"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." You go to work thinking you are going to teach, when in reality, these awesome kiddos are the ones that teach you. It is the best feeling getting into their world and seeing life through their eyes each day. 🌼 I am so thankful to have the opportunity to be part of ECAC."
