Whenever she’s out and runs into one of her students, they give her the biggest hug. 24/7 she is constantly looking for new ways to help and teach her kids! Not ONLY is she a teacher of great care and student driven success, she works at Autism Society of North Carolina teaching and helping kids inside and out of the classroom! Any student and person she comes face to face with loves her for her personality and dedication to help others!
