Congratulations to another fantastic special educator, Sandra Willet of Spotsylvania County Public Schools, for being awarded a $1,000 Cooking Autism Inc. scholarship so that she may further her special education degree.
Sandra currently holds a Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood/Elementary Education. After working as a paraprofessional in an autism classroom, she states "I knew this was the field that I was meant to be in". Sandra is a student at UVA working toward finishing her special education degree as she serves at a provisional special educator at Harrison Road Elementary School, working in the same classroom where she served as a paraprofessional for seven years.
Cooking Autism, Inc. is extremely proud to support Sandra with a $1,000 scholarship as she finishes her special education degree.
A huge thank you to Slate Realty of the greater Fredericksburg area, and Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg for supporting our efforts as we help support amazing teachers, students, and community members in our area. It truly takes the support of a whole community to continue to provide assistance to our special needs community. We are very thankful for each and everyone of you!
