I'm a wife of 23 years and mother to a son and daughter.  I began my business when my husband began to lose his eyesight and could no longer work for the American Cancer Society.  He had to take a position as a special education assistant with my children driving him to school as they went.  I knew at that time I needed supplemental income.  That's how the Not So Typical Teacher was created.
