The Universe is Reminding Me How Lucky I am
I got into the TBI research program at Mount Sinai so I will get the treatment I need at no cost. The people are excellent and understand TBI. My job will continue to allow me to work there with the flexibility of getting the therapy I need. I can work with great kids and continue to learn and grow. I have parents who tell me that they will do whatever they can to help me because I have made a huge difference and their kids enjoy learning. It is a lot of work to reach all the kids. I feel strongly that no matter what a student needs it is my job to figure it out and help them get it. I am grateful that I understand that kids all need different stuff and juggling those needs is tough but important. The strongest students do not need nor deserve any less than the weaker students. Take each one and find the potential and then nurture that growth. At the end of the year if each student feels great about his or her progress, I have done my job. I have a vision of a school where students learn because they love to learn and teachers teach because they want to facilitate that process.
