Teachers are some of the most dedicated and hard working professionals in the world. They log countless hours coming in to school early and staying after the last student leaves, as well as grading and lesson planning at home. Teachers saddle themselves with enormous workloads not for the pay but for the payoff in the classroom, as their students gain confidence, experience, and proficiency. The defining trait of teachers is the endeavor to advance every student, to help each pupil find their own interests and abilities which pushes them to a life of learning. CFA appreciates all that teachers do to serve and support students with ASD.
