When asked if I have a gift, the word inspiration always comes to mind. After twenty years in a classroom, one might expect teaching to be my response ~ but teaching is the very act of inspiring... it's inspiring to learn and question and grow.
My Passion for Autism Awareness
As an educator and administrator, and mother, I know first-hand that our schools and communities are not prepared, learned, or have a general understanding of autism. Furthermore, while ABA centers are opening across the country, low-income and communities of color are denied access. Most centers are private and can turn away a family at their discretion. I hope to see a legislature which will ensure ALL families are able to receive support and services.
