We love Happy Campers. Each day my kids can hardly wait to go back. Michelle is so loving and welcoming, it’s like she is another grandmother to my kiddos. I was a bit nervous because I am a stay at home mom and my kids are always with me and not used to being with other people for long stretches, but my kids were completely happy here.

Michelle is a warm, nurturing and a sensitive person, who has a tremendous amount of patience with our students.
Some of the disabilities that our students have include: Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Intellectual Disabilities and Emotional Disturbances. She was able to perform her assigned job duties with a calm demeanor and helped to diffuse many dangerous and volatile situations with some difficult students.She earned their trust and listened to them talk, which many people do not know how to do with this population.
I whole-heartedly recommend Michelle for any job position that she may apply for. She is trustworthy, dependable and caring. “Needless to say, any career working with children or people would be a great fit for her”.
