It takes a village… and a very special teacher.

It takes a very special person to accept the daunting responsibility of teaching autistic and other developmentally challenged children. It takes a very gifted individual to do it as well as my baby girl does it.

If you give a donation to her classroom by March 24 your donation will be doubled thanks to DonorsChoose.org. Just enter the code LIFTOFF on the payment page and you’ll be matched dollar for dollar (up to $50).

If you chip in to help her students, you’ll get awesome photos and a heartfelt thanks from her class.

I get a hugs. Being a dad has its perks! 🙂

Thanks.
