Founder and Program Director
After working in the medical field for many years, Sandy decided to focus on her passion for working with people that have special needs. Sandy's own son, who has Down Syndrome, was her inspiration for creating Academy of Dreams. She now focuses solely on developing and running the program. When she does have free time, Sandy enjoys watching movies, reading books, playing sports and spending time with her children and grandchildren.
Director of The Arts
Don uses his artistic talent by teaching the students about art and creating all sorts of wonderful projects with them. He has worked with our students since the beginning of Academy of Dreams and his continued passion for our program, students and the arts are invaluable. In his spare time, Don enjoys landscaping, volunteering, enjoying his family, and taking pictures(mostly selfies!).
