Broken Crayons Still Color

It is that time of year again! It’s time for teachers to put their classrooms back together, while still squeezing in one more vacation. Don’t get me wrong; I LOVE my summer break, but I also love to see twenty-two smiling new faces. Teaching has always been my passion. After my car accident in 2011 left me paralyzed from the waist down, I didn’t know if it would ever be possible again. Thankfully, I am miraculous, living proof that broken crayons still color!
