Ode to Maureen

Ode to Maureen

Maureen Galvin, the name says it all

As a friend and a teacher, you are 10 feet tall

The music, the dancing, the fun and the laughter,

Are treasures we’ll all have for ever after.

Sometimes we giggle and sometimes we forget

So when we’re up on the stage is when you must fret

But on Monday nights when our practice is finished,

It’s rewarding to go to a pub for a Guinness

My son wrote this poem (in school no less!) and I thought it would be a wonderful addition to our website. Enjoy!

Luck of the Irish

Of course I mean you

I can't thank you enough for what you do

No matter what you drink

Or how much

You're always the wisest in my eyes

Hi All! > I'm fine and I miss you all! > I was moved to the Al Sigl center location after being at the high school/middle school campus for 8 years and my caseload changed from 12 to 21 year olds to 7 to 12 year olds. Big difference! Plus, we've had lots of new paperwork expectations placed upon us because of the scrutiny on agencies that bill Medicaid. And I find myself staying late at work most nights - and quite late some nights. I just haven't been able to drag myself away from home...
