On Tuesday of this past week, I attended a school production of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory". It was put on by the Cooke Center Academy students in SoHo, NY. All of these high school students have special learning needs. However, that is not what you noticed during the production. Rather you saw enthusiasm, enjoyment, smiles and well-learned lines and dances on all the students' faces. What a great show and accomplishment!!!
It was so wonderful to see the children performing. That was due to the hard work of dedicated teachers who encouraged, assisted children with learning lines, movements, dances, songs and creating the set design. There are so many good people connected with this place and I'm glad to be working for the organization. Check us out at www.cookecenter.org.
What great work of dedication do you see in your lives??
