Mr. Fuglestad is also a teacher. He teaches high school science at Buffalo Grove High School. His friends at work put together this fundraiser for him to help him afford the things he needs to be independent at home and to drive again. Here is a picture I drew on my iPad of him in his hospital bed. We started a hashtag for him called #DaveStrong (Dave is his first name) and I designed a T-shirt for him to show support.

The Daily Herald newspaper also did a story about Mr. Fuglestad. You can read it here. A bunch of Mr. Fuglestad's former students back when he taught media tech classes put together a video tribute to him. You can see it here.
One thing for sure this experience has shown me is how much I love my students. Every child I run into tugs on my heart and makes me think of my Dryden Dolphins.
Hope to see you all soon.
