I was born and raised in Enfield, Connecticut, but my home is now in Fairfax, Vermont. I am a high school physical education teacher, wife, and mother of two. My older son, who I lovingly refer to as Mr. Mischief, is six and on the autism spectrum. My younger child is two and is developing neurotypically. My true passion is connecting with special needs parents and spreading autism awareness with some humor mixed in. You can follow all of our adventures over on my blog Raising Mr. Mischief. http://raisingmrm.blogspot.com
