  • Working with children with disabilities is challenging but fullfilling when you see her enjoying the activities you prefer for her. Her desire to engage with other kids is the  most rewarding one.

  • I am so excited and want to learn more on how to be involved!  I LOVE STEM.  As an early childhood prekindergarten teacher in a blended classroom, I have seen how powerful and fun STEM activities are.  I also spent a month in China leading a STEM camp and a 3 day workshop for early childhood teachers on STEM.  Would love to share!  Thank you.  

    PS- HI TRACEY :)
