Laurie Anfinson

Independence West Elementary

Laurie Anfinson is an Associate at West Elementary and has been the Teacher's Aide for my youngest4 son, Thomas since he was in 1st grade(he is in 5th now). She has helped Thomas, who is Autistic, in developing strong social skills, adjusting to a class room environment and become a normal student. She does not just work with Thomas but all the students in the class room. She is patient and kind, it is because of this that Thomas has made the significant strides in becoming a normal student versus only spending time in the special needs room. she deserves all the priase and I want everyone to know how wonderful she is.
