Dogs, hiking, music, reading, the beach.
Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens - it represents the contrast in life between those that have little resources and those that have much and that kindess can occur even in the most dour of circumstances. I love Dickens description and word usage, it makes me have to think, which is always a good thing. :)
I used to work at a residential school for children with Autism for 10 years. I taught dog obedience for 15 years in Massachusetts before I moved back to Colorado.
Besides the kids and families and wonderful community, we have an incredible staff that care so much about eachother, the students, as well as being dedicated to making this a safe and happy place where students can learn and wonder!
