Just over a year ago, a group of Mosaic and Building a Caring Community (BCC) staff visited Jaffery Academy’s Special Education Needs Department in Arusha, Tanzania. The school is headed by Swaleha Mohamedali, winner of the 2013 International Teacher of the Year Award. Mosaic and BCC were impressed by the quality of education provided at Jaffery; the individual education plans (IEPSs), the classroom structure, the use of alternative communication tools and the teaching style. We immediately began brainstorming ways we could work together to improve education in the BCC Centers.

“Hapana” means “no” in Swahili. And it’s Jonathan’s favorite word.

It’s the word he uses when greeting people, trying to get someone’s attention, agreeing or disagreeing to something or expressing joy.

“Hapana” is usually accompanied by Jonathan’s enormous smile. If you don’t know Jonathan well, it can be very confusing when you ask him to do something and he jumps to do it, while also repeatedly telling you “no.” It’s not clear why Jonathan likes this word so much – his vocabulary is quite extensive – but for those of us lucky enough to know him, it is incredibly endearing.

Remember when you went to day camp? There was excitement of days planned with friends, food and nature.

A group of almost 30 people, plus staff and volunteers had the chance to participate and have some fun during day camp, thanks to Livingston County Mental Health Board who provided all the funding needed for the people at Mosaic go this year. They had three days of camping at the Timber Pointe Center run by Easter Seals.

The relationship with the Church is Mosaic’s foundation; it’s where we started more than 100 years ago, and it’s where we continue to grow. First Presbyterian Church in Pontiac is a great example, showing the vital need a church fills. When we first met Pastor Canessa Lagan, she said we were welcome to use their building. We have been able to do this for meetings, an Employee Campaign Breakfast and a miniconcert at which we were presented a gift from Alpha Mu Chapter, a group of retired women educators.

Fall is my favorite time of year! Cooler nights, football games, and aspen gold peppering the mountain sides let me know it is time to celebrate our direct support professionals (DSPs)! Each year we dedicate a week in September to recognizing the people who serve the individuals who choose Mosaic as their provider. We have more than 95 host home providers and direct support staff who generously open their hearts to our mission. Thousands of hours of support are provided each week right here in Northern Colorado!

Mosaic in Northern Colorado is very fortunate to have some of the best staff and providers in the area. They are great at learning the people we support’s needs and providing the type of supports that work best for each person. In an effort to show how much we appreciate the long hours, extra miles, and commitment shown to those we serve, we have chosen to shine a spotlight on a few individuals who deserve recognition.
