My philosophy is that our KSC graduates must be prepared to be the teachers of all children.  Everyone should say, "I am interested and able to work with students with special needs."  Reclaiming Youth and the Responsive Classroom address the social and emotional needs of children and youth. CASA is a national organization for volunteers who work as Court  Appointed Special Advocates on behalf of children who are abused and neglected.
