After having a stroke that almost completely paralyzed her left side, history teacher Claire Spencer was determined to get back to the classroom.
She underwent extensive therapy at Methodist Rehabilitation Center that helped her get her strength back.
“I love the people there, it was a great place to be,” she said.
Then she enrolled in MRC’s Quest Program, a comprehensive outpatient program for people who want to return to work. There, Quest’s physical, occupational and speech therapists tailored a treatment plan for Spencer to meet her goals.
Now she’s back shaping young minds in her role at Ridgeland’s Christ Covenant School.
“I’m so thankful that I was able to get rehab and get back to the classroom,” she said. “It means a lot.”
