10 years ago today I made a decision that would forever change our lives. After an opportunity to work with a local nonprofit that serves at-risk youth I realized that I was fighting for the wrong team. It was in that moment that I decide to follow Christ and serve disadvantaged children. Today I have been blessed with a beautiful son that wears a permanent smile, I have seen miracles and been part of them, I have students and families whose faith and dedication inspire me daily, amazing friends that I could not live without, a loving family, a new and accessible home, a car, education, and most importantly a relationship with Jesus Christ.
I can’t imagine where I would be had I not made that decision to serve Christ and am grateful I will never have to find out. I am not perfect, better than the next person, nor do I live a sin free life, but one thing I am is SAVED!!!! I am so grateful that God made the ultimate sacrifice so that I could live the life I live now.
Happy Good Friday everybody and Thank you JESUS!

David has just discovered that there is candy in the plastic eggs. After he got done getting into the eggs he could open for his class he then began hunting in my students and his Easter basket. I wanted to get frustrated because I had spent hours organizing the baskets and eggs so that each student would get surprises they would like or could eat, but after taking a deep breath I realized that I have waited 16 years to watch my son discover the candy and treasures found in Easter eggs.

Today was one of those days that confirm that you are at the exact place in your life that you are suppose to be! Being able to look at your students and watch them do all the things no one thought they could, verifies that all your hard work and long hours have finally paid off. Months of goal writing, task making, lesson planning, data collection and then… your anti social student appropriately makes eye contact and greets a visitor, or your non verbal student uses her knew found voice to express her needs. *One Proud Teacher*

It was so heart warming to watch this children get to have somewhat of a typical High School experience. Every child had a permanent smile from ear to ear. The joy in the room was contagious and it is an experiences I will never forget. The opportunity to participate in Prom meant the world to David and I. Nikki and I were is SPED Heaven!!!
