The needs of our children do not disappear simply because they graduate from high school or hit a milestone birthdate. In fact, their needs change and often there are fewer resources to serve them. At The Bridge of Georgia, it is our desire to create a continuum of services that will help individuals and families navigate the challenges that each phase of life brings. As young adults face the many crossroads of life, we intend to be a resource that is steadfast and sure. This year we are beginning our program for adults. We hope that you will be a part of Connections as we grow and become a vital part of your child's life. Let us walk alongside you on this next leg of the journey!

LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF
I am Ms. Mc.
My journey into education was not the way of most. My daughters were my world and ultimately my guide into the world of education. ( After 20 years in medicine/dentistry) . I loved being that room mother and everything about the school experience. At the age of 35, I decided to jump into the world of being a non-traditional student. I received my B.A. in Special Education in 1997. Loving the feeling of learning, I jumped right into graduate school and graduated in 1999 with a dual Masters degree Emotional /Behavioral Disorders and Interrelated Learning Disabilities. Well, that just wasn’t good enough because they didn’t teach me all that I wanted to know so in 2005, I finally graduated with my Ed.S. in Early Childhood with a Reading Endorsement add on. I continue to strive to be a life-long learner and pray to be that guiding light for those incredible individuals, both children and adults. Looking forward to seeing you!
