Still Life with Woodpecker by Tom Robbins
One of Casey’s personal missions is to educate our up-and-coming generations with knowledge that is attainable for all learning styles. She currently works in a self-contained Special Education classroom at Curry Elementary in the Tempe School District. She has introduced the “Kindness Matters” garden project, which she originally created in 2013, to the school Special Ed program. This program builds self-confidence and pride in the students by walking them through all the steps of planting and maintaining a garden from seed, also providing the opportunity to connect general education and special education students together.
