Mrs. Kristy Forbes

My name is Mrs. Kristy Forbes. I entered the teaching profession from a professional background working for the State of Louisiana in the following areas: Louisiana State University Medical Center-Internal Medicine Ward, Foster Care and Adoptions, and Medicaid. My interest in the field of education was piqued when my daughter with special needs entered the school system. My son had excellent teachers, but he did not require any special considerations.My daughter was assigned to some of the same teachers as my son. My fears and concerns for the special needs of my daughter were squelched almost immediately. The same teachers who were exactly what my son needed were also exactly what my daughter needed. Those teachers made such a difference in the lives of my children and the home life after school, that I was inspired to one day become an educator.
