Welcome to Ms. Ehrich's website adventure: WHO   WHAT   HOW.
It will be the odyssey of YOU, WHO you are and what your care about.

You have gathered many powers,/ You have clasped them now
Like necklaces unto your breast.         Enheduanna, "The Hymn to Inanna"

You have arrived at the hallowed HOW segment, and it is here we do the hardest but most satisfying work. We are going to map out some PLANS and STRATEGIES for achieving your goals.

This is the place where we will start peeling away the EXCUSES, where we tear down some WALLS, where we develop ANSWERS and find RESOURCES.

It is all about giving you the POWER to be who you want to be.

The journey involves demystifying the college application process and searching for several support options along the way.
