Chicago Coalition for the Homeless
March 31, 2011

I am a teacher at Tilden High School, and had the opportunity to work with Hannah Willage this February. She and her co-workers did an excellent job working with my students to help them earn service learning hours while they learned about homelessness. Hannah made many trips to our school, where seh presented a well -thought out Power Point presentation, supplied students with handouts of important information, and helped the students write letters for their aldermen. My students particularly enjoyed meeting with former homeless people who came with her as guest speakers. She accompanied us on our field trip to City Hall, even riding in our bus! She worked with a smaller group of students to help them have the chance to meet with the aldermen, as well. Her work, and that of her co-workers, was above and beyond what I expected. It was a pleasure working with her and I plan to do so again in the future.
