Nila Webster, a children’s book author who lives in Revere, draws inspiration from a line in one of her mother’s poems: “Because we dreamed it /it came true.”

Since a diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer in 2010, Webster has dreamed of devoting the rest of her life to sharing her positive energy through her books. Webster visited our school some time ago and was very impressed with the positivity she saw, was inspired by our guiding principal D.R.E.A.M. and in turn donated copies of her book “Because We Dreamed It” to every student at TMMS.

For the past month students have been reading her book as part of our Advisory program. As a thank you, a group of students prepared questions and feedback for Ms. Webster, and met with her to discuss their thoughts.

Thank you Nila Webster for your generous donation, and for taking the time to visit our grateful students!
