We are going to hear from a few crucial members of one team. Together they will share the ebb and flow of their journey designed to meet Michael's ever changing needs and to provide a meaningful education.
Janet, Michael's Mom & Penny, the Caped Crusader
Perseverance and determination are a couple of ways to describe Janet. There are no stumbling blocks too high for her. She will just find ways to move around them, over them and sometimes right through them and keep on going. One of Janet's many quotes that she lives by and describe her well is,
"Get Up, Dress Up, Show Up and Never Give Up"
Be inspired by Janet!
