Positively Osceola asked a number of positive leaders in the community to share their hope and their plans for the new year, and how we can encourage and support each other in 2022.  We asked Crystal Nori-Gross, ESE teacher with the School District of Osceola County, to share her hope and outlook for 2022.

EAD Osceola is continuing our mission to educate and support inclusion and the importance of understanding that “all means all”. We enthusiastically represent all facets of K12 educators and with the help of our amazing service dogs, emulate the importance that knowledge is power.

Osceola ESEAll students, no matter the physical, mental, or emotional deficit, should be afforded the same opportunities to reach their aspirations for their future.

This year, in 2022, EAD Osceola’s “New Hope” through various fundraising events is to purchase a service dog for a child and their family. It is our joyful hope that providing this first service dog for a child will only be the first of many more to come.
