An uplifting story to start your week, too!

It was an incredible (first) experience substitute teaching at @MtTamCollege, a college that runs out of San Quentin State Prison. Here's a little thread to recommend volunteering there to other Bay Area folks.

We're beyond thrilled for Mount Tamalpais College graduate Rahsaan Thomas!
