Sue Curia Pulisci
beloved teacher

Students grapple with impending loss by folding cranes with love, hope and gratitude.

More than 1,200 paper cranes dangle from the ceiling of Room 1 at Addison Elementary School -- hand-folded symbols of hope for Sue Curia Pulisci, a beloved teacher who is dying of brain cancer.

Every day or so, a student, parent or staff member at the Palo Alto, California, school adds another colorful origami bird to a bag kept by Pulisci's former aide Sarrie Paguirigan.

When Paguirigan collects 10 cranes, she strings together a chain and adds it to the ceiling in Room 1, where Pulisci taught for 37 years. Each school day, beneath the crane mobile, kindergartners gather for lessons in grammar, spelling and life.

Please, fold a crane for this wonderful woman and for all the students that she loved so much.
