Patience, just like her name suggests is our patient communicator and frustration soother. She is great at working with our higher need kids, who need extra one-on-one support.  Her expertise is drawn from her extensive experience working with special needs kids as a para-educator in medically fragile and developmental classrooms for the Tacoma Schools, was well as a lifetime of experience as a special needs mom.
