I handed her a stack of neon paper and did a quick demonstration of the basic fold and she set to work. After folding dozens of paper planes and forming them into a garland we strung it across the front window and prepared to welcome our guests. As the evening unfolded I observed Jacquie handing out paper plane flyers, getting pulled into conversations and lingering with parents as she asked thoughtful questions about their student’s education and shared her passion for sparking a student’s curiosity and love for learning.
