Nancy Beichler, a divorced mother of five, Nancy has survived on a family income of $26k. She provides for herself, her five children, and her elderly mom. Three of her children have special needs, and she knows all too well the difficulties of gaining access to meaningful educational experiences for special needs kids. Her passion for improving the system and touching individual children has driven her to pursue her education in special education. She wants to help the kids "who were never supposed to do anything" with both her hands-on work and her influence to change legislation in her region. Nancy created (and gained approval from the local school board) for a community program to help children with communication issues, she created a boy scout den for ADHD boys, she is an in-class volunteer for kids with learning disabilities, and she mentors parents of special needs children. Long term she would like to move into school administration.
