Also, I produced and directed a publicly presented home-school play. Currently, I write theater history manuals and produce videos for the Academy of the Arts in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl.

Special Needs

Compassion and patience are the most important characteristics of anyone working with special needs students. As a substitute teacher for twenty years (1982-2003), I was placed in many classrooms for the handicapped. Bright Horizons is one of those special schools I was privileged to gain experience in. Sycamore High School was another. Indian Hill Middle School offered integrated classrooms for special needs students. I learned to look beyond the physical and focus on the spirit of a person, meeting that individual where he or she is.
