Zachary


April 8, 2014—“We were very nervous when Zachary began first grade in a mainstream school. But within the first few days his teacher called to tell me how impressed she was with Zach.

"On his own initiative, he had explained to his classmates about his hearing loss, his cochlear implant, why he needed it, and how the doctors put it in. He even let each student feel the slight bump in his head! Clarke always taught kids to be proud of who they are and advocate for themselves. And Zachary does just that!

"Clarke also prepared him very well in reading, spelling, grammar and writing. While striving for excellence and very motivated, he is still silly, loves to make people laugh and has recently been invited to join the competitive karate team. At one time it was hard to imagine a life outside the Clarke family. But it is because of Clarke that Zachary is thriving in the mainstream. And for that, our family cannot thank Clarke enough.”
