I loved every moment of working with KLD. I got the chance to help kids with severe learning disabilities accomplish things they never had imagined they would do, things we all take for granted such as read, and speak in front of their peers. I got the chance to work with kids who went from hating schools to sleeping in their KLD uniforms so they wouldn't be late to school in the morning. I have seen kids come into this school feeling like they are alone in the world, and finding a family where for the first time in their lives they feel loved and worthy. I don't have the space or time to list every life that has been changed by this organization. This is a truly incredible place where education and love walk hand in hand everyday.
