Student With Traumatic Brain Injury Goes Back to School!

With her permission and the permission of her mother, I'm posting a video of one of my favorite people to work with.

Carissa is an inspiration to me, and I'm so grateful to be one of her teachers! We have so much fun during homebound.

This is a video we created together to help her teachers and friends get to know and meet the new Carissa. Carissa starred in it. I just did the filming and editing. Isn't she remarkable?

Carissa has a traumatic brain injury. The damage was to her brain stem and she only had a 5% chance of living. She was in a coma for two months. I am just so honored to know her.

Carissa was met with plenty of love and open arms on her first day back!
