Most of Ms. Quinney's students at Crockett Elementary don't get the chance to experience life outside of their inner city neighborhood in Houston. She wanted to give her students an opportunity to be childlike. "Just one day away to do something that they really, really like would help them to forget about all the sadness that's going on in their little lives," she says. "They're worried about problems that grown-ups have and kids shouldn't have to go through that. They should enjoy being young and carefree, but they're not."
"The thing I've always wanted to do most was take my students to Disneyland," Ms. Quinney says.
This was one request we'd have to be Goofy to refuse!
