Join the Movement
Breakthrough is life-changing! Every day, I wake up in the morning exhausted, wondering how I am going to make it through work the next day and why I am doing exactly what I am doing. Then, the face of one of my students flashes before my eyes and suddenly I am filled with excitement and joy.
