“There were several, but the most powerful moment happened at the beginning of the second day. In that moment, I received such an intense clarity that this work was about me. (Although I had read the book and thought I understood Anese’s model, I was still focused on my impact.) In education we spend most of our efforts in service of others. Acknowledging that developing my IEP meant looking inward was a critical turning point in helping me access my power. I will forever treasure that moment of clarity.”
