Memories Are Made of This
Chang, Christine
Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v16 n2 p103-104 2010
In this article, the author shares her memories of Sally Smith, the founder of The Lab School of Washington, where she works as the director of the Occupational Therapy. When the author first met Smith, Smith asked her what brought her to The Lab School at that point in her career. She told Smith that her background was rather eclectic, since she had worked for many years in jobs not directly connected with Occupational Therapy. She later realized that it was the richness of having faculty with a broad variety of life experiences that she particularly liked. However, a very sad time for the Lab School family was the passing its fearless leader, yet it was also a learning time as well. At a personal level, the author still hears Smith in her mind saying that the priority must be the children, that learning that is fun will stick with a teacher longer, and finally she hears her challenge her thinking with, "Why not?" The author likes to think Smith would be pleased to see that everyone still feels her presence around every corner and that everyone remains up to the challenge of meeting her creative expectations for the futures of the students.
