WORKING WITH SPECIAL NEEDS INDIVIDUALS
a found gift
Earlier in my life, I worked in residential life and supervised living settings with individuals with disabilities and special needs. These amazing experiences became an indelible part of my life, and I wonder if I could ever adequately describe the expansion in my personal horizons because of it.
It was a natural and very logical evolution for me when I saw a wonderful connection... a pathway through which I could use my strengths and talents to help others. I love teaching, and I can say that some of the greatest moments I've experienced as both an artist and an educator have been found when I had the fortunate opportunity to work in this area.
