disabilities. These experiences lit a passion in me for special needs students.
So, I got my bachelor’s degree in early and special education in 1990 and in
2013 I got my master’s degree in special education, both from Radford

little girl, Charlotte, who is now 11 years old (she is growing up too fast).
