The Passport Mentoring Initiative is an opportunity for students who have an intellectual disability to explore ideas for their future after high school. Students between the ages of 14 to 21 can learn more about their area of interest or be introduced to members of their community who have similar interests.
Respite Provider since- 2010
My daughter had provided respite for the family I work with for two years and she moved out of town to begin her teaching career. I had come to know the child and he had come to know us. He was comfortable in our home and loved our dogs. I didn’t want to say goodbye so I offered to continue in her place and the family agreed.

1. How did you get interested working with kids?
I have always wanted to work with children from a young age. Through a mix up at the college I was placed in the wrong program and was exposed to the world of special needs so I stayed in the program and have made a career out of helping kids who need me and what I have learned so far.
