Why I Wrote this Book …


“Two little girls appeared in the front office of the school where I was then the principal. They had been tossed around from family to family, school to school. They were in control of very little, yet subjected to a lot. … As educators, we often have the knowledge we need to address a particular issue, but we don’t always translate that knowledge into action. I wrote this book to facilitate a process that assists schools in developing solid transition plans that can be consistently implemented over time with a high degree of fidelity.”
