, SO--

  • [laughter]

  • OUR SCHOOL TURNS 100 NEXT YEAR,

  • AND WE DON'T HAVE SMART BOARDS AND IPADS

  • LIKE A LOT OF OTHER SCHOOLS DO.

  • AND IT HURTS, AS A TEACHER,

  • 'CAUSE YOU DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN,

  • AND, YOU KNOW, WE'RE STILL NOT--

  • WE'RE STILL NOT GETTING THEM WHERE THEY NEED TO BE.

  • - WELL, LET ME HELP YOU OUT HERE,

  • BECAUSE WE TOLD WELLS FARGO YOUR STORY,

  • AND THEY THINK WHAT YOU'RE DOING IS INCREDIBLE.

  • THEY BELIEVE THAT SMALL ACTS MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE.

  • THEY WANT TO GIVE PARKER ELEMENTARY

  • A CHECK FOR $25,000.

  • [cheers and applause]

  • OH, IT'S RYAN! IT'S RYAN.

  • - HEY.

  • OH, MY GOD.

  • I'M GONNA LOSE MY MIND.

  • - ALSO...

  • [cheers and applause continuing]

  • - OH, MY GOD.

  • - YAY.

  • WELLS FARGO ALSO WANTS TO MAKE

  • THE HOLIDAY SEASON SPECIAL FOR YOUR STUDENTS.

  • JEANNIE, OPEN UP THAT CURTAIN.

  • - OPEN THAT CURTAIN!

  • - WELLS FARGO IS GONNA GIVE

  • EVERY STUDENT A PROPER--

  • A FULL BACKPACK FULL OF SCHOOL SUPPLIES...

  • - OH, MY GOD.

  • - TOYS.

  • [cheers and applause]

  • THEY HAVE THEIR LITTLE--

  • - OH, MY GOD, LOOK AT THEM.

  • - WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

  • [cheers and applause]

  • - TAKE A BACKPACK!
