I would like to acknowledge The Children’s Law Center’s dedicated staff for their zealous advocacy, compassion, and understanding that ensures that each of our young clients have a strong voice in court. I am particularly grateful to Karen Simmons and Tanisha McKnight for giving me the opportunity to translate my passion for education rights into a dream job. I would also like to thank Greenberg Traurig, LLP, and particularly Bill Silverman for their incredible generosity. Without Bill’s continued support and insight, the SSES Project would not have been possible. Thanks to Marisa Imazu for her patience through the writing of this piece, her enthusiasm for child advocacy, and for her brilliant edits and comments. A big thank-you to my family for their unwavering support through the years. Finally, I’d like to acknowledge my clients who inspire me every single day.
