November 20th - This week one of our young adult clients graduated from Chaddock’s program and stepped into their future. Under normal circumstances, his staff and peers would throw a party to celebrate his success. COVID restrictions did not allow for that.
We couldn’t let him leave without a proper goodbye though, so Chaplain Gary held a private ceremony and sent him off with a prayer and blessing for his future. That act meant more to our young man than cake and ice cream!

One of the students in my class is always pushing limits. I feel like we redirect him 25 times a day. When you redirect a student that often, no matter how nicely you say it, you feel like a nag. I get a little weary of hearing my voice and I felt sure he was tired of hearing it too. One recent morning he walked into the classroom and handed me a pretty blue Hallmark envelope. I was so surprised! I exclaimed, “What is this for?” He shrugged and said, “It’s for being an awesome teacher.”
It really moved me and gave me some assurance that my voice is helping.
