From my first week of teaching, I knew that some students needed a little more time and a different approach in order to learn as well as everyone else. As my teaching years progressed, I developed more strategies to help students who learn differently. I could see that hundreds of these students were literally “falling through the cracks” and were viewing themselves as “failures”. Because the Sisters of St. Joseph were founded to meet un-met needs, starting Hope Hall, a place children who learn differently could call “A School of Our Own”, was simply the right thing to do.
