I am a Grandparent who goes in and assists in class. Annie is such an inspiring person. The children intereact so well and she has many special needs children in the class. I know many personally and not only have they grown in her class but in their home as well. Annie inspires them to strive to achieve and they fully know, nothing is impossible as long as they believe and put in the ground steps. All praise to Annie. As a parent of a special needs son who struggled theough school, oh how an Annoe would have made his life goals so much more than what he didnt gain. We need more Annie's. Inspiration, empowerment and preservation of knowledge with mutual respect, so wonderful.
