Book: Bridging the Educational Gap Between Home and School


“She was that student that I was not sure would graduate. Not only did she graduate, but the principal selected her to do the pledge at graduation.”

“She trusted me and that meant a lot. I knew she did not trust many people.”

“I want to be a voice to younger teachers for work/life balance. Do not let the classroom take over your life.”

“I ran from room to room doing triage; putting out fires. I had a concussion that year.”

“I told my husband that I’m not going back tomorrow and not sure when or if I would go back. I did not have support.”

“I now advocate for parents in getting services for their children.”

“You can’t neglect kids because you don’t have the time or funding. The law says you need to follow the IEPs.”

“I am helping to bridge the educational gap.”
