"...gave me the informative tools I needed to continue to fulfill my vocation."

Dr. Escarpio is the type of educator I strive to be.  He is knowledgeable, funny, approachable, and passionate about all students, but in particular children with special needs.  His resounding words, “Remember who they belong to,” have since served as my new mantra- all children belong to God- so we must educate them with the utmost respect, dedication, and love.  This is our mission as teachers.  In particular, the workshop I attended, Instructional Strategies for Students with Learning and Attention Deficits, gave me the informative tools I needed to continue to fulfill my vocation.  It was not only enlightening and offered excellent strategies and facts regarding learning disabilities, it was also entertaining and very “real-world”.  I truly had a wonderful experience.  May God continue to bless this pioneer in his journey of educating the Catholic community on the needs of our special educations students. --- Nichole G., Teacher, St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School
