I want to acknowledge Ms. Hitomi for completing the year long Child Development program at the St. Louis Psychoanalytic Institute. It is a grueling program and Ms. Hitomi studied hard as she began to integrate her studies with her practice.
Many of our teachers and supporters have completed the same program and you all know how challenging it is to go to school and work full time. In addition, she participated on several committees at UCCC in addition to her regular responsibilities. Ms. Hitomi never complains about her work load. She is inspiring as she works to understand the children in her class. She works to reflect on her role with each child. Her positive attitude and "can do" perspective are truly advancing our vision for children. She is a role model for all of us. - Steve Zwolak
