My name is Sara Blaskowski. My family relocated to South Carolina in July 2015 from West Simsbury, CT. For Fourteen years, I worked 1:1 as a special education paraprofessional working with children on the autism spectrum in a school setting. In addition, I also supported students with autism during summer vacation in camp and classroom settings. I have also been a member of the Walk for Autism Speaks Volunteer committee for five years and supported students after school through the Unified Sports and Unified Theatre programs. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, swimming, biking, walking and I am learning to play golf!
