Celebrating Fearless Moments
Fearless Moment Highlight from Instructional Support Specialist Ms. Amanda Taylor ~
“Julia Kirk has been a participant of our teen and young adult programs for many years, and she recently returned to participate in our Connect Program. Her progress has been outstanding, and she demonstrates a fearless attitude during each of our group sessions! Julia is always eager to speak up and answer questions in group discussions. She doesn’t mind being the first to answer, and she shows the rest of the group members that it’s ok to speak up and share your thoughts. She serves as a role model for others by having a positive attitude toward learning and participating. She also shows encouragement to her peers, and she provides support when she is interacting with the group by showing empathy and understanding. We think Julia does a wonderful job of showing us how to be fearless”!
Here is to being FEARLESSLY you today!
