About the Book


The Epitome of Grace: A Journey of Student and Teacher

Kristina and Dale first met in 2004 when Dale visited Kristina’s elementary school. Dale immediately saw a special light behind those eyes. Kristina felt at ease with Dale’s presence. The transition to Evergreen Middle School was smooth. Dale was Kristina’s special education teacher and primary provider for four years of middle school.

Prior to the beginning of each school day, Dale wheeled Kristina to the elevator to take her to the second floor. This was a daily ritual. Kristina’s classroom and equipment room were on the second floor. Each day, Dale transferred her from a manual wheelchair to an electric one so that Kristina was ready for the day’s educational journey.

One morning, Dale happened to ask a mundane question, “So, what do you want to be when you grow up?”

Kristina’s response caught Dale by surprise, “Well, I am not going to be a major league soccer player. I want to own a publishing company and write a book. This is something that I can do.”

Part of the justification for Kristina staying at the middle school for another year was the genesis of this book. Five years later, their writing expedition was completed.
