I was originally an Elementary Education teacher. That was my degree. I couldn't get in the door of any of the local elementary schools in our community so I dragged my feet out to the Cathedral Home with wild ideas about how abnormal the kids were. I thought that I would see kids who were crazy, drooling, spitting, incoherent psychopaths with missing teeth, and instead I found out that my dream job was actually working with treatment kids...and here is the kicker...they are all so eerily normal. Granted I did find the toothless psychopaths, but we are not talking about the people it takes to work with treatment kids...(joking of course.)
So to everyone at the Cathedral Home, and everyone at Big Brothers and Big Sisters, thanks for sharing your life with kids. And to all the young people who have been in both programs, thank you for sharing your life with us. Until next time, Happy Trails from the Pedal House.
