We went and asked our staff “what does the quote does this quote mean to you?”
“Every child needs at least one adult who is irrationally crazy about him or her.”-Urie Bronfenbrenner”
Our Inclusion Specialist, Gina Dattilo had an amazing response. “When I see this quote it reminds me of the impact that I had as a teacher with young children. I needed to be that person that supports and doesn’t demean. I needed to be the person that remembers that they are young and I have shoes on that are older than them. I can make or break their spirit and I need to be the person that builds them up! The quote and his theories are ways to support children and families that I work with. I used this quote at my grandfathers funeral to talk about how our family should be that one person for each other. I love it as a reminder to myself and others.”
