Passages Students Featured in Local Blog!

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Sound Off, a locally-focused blog dedicated to recognizing teens for their pro-social involvement, featured our Passages students in their March issue.

In the monthly feature, several Passages students are asked how they have been affected through bonding with their children, the challenges of being a young parent, and what they have learned from their children.

Passages Lead Teacher and Curriculum Coordinator Andrea Itkin commented:

When I hear what our students say about parenthood, I realize how universal those feelings are. Whether they are 17 or 37, the life of first-time parents are changed drastically by the needs of their new babies. One of the most rewarding elements of working with young parents is to witness their personal growth as they learn to nurture the development of their children and discover and refine their own strengths. Their voices deserve to be heard.

Read this moving feature about how our students are both challenged and fulfilled through their roles as teen parents.
