Teachers back from Haiti with lessons learned

Two teachers who have just returned from Haiti hope to pass along the life lessons they learned.

Tom Graf and Jaclyn Walsh, who teach at the Riverhead Charter School, spent a week volunteering in a clinic after the earthquake struck. They also helped remove debris and build a shelter.

?There are feelings that I've never felt before ? including fear, sadness, desperation, hopelessness,? Walsh says.

The two shared their stories and photographs with News 12 Long Island. They say the trip was so inspiring and life-changing, despite being emotionally difficult, that they definitely want to return.
