SECAC Awards

Tuesday April 7th, my team and I spent the evening at the Carroll County Special Education Citizen's Advisory Council First Annual Recognition and Appreciation Awards. Our team was honored to be nominated by a parent for recognition. It was a great evening spent with friends and co-workers listening to inspirational letters written by parents. I love what I do and I find it rewarding all on its own. It feels good, though, to hear that you are making a difference.

Here's Teresa Gostomski our team leader, and upper elementary resource teacher with her husband Tony.

Carolyn Whittington, our School Psychologist

Carolyn DiStefano, Carolyn DeMay, and Monica Kerr. As you can tell, we're well-supplied with Carolyns. Carolyn DiStefano is our Instructional Assistant, Carolyn DeMay is the lower elementary resource teacher, and Monica Kerr is my right-hand. I literally do not ever want to contemplate doing my job without her.
