Teacher at heart

My dear friend Patrice "googled" me to find my blog and found this article.

It absolutely made my day to read it this morning! I remember being an aide for students with disabilitities in junior high, but this really brought back all of the memories! This was such an amazing program and I think it speaks wonders to say that it's what first sparked my interest in being a special education teacher. And look.... 14 years later I'm still passionate about it!

That is so sweet. It seems like just yesterday in ways, doesn't it? Do you have any updates on any of those girls?

As a parent of a child with Autism, I am so very thankful for people like you who choose to have people with disabilities in your life. It makes such a huge difference to me as a mom, to know that my son's teacher loves what she is doing and wants to be there. Thank you, thank you from all of us.
