About Us

Our Journey

Bright Minds Mentoring is the product of many years of professional experience, personal struggles, and a desire to make a positive impact.  Mary began a teaching career in 1999.  Throughout this career, she has had the opportunity to work with a variety of students and families.  She has taught all grade levels K through 8 in a variety of settings and roles.  

The search for quality services began when Mary's child was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  After many trials, tribulations, and frustrations, our family was blessed to find amazing resources.  Our focus for many years was to ensure our child was able to receive services from caring, knowledgeable, and loving individuals.  Mary was inspired to begin a focus on special education certification and IEP services to better understand what to expect and how it can be provided in schools.  

The culmination of this journey is Bright Minds Mentoring.  Our desire is to equip your child and support your family with strategies and resources that make a positive impact.  We hope to partner with you on your journey ensuring your child's brightest future.
