Each week, we witness so many touching moments. Max, a School-Age student in Ms Elizabeth’s class, came to school with something very special in his book bag. It was a “Healing Hero” award from his parents through the organization A Kid Again - Northern Ohio Chapter. His parents sent a statement as to why they wanted Ms Elizabeth to receive this recognition. Among other details on the certificate, it stated how Ms Elizabeth has contributed to their son’s success, how she provided materials and activities while he was home recovering from surgery, and their appreciation for the countless hours that must go into the planning of such highly differentiated educational experiences. This is truly a special moment! Learn more about this organization at www.akidagain.org.
