In the community

One of my favorite things to do is to spend time with the children in our community. I was born here and raised here. This is my home. And I love to see the spark in the eyes of the children growing up and imagining the possibilities awaiting them. 

Pictured are my visits with MrDadsFathersClub in the classroom and a visit to a pre-primary school in Englewood.
