No other teacher had been able to handle these six emotionally damaged children.
Three were recent arrivals from conflict-ridden Ireland, horribly traumatized by the nightmare of war. Then there was an eleven-year-old boy who had never known life outside of an institution; eight-year-old Mariana, who was dangerously excitable and sexually precocious; and Leslie, seven years old, yet completely unresponsive and unable to speak.
These were the children entrusted to the care of Torey Hayden, the extraordinary special-needs teacher who refused to give up on them. Torey was determined that every child should experience joy, hope and future free of fear. With compassion, patience and most of all love, she knew that miracles could happen.
