In this episode you’ll hear from Ally Lovejoy, a Minnesota teacher who has always found joy in working with children with additional needs. Ally currently teaches children with mental health diagnoses such as Oppositional Defiance Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive disorder, giving them a safe and accepting place in her classroom where they can learn and develop at their own pace.
“We don’t always see behavioural light bulb moments as often as we do academics. So that’s why I also like the academic light bulb moments too, because we can kind of get those on the daily. And then when we do get the behaviour light bulb moments, it’s like I feel like I’m really making a difference.” – Ally Lovejoy
