When our oldest son was ten years old, I struck up a conversation with a woman at a homeschool convention that changed his life, and mine, too. Paul had been struggling in our home school for a couple of years already and I was at a loss to know how to help him. He could read but it was slow and difficult. Math facts would not stick in his head. Without a classroom full of kids it was difficult for me to know just how his struggles compared to others.
Working in the field of special needs and learning has been my passion since childhood. As a teen I began by volunteering in schools for the disabled and working as a teacher’s aide in the special ed classrooms. Originally, I was planning to be a special education teacher, but God led my life in a different direction.
