Why this Work is Important To Me

It seems more and more common that some of my friends and family share with me their fears and concerns of learning that their child has been diagnosed with an LD. I have seen the desperation on their faces, the sense of great worry about the future of their beloved children. It is vital for me to wake up every morning with a great sense of purpose, knowing that the work I am involved in is truly making a difference in this world. Eye to Eye’s mission to empower students with LD and their families, restoring their confidence and unlocking their greatness is exactly the kind of mission I want to get behind and advocate for each and every day!

Favorite Part of My Job
