Overview

"You start to notice growth, and even if it's gradual, it is very rewarding to see your students conquer their goals, academic or behavioral. I have seen first-hand that constant care can make these students feel comfortable and loved enough to break through big barriers. There isn't one day where I don't look forward to getting to spend time with these students." --Seneca employee
