Hello, My name is Geraldine Garrison. I have been teaching Special Needs Preschool for over 20 years. I have been a teaching consultant for the preschools and Headstarts for Crawford County Community School Corp., the Washington County Schools and the Headstarts all in the Salem area at a preschool that the Special Education Coop contracted with to provide the preschool special needs children. I was also a consultant for Orange County preschools and at the Headstart in Paoli for 10 years. Previously I was the special needs preschool teacher for the Springs Valley and Paoli Community Schools in several sites in the Paoli area. I have always enjoyed working with the preschool age group. The preschool special needs program at each of these areas have been a pleasurable experience. I have enjoyed seeing them succeed with their IEP goals that all of the special needs children have. I have had numerous children with Autism and have always tried to find the best programming for each child. I have been an Autism consultant for almost my entire career. This new preschool, special-needs teaching job has been a pleasure. Marengo Elementary just embraced the preschool with open arms!
