)-- Elmcroft of River Centre granted Elva Cunningham’s dream to return to the classroom as part of their Second Wind Dreams program, which grants wishes for seniors.
Elva became a schoolteacher in Illinois right out of school and continued on until retirement. Throughout her career, Elva enjoyed teaching all ages. Elva's dream was to be able to teach again. Elva lives at Elmcroft of River Centre in Tucson. Elmcroft made arrangements with Basis Tucson North, across the street from Elmcroft, to teach a class for Ms. Brauer's 5th grade literature class. Elva and the students read and discussed the moral of stories in Aesops Fables. Elva then assigned them a drawing project, which involved the students drawing a scene from their favorite fable. The students rewarded Elva with a card, flowers, a Hall Pass and a lovely apple. Elva lived her dream thanks to the kind support from the new Basis school.
