A few weeks ago our little family ventured beyond the boundary of SWFL. I know: it’s hard to believe. We are trying to become more active as Riley becomes healthier and we have more energy and time to explore. Our adventure took us to the Tampa Bay Aquarium where we met up with Miss Jessica, Riley’s 2013-14 ESE teacher, and met her beautiful one year old son for the first time.
Seeing her reminded me how one determined teacher with a mission can make a difference in the life of a child and their family. This is especially true for children with learning disabilities. Miss Jessica taught Riley to signal “yes” and “no!” Riley could communicate!
