That being said, working with Seneca and LMU has been an incredible way to get my footing in this new world. When I first began my classes, I was worried my professors and I would not be able to connect because of my unique experience working for Seneca. Imagine that relief when I realized the professors had partnered with Seneca before and some had worked for Seneca themselves. Of course, I cannot go without mentioning the amazing professors and teachers from Teach For America who has been a crucial part of shaping my own teaching philosophy. It’s a beautiful community that we share. It has not been a crystal staircase, but thanks to the people around me, I’m still motivated to make the climb.
I have always admired the mental health work that Seneca does. I’m hopeful and excited to see the direction that the agency takes regarding special education.
