This is my 8th year at Mary Cariola Children's Center. I was a Teacher's Aide for 2 1/2 years and I am now in my 5th year of Teaching! Mary Cariola is an agency that provides individualized services for children with developmental delays and especially those with complex or multiple disabilities. We are a private, non-profit agency that is regarded as a leader in providing education, residential programs, and other services for children with disabilities. Some of the other services we include are: Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Musical Therapy, Behavior therapy, telemedicine, psychological consult, adapted physical education, a transition program, medication consult, social work, and dietary consult. We service students from 53 school districts in 10 different counties. Mary Cariola has made such an impact in my life and I truly love my job, I love the atmosphere, and I genuinely love the people I work with...students AND staff!!!! My students brighten my day and I love watching them grow and expand their skills each year. If you are able to help us out, we would greatly appreciate it. EVERY little bit helps. YOU can make a difference in these children's lives! Thank you...I can't tell you how much it means to me that you guys all help me out year after year.
