Scott Sievert has been involved in education for over 18 years serving as a teacher, coach, and principal. He became interested in working with children with special needs when his daughters, who do not have special needs, began attending New Friends get-togethers at their high school in Minnesota. His daughters were thrilled every month when they were able to meet their newly formed friends to hang out for a couple hours. The impact of New Friends really hit home for Scott when he interviewed a family whose child had cerebral palsy. They shared the fact that their son, Erik, did not have friends like other children his age had. However, that changed when Erik began attending New Friends. His parents were so happy to now see Erik forming relationships and making friends. Scott hopes that the experiences that his daughters and Erik shared can be replicated at Divine Savior Academy’s New Friends.
