Jonathan McCarty is a 4 th grade teacher at Harriet Tubman Charter School in New Orleans, but he has strong ties to New York City. He spends his summers there at Columbia University’s Teachers College. So when the superstorm struck the city, he had an idea. He would have his students “send along a little note of encouragement to [help residents] get through the hard times. After all, if anybody in the country can truly understand the devastation and emotional toll a hurricane can leave in its path, it’s the people of New Orleans.”
