Audiences around the nation have discovered the treasure of Stacey Bess and the magic she works with children. Bess began her teaching career at The School With No Name located inside the Salt Lake City shelter where she taught math reading and self worth to homeless and transient children. By the end of her first term she was discouraged and often distraught by the circumstances facing the children who were so easy to love, but whose lives were so insecure. Often she wanted to give up, but decided the children deserved her best efforts.
