Wow! Today marks the end of the first official session held at GPI4L! I just can't believe it. It has been a whirl wind of amazing emotions! I have loved every single second I have spent in my little building. Smack in the middle of me trying to teach summer school online, hold a virtual reading group, buy and renovate a building and build a business, I was invited to be on a podcast of a fabulous local mom who has a blog and podcast. I wanted to share the link which highlights how I got here.
I certainly wouldn't be here without you and your amazing kids. What an absolute joy it is to have a place where kids feel safe, loved, and heard so they can learn free the barriers of stress. I look forward to creating more courses, servicing more kids, and keeping the program thriving with new content and the energy it takes to engage kids daily. Thank you for being part of this journey with me.

Well, today was the day! We had our FIRST group in our newly renovated space, and boy, was it great! I am super excited with how the building is turning out. We still have more to do, but we got it ready enough to open. From now on, when you drive down Mack Ave and you are between Lincoln and Fisher, check out the green doors on the building. You can't miss them! Thank you to the families who were there for my first day! Your support means the world to me.
Disinfecting went as planned and scheduled! I am very pleased with knowing that the space is thoroughly disinfected after each group. We will continue this service for as long as needed.
I plan on doing some pop up groups for those that want to come in, but not commit to the 4 week core content course. I must say, we packed a lot into an hour and a half, yet the kids were surprised when I told them it was time to leave! See? Time flies when learning is fun!
