What Happens at a Warrior Moms' Pajama Party?
We Will Have Some Amazing Speakers
Julie Smith Fields
Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, a graduate of Cass Technical High School and Michigan State University, Julie has been married for 31 years to her husband Bruce and they have two sons, Aaron (27) and Daniel (25). She has worked as a Realtor for twenty five years.
Both of her son’s graduated from University of Detroit Jesuit High School in Detroit. It was while her son Daniel was in the sixth grade that it was discovered he had ADD and a processing issue. While it was a struggle, Daniel graduated in 2009 and committed to the University of Michigan where he was going to be a member of the baseball team. He was drafted in the sixth round by the Detroit Tigers in the June, 2009 draft and after playing in the organization for six years made his major league debut in June of 2015. He now is a member of the Chicago White Sox organization. Aaron was inspired by his brothers struggles to help kids who have different learning styles.
Individualized Education Plan Panel
Do these letters make you see red? Now you can stop. Our panel of IEP experts -Carolyn Gammicchia, Nicole Grabowski, Brenda Mann, and Carla Marymee - will show you how to advocate for your child and reduce the stress of planning for and participating in an IEP meeting.
