A-Base Teacher Maureen Graham
Eavan Driscoll, Editor
- The “awesome” A-Base program supporting students who have autism grades 9-12.
- Seven years teaching after a 20-year business career.
- “I am a career switcher… when President Casteen, the former UVA president, said that ‘if kids don’t pass algebra, they don’t go on to have professional careers,’ in his farewell speech, I decided I could do something about that. Once I began working as a teacher, I fell in love with working with special education students. I really wanted to help students with exceptional abilities get the attention they deserve in the school.”
- “Friday. I think most people really like Fridays.”
- “I have been to over 100 concerts in my life.”
