Speaking of teachers...

A ways back, I funded a DonorsChoose project for a teacher to buy Frankenstein, Dracula, and Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde for his students. His project was all about how "Monsters can teach us about ourselves and our history." So in my donor note I wrote, "As a Monster-American, I applaud efforts to teach children more about our kind."

I enjoyed the teacher's reply:
"Hi Mike! Monster-Americans are this country's great unsung heroes and deserving of understanding and acceptance just like everyone else. Thanks for your generosity! Mr. D"
