A quote to live by
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
– Viktor Frankl
As a classroom teacher, I sat across the table from parents in hundreds of IEP meetings. We’d create goals, accommodations and modifications, always wondering if these were the right supports. Too often, the mom was silent, nodding and signing the papers without sharing her voice. The meeting would end, and we’d all leave the room wondering if any of it really made a difference in that child’s life.
It doesn’t have to be like this. Our quest is to partner with every parent, so no one is alone in the process of educating their exceptional child.
