KATHY EVERETT (Advocate / Special Education Teacher)
Geographical Area: Anywhere with travel expenses.
Having daughters with disabilities and being a teacher, I know how to phrase things to get the appropriate education for your child. Navigating the special education maze can be emotionally draining and requires a vast knowledge of rules and regulations. I like to help parents, teachers, and administrators feel comfortable with each other and do what is in the best interest of the student.
