I love and enjoy seeing the smiles on the children’s faces here at the Center – small or big accomplishments. There are many things that bring me joy about coming to work here at the Center, especially the love I have for our students. I love seeing the kids doing activities or learn new skills or tasks. The Center is like a family, we are all in it together and we are all here for the children.
