Natalie Callender SpEd Teacher

Jillian is a natural in her field… Instantly, I could see her bond with my students and that rapport building was not going to be an issue. Her patience for the students who needed that extra support for the day because they could not seem to “get back to reality” was impeccable. I loved watching her in action as she sat side-by-side with students and went through each step with him or her. You could see students transforming from uncertainty and struggle, to reassurance and a phase of fulfillment; knowing their therapist was an individual who generally cared for their well-being. Jillian always provided quality care and treated each student as a person who struggled with a mental illness, not a mentally ill person. I am thankful for her for always seeing the beauty in my students before they have seen it in themselves.
