Cissy White: How I was Saved by a Teacher

Meet Cissy: Adoptive mom, writer, activist and  manager with ACEs Connections…and survivor of early childhood trauma. Cissy takes us into her world as a young child, specifically how school became a sanctuary for her, and what teachers did (or didn’t do) to have a positive influence on her. It’s a personal,  insightful account of how being there and reaching out to build relationships with kids  can make a huge difference in the life of a child and should always be at the heart of the  teaching profession.
