In her own words . . .

“I am incredibly passionate about teaching, and the kids and families that I work with. I see a lot of children who have so many extraordinary abilities, but need to be taught the skills and strategies to be the most successful version of themselves. . . . I truly love my job. The greatest reward is seeing a child overcome obstacles and start advocating for themselves and their future. That makes it all worth it!”

In the words of others . . .

“Lindsey has a limitless understanding and patience with her students. Repeatedly, I have witnessed her gentle approach bring even the most determined student to make the right choice. Lindsey has the ability to bring out the best in students and co-workers alike, all the while maintaining continuous professionalism.”
