I am the Administrator here at the campus and wanted to take the opportunity to share some exciting news with you.

Over the years Devereux has given me many opportunities, including earning my Masters degree in Psychology, as well as my national Board Certification as a Behavior Analyst.

My Life A Poem by a Devereux Child

I’m living the life

No matter what I do.

Everyone around me thinks so to.

Why me

Can’t you see everything?

That has happened to me.

Making wrong choices and

Hearing evil voices.

Why this life?

Why all this strife?

Why all these rules?

Why all these laws?

People make me think and pause.

I could be good.

I could be smart.

Why can’t I be me and have a new start?

Why my life?

Why this way?

Why do I have to be alive to this day?

I hated myself now I love me.

Thank God for that.

Thanks God for setting me free.

I’m now in Devereux

Doing well and getting help.

For what I’ve done,

Can’t you tell?

I’m doing better all the time,

Because everyday

I really try.-----
