A quote to live by

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” - Muhammad Ali

Why EdQwest?

My sister saw my niece performing below her best. The school said, "Don't worry, she's on grade level." Then, a friendly educator explained the law to my sister. My niece got tested; we learned she has ADHD; we made some changes in her life; and now, my niece is soaring academically and personally. Why did it take an "insider" sharing "hidden" knowledge for the school to support positive changes?

A quote to live by

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” - Viktor Frankl

Why EdQwest?

As a classroom teacher, I sat across the table from parents in hundreds of IEP meetings. We'd create goals, accommodations and modifications, always wondering if these were the right supports. Too often, the mom was silent, nodding and signing the papers without sharing her voice. The meeting would end, and we'd all leave the room wondering if any of it really made a difference in that child's life.

It doesn't have to be like this. My Qwest is to partner with every parent, so no one is alone in the process of educating their exceptional child.
