I enjoy making a difference in their lives and pushing my students towards their goals in life.”

— Mrs. Carson

Mrs. Carson loves her job and what she does.

“I enjoy making a difference in their lives and pushing my students towards their goals in life,” Mrs. Carson said

She went to Juniata College from 2007 to 2011, and she is finishing up her master’s program through Wilson College since 2014 to this year.

She graduated from Chestnut Ridge High-School in 1999. It was her high school teachers that inspired her to become a teacher herself. They are her role models.

“I still have contact with those teachers,” said Mrs. Carson. “I go to them with advice.”

In her free time, she likes to spend time with her kids and family.

One of the challenges of working in the autistic support room is time management and paperwork, and managing time so you can get the paperwork done.

“If you could skip the paperwork it would be a lot more fun,” She said.
