Orange Center Elementary

the Seed

The children of Orange Center Elementary are a few generations
removed from the proud heritage of the Communities of West
Lakes, a once vibrant African American suburban neighborhood.

And while they may have learned the history, these students have been unable
to live it. The promising legacy of a lively community was lost, overgrown with
poverty, joblessness, homelessness and crime. Hidden in the shadows of the
Camping World Stadium, all that these children had come to know was destitution
and misconduct, making it difficult for them to even imagine a different way of life.
But now, however, students are being inspired and encouraged for a hope-filled
future through the work being done in their classes and throughout the school.
Visit the Orange Center Elementary campus and you’ll find some remarkable
things happening. Part of the historic neighborhood since 1966, the school has
faced many challenges, but Principal Margarete Talbert-Irving and her amazing
team are dedicated to providing their students with a safe, stimulating learning
environment. Recently renovated, the school is bright and clean, the hallways
are highlighted with motivational banners, and the students are shining with
enthusiasm and energy. Fueled by their motto: “Where all students are college
bound!” Orange Center Elementary is truly blossoming – inside and out.

She also had the students try waters flavored with fruits and recipes

saying they were going to ask their parents to make some of the foods.

is to expect the unexpected. That was no different
Linda Mirelman and son Max for new moms Linda Mirelman, Molli Donovan
and Casey Ibanez.

After having their babies at Winne Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies
in 2013, these moms met at Mother-Baby T.E.A., a unique Winnie
Palmer Hospital program created especially for mothers with babies
from birth to 8 weeks. T.E.A. – TLC, Education and Answers – is just
what new mothers need. Held at the hospital twice a week, the group
offers an informal, comfortable setting with childbirth educators and
nurses on hand to provide information and to answer questions about
infant care, breastfeeding, or any other concerns the moms may have.

While Linda, Molli and Casey first heard about this group in different
ways and may have initially come for different reasons, they quickly
formed a strong bond with each other. In fact, those first babies are
now 2½-year-old toddlers, and the moms have each had their second
child, all born in late 2015. And they all returned to Mother-Baby
T.E.A. – because “it felt like going home” – with new situations and
new questions.

With her first child, Linda heard about the class while in the hospital,
and she admits that she didn’t think much about it at the time. But
after a couple weeks at home alone with a newborn, she found herself
questioning if she was doing everything or anything right, wondering
if her baby was eating enough, and just needing to get out of the house.
This time around, she says, “For me, it’s therapeutic, to be able to talk
through things with people who are experiencing the same things
as me.”

Molly first heard about the class after reaching out to lactation
consultant Annette Leary, a Winnie Palmer Hospital Maternal
Education consultant who helps with the T.E.A. groups. Molli was
also dealing with postpartum depression and didn’t have any other
mom friends or family close by. She found the consistency of twice
a week meetings very comforting and says, “It helped me learn to
cope, hearing that other moms are going through the same things.
