Hi Parents. My name is Kim Wagner. I live in Frederick with my husband, Kevin of 17 years and our 4 children. I graduated with a BS degree from University of Central Florida outside of Orlando. I also have a Nursing Assistant certification from Front Range Community College. Special needs is very near and dear to my heart. We have a son, who is 11 who was diagnosed with autism and a son, who is 9 with asbergers syndrome. I have learned a great deal about patience and unconditional love. I have also learned a lot about applied behavior as my son continues to learn this through his school. I recently completed the Behavior Technican course and will be sitting for my certification exam this summer. My children attend therapies at Inspiring Talkers and I learned about the school opening. I started working as a para in November of 2016. I love my job, the kiddos and the staff. During my off time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our kiddos, my Labrador retrievers and my horse. Thank you for sharing your amazing children with us. I look forward to working side by side with you as we help your children become even more successful.
