"The thing I loved the most - and still love the most about teaching - is that you can connect with an individual or a group, and see that individual or group exceed their limits... Mike Krzyzewski" As a long-time teacher and individual with disabilities, I personally felt the Spirits of Advocacy soar when I humbly attended the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities act, at the White House, on July 26, 2010. That day changed my life - I knew that I could not expect others to bear the burden of advocating for me. I get my own 'flavor' of what propelled other advocates to do what they did. IMy passions are - disability rights advocacy, education reform, special education advocacy, interfaith dialogue regarding disabilities awareness. I hope that we can grow into a Movement that welcomes the stories of others.
