"The most rewarding part of teaching is realizing the moment when students are comfortable taking risks with their learning. When you have created a classroom community that values mistakes and putting yourself out there, it is such an amazing thing."
" The one thing I enjoy about being a business owner is definitely the design process and the ability to control whatever I want. I used to be a fashion designer in corporate America (pre-motherhood) and I always felt like I was placed in a box. I could never go too over the top or too crazy because they had their own aesthetic. Now that I have my own business, I can go as far as I want with the designing."
" My advice to parents of children on the spectrum is to continue loving your child. That your child is not broken. That your child deserves all things great in this world regardless of their disabilities. While the spectrum is very large, a diagnosis is not a death sentence. Be open with your fears & concerns for your child, then hit the ground running. Just remember: your babe doesn’t need to be fixed. Meet them where they are & love them as much as you can."
