Annual Blue Trophy Awarded to Teresita De Cruz
On January 26th, Moshe Stareshefsky, White Glove Chief Executive Officer, announced the nomination of Teresita De La Cruz, Special Education teacher to receive the Annual Blue Trophy for 2023. “Teresita is more than a Special Ed teacher, she is reinventing therapy with her high patient engagement, professional creativity and passion for children.” He said in a statement.
“My goal was to find a way to engage those special children by creating a clear-cut but interesting routine.” Teresita says.”
“Teresita starts her day with a welcome song and ends it with a goodbye song and the children know it and love it.” one of the parents relayed to Hadassah Tyrnauer, Case Coordinator.
Whether Teresita visits a patient, she is prepared with a stock of new toys which the children relate to as her ‘magic bag’.
She creates a themed lesson so the children can stay tuned throughout, without realizing her real therapy goal for the session. It is astonishing to see how Teresita can get the most challenged children cooperating.
Teresita’s goal for 2023 is help even more children with special needs reach their goals and prepare them for a better life.
White Glove Therapy takes this time to recognize all of the accomplished White Glove healthcare professionals for their continued dedication and caring. We hereby wish you a year of much career growth, success, and happiness. We look forward to continue supporting our teams and celebrating you every day in 2023.
